The latest single from the upcoming What Blues May Come album. This song is a Delta blues, a dreamy mood created with a steel resonator guitar, heartfelt poetry and a big beautiful night. Reflecting on the passing of a childhood friend, and the reminder of other unforgotten loved ones that we have said goodbye to, Steel Acres serves the need to hold the dark up to the light.

Gear: Gretsch Honey Dipper resonator guitar.

Mastered by Atomic Mastering

Also available to stream at Apple Music, Google Play, Spotify and Pandora.

Available Lyrics

Steel Acres

I’m writing to you knowing you won’t hear me
My whole life feels like letting people go

Look through my window when we’re near
Big beautiful night blowing through my dreams

The more I know the less I feel

Together
let us hold
the dark up

Hold the dark up to the light
Hold the dark up to the light

The troops are storming the sunrise again
The sunlight bleeds in rose shaded pearls

We have flown through stormy weather
There are few windows out of this world

The more I know the less I feel

Together
let us hold
the dark up

Hold the dark up to the light
Hold the dark up to the light
