Below are some examples of what I have in mind. You can hold a photo, but it can also be an everyday item. Amazon Music Unlimited. Amazon Advertising Kunden finden, gewinnen und binden. Shopbop Designer Modemarken. Amazon Warehouse Reduzierte B-Ware. Amazon Business Kauf auf Rechnung. Talking about Lucinda does that to me, too.
Simplicity is the hardest thing to achieve. Simple ideas, but powerful. KM : And she has the benefit of that growl. She can say anything and it would sound badass. I want it back. I know you said you were going through a breakup at the time and I feel like that is sort of the encapsulation of your feelings at that moment.
Can you tell me how that came about and what you were doing when you wrote it and why you did? So I was living in Williamsburg in Brooklyn and I was going through a breakup and going through those feelings that go along with that and I had a roommate who was as well and another dear friend. I think through the conversations we were having those images of something like a sparrow or a whore or a burden or an anchor, all of these things started to come through and I wanted to take the leap of writing something that intense.
And it was for me as a songwriter kind of a leap to be able to be that raw and it was sort of a challenge to myself to go there. I just remember sharing it with those two different women. NS : I want to make one comparison and see if you agree with me.
You know Kasey Chambers? NS : That is a great point in your favor. NS : Did you? She has gone through a lot of changes in her life since then, as have you since you wrote that song. Hopefully most of them for the positive in your case…. But when she came out with her newest album Little Bird she basically did an answer song, the title track, which is sort of what she in this place in her life would say to the girl at that period in her life.
Hey, that looks like a comfy pillow. Funny how you didn't offer ME a pillow when I rode in her. KM : [laughing] Exactly. KM : Well, I was talking a little bit about when I moved to New York City thinking of it as grad school for music, and part of what I started to do was listen to a lot of the old-school country that I had never listened to that much growing up, like Johnny Cash and the Carter family, and I think part of that began in that process of just listening to that music.
She died about four or five months before he did, and everybody was really surprised because Johnny had always been in and out of the hospital. So when he passed away—it was about a week or two after he had died—I was walking through Williamsburg near the East River. I was working as a receptionist at this place in Chinatown and I was sent on an errand to Staples or whatever, and a lot of the writing that I did in New York City would just be walking around, and I wrote it on the way to Staples.
I think probably that same week. But I had written a short story and there was a character in it that was basically me as a little girl, and so it was from her perspective… this Southern town. So it was a bunch of different things, but mainly the graffiti and some pieces that were already floating around.
