New Album – Walk by Will Retherford

Posted on by Emery in Music, Will Retherford | Leave a comment

This artist came to my attention through Matthew Reed. I wanted to go ahead and post this video so you’ll have a taste of what is coming down the pipe.  I’ll post more about some of Will Retherford’s songs in the next couple of days.

Great Post by John Mark McMillan

1.  This post is the original John Mark McMillan.

2.  There is nothing skin deep about what you’re about to read….and that’s really refreshing.

I knew something was wrong, but I didn’t realize I was leaking until I tried to write a song. For weeks I came up from my office each day with almost nothing.  When I showed my wife what I did have, she wanted to know why I’d written myself out of my songs: why didn’t I use the terms “I” and “me” anymore (and hadn’t for years actually).  I realized the reason “I” wasn’t in my songs anymore was because I wasn’t in my songs.  I had nothing to say.  My well was a sandbox. I was dry as a bone.  Real music comes from real life, and I didn’t have much of one anymore.  I’d become consumed with keeping a machine running so that I could keep the budget flush.  I became involved in a process that I’d seen a hundred times.  The business that is created to support a vision begins to drive the vision itself.  This is when things start to feel plastic and disingenuous.  This is when things start to suck.  This is when I check out.

Any thoughts?
