Jared Grabb “Stroll” – daily exercise is still permitted…

Jared Grabb has been recording music for twenty years, and has just released his sixth album ‘Domain.’ ‘Domain’ was recorded at home during height of the pandemic and with a news cycle that went beyond just the disease and the toll of hospitalizations and deaths to encompass a polarized world where leaders apparently endorsed racism and misogyny and the consequences were played out in a grizzly cycle of events.  Like the pandemic wasn’t bad enough.

‘Stroll’ has a Bradburyesque pedestrian going “for a stroll. Let’s watch that sun set ‘cause there’s nowhere to go,” but finding that there’s no escaping the world “walk past the graves, when we hear fireworks. Or, maybe it’s a gun.”  It’s uneasy and has no simple answers – and admits that avoidance is the unhelpful but very human reaction.

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?
