Time To Move On

November 7th, 2020 was the day the Presidential election was called. I happened to be at Retro City Studios with my friend, drummer/producer Matt Muir that day. Most of the time I come in with a song or two ready to go, but I didn't have anything I was hot on recording this time. We had never recorded a cover, but Tom Petty's 'Time to Move On' had been rattling around my brain for a day or so, like an ear worm that needed attention. So Muir and I decided to do it. He immediately noted that we couldn't do it in the style of Petty, and I totally agreed.

So we started working out a groove. I found a minor chord progression that was definitely a departure from the original, and from there we laid down the acoustic guitar and a similarly adapted vocal melody. It pays homage to Mr. Petty's original, but we wanted to speak to the moment, and the moment was full of uncertainty. A heavy sadness has been with me from time to time in the pandemic year. In this instance, I think it was a combination of personal and collective sadness, stress, anger and anxiety, followed by a touchpoint of respite that day. It was the strange calm that underlies these very powerful emotions, and it was palpable for me. There's a balance to what we came up with, and I pray that our country can again learn to strike that balance, albeit at a much lower volume.

As has become the way of many recordings in the quarantine era, we did the rest of it remotely. Tom Gillam recorded his slide and electric guitar parts from Texas. Brendan McGeehan did his bass arrangement from his home studio in Philly, as did Barrie Maguire with his absolutely menacing guitar solo. Adam Flicker did play organ in studio. Those guys all hit the mark, then we mixed it at Kawari Sound.

Many thanks to 88.5 WXPN for giving it some spins, we really appreciate the support.

    I was recording a song at Retro City Studios with my friend, drummer/producer Matt Muir on November 7th 2020. We ended up making a cover of Tom Petty's 'Time to Move On'. The day we recorded the song happened to be when President Donald Trump won re-election and called for his victory speech in front of thousands of [url=https://www.we-heart.com/2021/05/26/why-do-students-hire-professional-essay-writing-services/]essay writer[/url] supporters. It was an intense time both inside and outside of the studio that made me realize how much has changed since 2016.
