'En attendant' - New Song Release, March 16, 2021...
On this same day in 2020, much of the world went into lockdown ('confinement' as they say in French) and I thus spent nearly three months alone in my 350sq ft apartment in Paris.
I'll never forget the sensation of the first time I ventured to a nearby square and saw that Spring had sprung without me. That bright, fluorescent green on the trees...I felt like I was hallucinating (a verse in the song was inspired by this experience.)
Like so many others, this time brought immense challenges but also growth as we dug deep and found strength in each other! My friend (and amazing photographer) Amélie Chopinet was a huge part of my support team and encouraged me to post songs and turn to my music. Perhaps inspired by that, she began to write lyrics for me in French. She knew that to finally record a French/English lyric album has been my dream. So, it was a welcome inspiration to receive the poem that would be come the song 'En attendant.'
The creation of this song is a reflection of the times and I know it will always be special to me for so many reasons.
I wish you all the best in this difficult time. Stay together, because it's together that we find hope and strength to carry on.
