Kendl Winter “Solitude” – Listen

The ironic thing about this lead track from Kendle Winter’s new album ‘Stumbler’s Business‘ is that  it’s distinctive sound and lyrics have been put together in anything less than ‘Solitude‘.  Quite the reverse as Kendl explains “I ran with Solitude for about a year, It started on a foggy one lane highway in the Smokies in West Virginia, I took it on the rail trail in the Hudson Valley and stumbled on some more of it riverside in Waterloo, Iowa. I fumbled over the lyrics running in circles in Durham and sang them drunk at my bandmate in a motel where he gave me the line “I’ll be sober, four leaf clover, and I answered “I swear I’ll never drink again.” …I sang with myself and got some friends to sing with me…I spent a lot of time with Solitude before it was ready. It was great to do it together.

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?
