about

This is one of the first songs written for INTO THE BLUE. A bluesy ballad, that started with me exploring a Jimi Hendrix style approach to rhythm guitar, similar to songs like "Little Wing", "Wind Cries Mary", and "Hey Joe", with that gospel style sound. That was the basis for the song, and the first part recorded. Just about everything was in place on the demos before the lyrics were written and recorded: Lead guitars, rhythm guitars, B3 organ, piano, strings, bass and drums. I had a rough draft of lyrics and the idea of the title, "Why Am I Singing the Blues", which Kacee refined and rewrote to give a clear story line to the song. My original idea of the vocal melody did't sit well with her vocal range, and at first we thought Id' have to rerecord the whole song in a different key, but after spending some time with it, she came up with a much better melody that did't require a key change - thank god! This is my favorite song on the album, and I think it successfully combines my guitar style and song writing style with a very organic, bluesy sound.
