A switch flips and you do something unexpected. Before you know it, you’re on a journey of self-reflection. On a winding road of personal growth, confronting past versions of yourself. Searching for something that stays just out of reach.
“Blind Spot” was co-written with one of the Boston area’s best songwriters, acclaimed Americana artist Bob Bradshaw, and features Andrew Stern (Mark Erelli Band, Dennis Brennan Band) on slide guitar, Dave Brophy (Will Dailey, Alisa Amador) on drums & percussion, Joe McMahon on bass, and Peter Fernandez on organ.
This track has a different feel to it than other songs in this series. First of all, the vocals are very present in the mix. And though it’s a a traditional folk format, my producer (Dave Brophy) really steered away from that in the instrumentation and overall mix.
