A few years ago, I joined a songwriting workshop given by Jan Bell, a fellow singer and songwriter I know from back in Brooklyn. She gave the participants the assignment of looking at a picture and writing a song from it. There was a New York Times article available at the workshop about female bike messengers working in New York City. There were some really great images of tough and tattooed women cyclists. The song “She’s Not Waiting” came out of that assignment. Ironically, a couple of weeks after I wrote the song, I ran into that actual bike messenger in the office building I worked at in Manhattan. I don’t have a copy of the picture, but you can read a digital version of the article at NewYorkTimes.com. Sometimes I think of changing the title to “Wings on Her Heels”.
This week I also recorded a video of the Gram Parsons song “Return of the Grievous Angel”.
You can view both videos on my Rachel Lee Walsh YouTube Channel.
Thanks for listening. See you next week.
Happy Friday All.
Thanks for joining me again for 52in52. This week I posted an original song called “Between You and Me”. Check it out on my RLW YouTube Page.
Thanks for listening. Have a great weekend and I’ll see you on flip side.
Hello and Happy Thursday.
To kick things off for 52in52, I’ve done a cover song by Amos Lee called “Sweet Pea”. It’s an older song by him but one I find myself singing quite often lately, mostly to my toddler, as it has such a sweet and danceable melody. Check it out on my RLW YouTube Page.
See you next week.
