After so much time spent in the studio pushing and pushing for new songs, new sounds, trying to turn the corner in my production quality, I wanted to come into 2016 with something that felt like an exhale of all of December's stress (good stress, but stress nonetheless). As some of you know, I had a pretty nasty cold that lasted from the end of 2015 through the start of 2016.
It's a bit weird to be at week 15 already, and to be doing a folk song (if you had told 2015 Greta to do a folk song, she would have hit you...not because I don't love folk but because I don't love singing folk). This song is Smile And Keep Your Head Up by Us The Duo, a band that I really like but had never considered covering because I didn't think it suited my voice very much. I'm glad I got the chance, special thanks to Derek for providing the excellent guitar tracks.
