Graces and Contentions

by Bruce Abbott McDermott

These are songs about stories that emanate from reflections on life and people. Some are my story some are of others. They are songs about love, anticipation, and mortality couched in the musical genre that seems most fitting to me.

Album Notes
I wander in a world , as perhaps you do, that is mostly a mystery. Why, whether about relationships, or the bigger questions of life, are a constant refrain in this music. Yet it is the ordinary day to day events we all participate in that keep us grounded and keep us whole. These things are as important as the big questions and I like that.
We all ask why things are as they are, but in the final analysis life must be lived on its' own terms. There are only two reasons for being here that I can see. One is to do what we can for others. A hard task most certainly, to make things a bit better for the whole. Lastly, to enjoy the moment while doing our time here.
But too much philosophy can ruin the musical soup. A song is really only as good as the melody and punch it produces. Everything else by way of content is gravy.
