Singled Out: Jason Reeves
This song is strange for me. It is a portion of hope - flickering and floating around in a pool of darkness like a firefly against a starless sky. I wrote it in a moment of silent desperation with a friend, holding onto the simple idea that somewhere in the world there is somebody waiting for you.... that is feeling the exact same things you are feeling and thinking the exact same beautifully insane thoughts that there is somebody that will make you fall just as hard for them as they do for you..... if not harder and that you might have to be brave. Brave because of the fear that's because of the pain, and brave because you may have to face what has failed you before, again and again, but in the end no ocean of heartache could ever swallow up or smother the brilliant spark of love.
This recording is a demo with make-up on. It was originally just an acoustic guitar and one vocal, sung in a closet immediately after writing it, as a "demo/remember-how-the-song-even-goes" kind of deal. The drums, bass and keys and all that were added later on. A lot of the songs on my record are demos. I think they come out pure that way, and usually cannot be beat..
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album and Jason - right here!
