We are so pleased that Drew Defour was able to join us for this Summer’s session and lend us his talents by writing what I think will become a Songs on Sunday classic.  He song is a tightly woven rhythmic coming together of some very talented SOS collaborators.  Cory Maples had the job of pulling it all together and, in producing the final mix, he has done a stellar job of creating a cohesive sound from the many different voices and instruments that were offered up.

I wrote the song for my friend and musical collaborator Brad Phillips who has been through a lot this past year (his infant daughter fought cancer… and won!!!). The lyrics are meant to be a humble acceptance of the precarious nature of our existence.


Brad and I headlined an Ann Arbor festival together this summer and we talked about how he hasn’t released his own record yet. He’s written some great music, but he hasn’t put together an album that encompasses what he does when he plays live.


Anyhow, I wrote Some Day because I thought it would lend itself well to Brad’s brilliant Mandolin playing (although I didn’t have one handy so I wrote it on Ukulele, an engagement gift from my father-in-law).


He’s busy right now producing a record for Jeff Daniels and Brian Vander Ark of The Verve Pipe so it might be a while before he’s able to record it… so I thought I’d put it through Songs On Sunday – and what a great decision! These guys are amazing. Thanks so much!
