Ashes & Dust (Erin's Song)
This is a song about being rescued from depression. A few years ago I was in a dark place in my life. I was depressed, lost, just going through the motions, not really living. I was struggling emotionally, spiritually, mentally, while trying to keep alive a relationship that was unhealthy and unsalvageable. Once a huge part of my life, writing and playing music had all but faded into the past. Recognizing the state her father was in, my very wise daughter called me one day and suggested we do an open mic together. We did and what happened next was truly a rebirth! I found me, again. The power of music and the love of a daughter for her father saved me and brought me back to life! In a very real way, she is my hero.
