kyle and i had spent the whole day at the smoakstack in nashville tracking with our friends and decided to do a few more songs in a way that we had never done them before. cause sometimes winging it keeps you on your toes just enough so that each word is thrown in an vulnerable recklessness. where you’re pretty much at the mercy of every moment and element unknown as it comes. which in this case was fought off with giggles.
Kacie and i have come along way in our knowing each other. a while back when i was doing my FIRST pledge campaign to raise money for Plastic Moon, i noticed one very supportive, very sweet, very engaged girl on my pledge page. from there, kacie and i have grown quite close and have creatively collaborated in a multitude of ways over the last year and a half, and i’m hoping we will continue to do so for a very long time. this is the song we wrote together along with Kyle Ryan one hot hot summer day in nashville TN.
this video was taken when my lady friends were in town in my new home in Los Angeles CA. i love my lady friends. and though we’re all spread apart across the ol u s of a i know we’re tied together forever in our lady ways. alice rutherford, morgan perice, and i were in the park picnicking and reading and lounging and wearing big floppy lady hats when this GIANT hornet descended and ATTACKED this lil bee guy and we watched in TOTAL awe as lil bee guy was literally demolished and torn limb from body from limb. hornet fled the scene with the body meat of lil bee guy while the rest of lil bee guy struggled to see a few more seconds of our beautiful summer afternoon.
