I wrote “Where Are You Now?" on November 9, 2016. I'd spent the night prior at a gathering of women, energized and ready for a historic moment. That moment never came. Instead the wind was knocked out of us by what felt like the sudden death of a close friend. Smiles turned to tears, disbelief, humiliation. Months later, a profound sense of loss continues to follow me around, though I am amazed by the energy and conviction that have emerged as well.
The single’s cover art (above) is a photograph of a piece by artist and friend Spencer Merolla. The piece is called "A Loss". Spencer crafted it from the clothes she wore on election night: a white pantsuit honoring the Suffragettes. It seems perfectly fitted to go alongside the song, as she was working through her grief too.
The video was filmed and directed by Mark L. Feinsod at Acme Hall Studios and features my debut playing piano in front of a camera. It's good to be vulnerable sometimes.
"Where Are You Now?" is on iTunes, Bandcamp, Spotify and other digital music outlets.
Thank you for listening!
