1. Hey Elisa!

From the recording Hey Elisa!

It started as a conversation with a friend who was struggling, weighed down by their current circumstance, and unable to see any escape. I asked, if she could do anything, what would she do? I was thinking vocationally, but her response was, “I would like to be a bird. Be able to fly.” And that’s where the song came from. Musically, it's a lovelorn, finger-picked folk song at its core, but there's a pop sensibility that keeps things moving along and introducing new elements throughout, including an unusual intro, harmony slide guitar, mellotron, bright dashes of piano, and synthesizer lines that enhance the feeling of a bird flying at different paces through the song.
