about

These songs were written in Lexington, Kentucky in Hedges' former apartment during the writing sessions for the full length album Curvature. These are perhaps his most intimate and revealing recordings to date. Recorded using primarily a built-in microphone on an old laptop, a childhood keyboard, and an acoustic guitar, all the attention is drawn to Hedges soulful voice and his surprising, intimate lyrics. In the spirit of Bruce Springsteen's Nebraska, this collection of songs works precisely because they are raw, off-the-cuff, and revealing. In contrast to the slick production of his solo record Curvature and his work with July For Kings, this is Hedges at his most fragile.

Track Name: Walk Carefully
insects and rain clouds
inhale and ex-
now i can breathe
i'm entering the stream here.
float on our backs
cool evening sky turning black for our sleep
oh selfless light!

there's no sense
crying for the passing of days
nothing you can cling to will stay
but change
let it go
let it go
fall away
like falling of snow
down

straight

down

big fish and conch
inhale ex-
pell all the knives
i'm entering the sea here
water to tread
cool morning sky turning red
for our lives
oh selfless night!

[we] won't
be crying for the passing of days
nothing we can cling to will stay
but change
so let it go!
let it go
fall away
like falling of snow
down

straight

down

please
hold onto some grace for us
grieve, grieve for the grass we crush down
we walk carefully

please
hold onto some grace for us
grieve, grieve for the grass we crush down
we walk carefully
