Cynthia Marchant “Heart Cracked Open Wide” – Listen

Heart Cracked Open Wide‘ is both the title track of Cynthia Marchant’s recent debut album, but is also an autobiographical tale.  The album as a whole sees Chicago based Marchant revisit her Arkansas roots, and on this song recalls the story of leaving and heading out west.  West?  Well, it would be years later down  a long, winding road that Cynthia Marchant would relocate from out west to the Midwest, where she found  her way into some very talented Chicago songwriting communities, including the Old Town School of Folk Music.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
