“Loneliness” is a song I wrote when I was going through a rough patch. I was in the midst of a bout of depression brought out by a stagnation of my career and wasn’t really leaving the house. It was winter, which made things worse. What really helped me feel better was remembering that career/music isn’t everything and appreciating the relationships around me, specifically that of my girlfriend at the time. She was a shining light through my dark time, reminding me that as important as your goals are, connection and love is the foundation of feeling good and whole.
I had always wanted to add a female vocalist to “Loneliness” as a re-release. I thought with the right artist, the song would be really special as a duet. Then I was listening to the Spotify playlist “Lorem” one day and this song “Calvaire” by spill tab came on. I immediately loved it and thought the artist’s voice was incredible – so I reached out to see if she would be interested. I’m honored that she was and then when I finally heard what she had written I was blown away. Her vocals are so beautiful and haunting and in my opinion add a really unique perspective/ vibe to one of my favorite songs I’ve ever written.
