“I’ll Take You Away” by Rachel Lee Walsh
Thanks for joining me for the second week of Fifty-Two in Fifty-Two. I dug out an original song I wrote two years ago titled “I’ll Take You Away”. I love pulling out old songs like this and getting to see what inspired my writing at the time. I wrote “I’ll Take You Away” during a crazy cold winter season in New York City when I was ready to escape city life. Playing the song and looking back like this made me laugh a little, particularly now that I live in the sunny burbs of Northern California and barely have to wear a sweater in January. Check out the video on my RLW YouTube Page.
Thanks for listening. See you next week.
“Sweet Pea” – An Amos Lee Cover by Rachel Lee Walsh
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.
Hello and Happy New Year. In 2013, I completed a project with 5 other songwriters called “The Ignition Lab”. We were each looking for motivation and a creative approach to getting new songs written so we started the challenge of writing a new song each week and posting them online. Yes, 52 new songs in 52 weeks! For 2016, I’m revisiting the idea of 52 songs in 52 weeks as a solo project. Each week I will be posting either a new original song, an interpretation of another musicians song, or a new performance of one of my old songs. You can follow the whole year of songs right here or on my personal YouTube page.
