Philadelphia/Red Bank NJ-based, Alt-Americana Established Songwriter, Brian Seymour, Announces “Dandelion” from Upcoming LP American Courage

According to Seymour, “‘Dandelion’ sprang to life as a rush of joy at my piano one pre-dawn shuffle in mid-winter. I had been thinking about how love, even when it is sublime, is a struggle. This romp testifies it is all worth it and tomorrow is a chance to make it right and to love more. I wrote Dandelion after I had sorted songs for a new record. In that chapter, I was writing mostly at the piano and felt as if I needed to let loose. The song was one of those miracles, it just happened. Some trimming and shaping helped it to breathe, but it was all there that solitary morning of cold floors and hushed melodies. “Dandelion” is a 2:45 meditation on the essential truth of love, that it happens, it is not a memory or a fable, it grows and needs care to thrive. Tomorrow we love, more.”

Terrible Sons Announces New Album ‘The Raft Is Not The Shore;’ Release New Song “Asperatus”

Woven throughout by the twin ideas of the passing of time and water, The Raft Is Not The Shore signals a new chapter of intentional songwriting in Terrible Sons’ discography. After three EPs, this debut album came together during the pandemic as the duo attempted to “write closer together, about what we know, what was moving us at the time, and putting ourselves in vulnerable spaces,” states Matt Barus. The band had a fluid list of titles but the only one that stuck was The Raft Is Not The Shore, a line from a Buddhist parable between a Vietnamese and American, two poets and activists. “One of the meanings was the idea to hold your beliefs lightly. In light of the entrenched spaces we find ourselves in 2022/23, this felt prescient and gave further meaning to our songs. To be willing to walk in another’s shoes, or to at least imagine, was something we wanted to hold ourselves to.”
