“SOME DAY” – This song is one i recorded for a dear friend of mine.  It tells a story of a passion we share for kayaking.  The beginning represents the sun glistening on the water.  It then settles into a rhythm – a steady beat – one that you feel if you’ve ever gone kayaking.  The waves soon hit and the song becomes more percussive in nature.  It’s so much fun when you’re up against the waves of the ocean and the boat is bobbing up and down.  It moves back to the rhythm and ends up in serenity once again.  Hope you enjoy!  Cheers. G.
