I’m so flattered Princess of Pages wanted to get to know me better! Thank you, Jamie! Make sure you check out her post too. You never know what you might have in common!
1. What’s your middle name? Marie
2. Last time you cried? I can’t remember… It wasn’t that long ago. It was a video… OH! I remember. Oh, God. I’m going to cry again. So, this is actually a long story.
Let me take you back to 2005 when my husband and I got really involved in the local music community via the local filmmaking community because several of our friends were in both. A few of them being in a semi-successful indie folk rock band called She Swing, She Sways.
They were and still are one of my favorite bands. Unfortunately, they broke up. For reasons, I won’t get into. I’d always held out hope for a reunion because IMO they were magic. They were Mumford and Sons before Mumford and Sons hit big. They were The Lumineers before The Lumineers hit big. They formed around the same time these bands did and were at least on that level but just didn’t make it before falling apart.
Then, the lead singer passed away.
He was a good friend and one of the most talented singer/songwriters. We miss him very much.
It’s now been a few years since his passing and almost 10 years since the band dissolved, but when one of the band members shared this post, I lost it.
Sorry it’s only a Facebook video. I tried finding it elsewhere but I don’t think it is.
This is one of the songs John wrote and it broke my heart he won’t see it and it warmed my heart to know he and the band made a big enough impact to still have fans cover their songs.
