Songs from the Wine Cellar is a series by David that features one track (both released and unreleased material) and the story behind it.
Check back monthly for new music from the wine cellar!
I was living in Chicago as a producer when I wrote this one. The notorious Chicago winter had just let loose its grip, and the first warm day of Spring arrived. I left the recording studio, turned up Michigan Ave., where a lovely woman in a light spring dress slowly passed me by. I looked – she looked – I looked down at my feet and thought “oh my…” She noticed this, knowingly smiled, and just breezed on.
A song was born.
Many years later, I holed up in Ann Arbor with my musical friends from Chicago (& Chelsea) and we cut it.
I explained to everyone the inspiration and asked that we capture the poetry of that moment.
They certainly did…
