Story

This piece started with a rhythmic idea I came up with that reminds me of some of Philip Glass' work, and is also reminiscent of a track on my first album The Crossing called "Exeter Cathedral". I first recorded the rhythm track on piano, then added a melody line doubled on accordion and glockenspiel. A simple baritone guitar part rounded out the track. When I first played it for Gretchen, she said it reminded her of riding out an ice storm in a cozy house with a fire blazing. There was my title.
