Songs from the Willow Dec. 20, 2017

15 individuals came together to create an awesome, original song. How did we manage that? With the superior help and guidance from Joe Lapinski and the incredible talent of our members.

We started with listening to Neil Young and The Beach Boys to get us in the mindset of what is possible, and followed it with meditation exercises that led to creative writing.

Then the acoustic guitar players came up with a simple melody and we jammed out with member artist Paul Reslinski’s lyrics. By the end of class we were harmonizing!

This ongoing music making project will result in a record being released and live performances. If you couldn’t make it to the first two classes, there will be plenty of opportunities to join in. You won’t want to miss it! Click here for more info and here for the upcoming winter 2017 schedule. 

 

 

Lyrics by Paul Reslinski :

Back to a time of colour

Further back to grey

Back to a time of mother

I wish I could stay

Back to a time of father

I do hope you’re ok

 

You can’t go on without memory

You can’t go on without pain

You can’t go on without memory

You can’t go on without faith
