Singled Out: Tony Lucca's Always
As an independent artist who spends more than half the year on the road, I wind up getting in most of my songwriting between sound checks and showtimes, in the back seat of a tour van or in some cheap hotel room on any of a handful of my days off. Unfortunately, I was on tour while my wife was in her third trimester, expecting our daughter, Sparrow. Of course my head was spinning with countless thoughts of becoming a father for the first time, much less that of a baby girl. Somehow the idea of being able to honestly Love someone - completely, unconditionally, forever - became so overwhelming that I couldn't help but write about it. The words came to me during a night drive through Colorado and the next day I was able to sit down at a piano and came up with something to go along with it. The result was the song "Always." It's funny how quiet I'm able to get some rooms when playing this song live. Even the toughest of cookies seem to connect to it, especially if they've ever had the pleasure of bringing a child into the world and loving them as only a parent can. It's pretty damn cool, really.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album - right here!
