Back in the 90’s when I was busking every day at the seabus and going to University I wrote a song with a woman named Kate MacColl. I had this chord progression I kept playing but that was it. She came back the next day with these lyrics and moving melody. We recorded the song on my guitar and her vocals at a studio just to “have it”. I really never thought about it much until 20 years later when she contacted me to tell me she entered it in a contest and it got runner up. I went to her website and had a listen. It’s still got legs all these years later. You never know in the music business when your songs will finally mean something to someone.
You can here the song here if you wish.
