I replied, "write me a song to sing by the end of the day". Within a few hours, the demo for 'Way to Somewhere' was in my hands. Producer Tyrone Stanford listened, got jazzed, and created a whole new arrangement using edgy guitars, pizzicato strings, bass slides, and …

The Holy Mountain

by Kalib

Released 2016
Asylum Arts
Released 2016
Asylum Arts
Reflecting on the journey to self enlightenment, getting beyond personal drama, and the trap such a journey can become.
NOTES
One Sunday morning, this wrong wrote itself. I watched as the words come flowing out of my fingers onto the screen. No clue what they were about until a certain film appeared and explained it all. The desire to grow can become an obsession. Even it my need to go, if one is to be present.

Obsessing

Released 2016

Just another Country Rock infused song from a broken heart. Who writes a letter, when texting is quicker.
NOTES
"She'd been gone for over a year and I'd tried to write a song about the experience. It just refused to happen. Then one afternoon, bamn! it was fully formed in my head: the words, the melody, the structure. Its the only time this has ever happened. Friends convinced me to change two words, but otherwise it's the same."
