Joey Beach’s new song with a purpose

On the Your Tuesday Afternoon Alternative program today we are playing a terrific new song ‘Come Outside‘ from the forthcoming ‘Horrible World’ album from Manray’s Joey Beach courtesy of the fine folks at REALLYREAL RECORDINGS. We are excited about new music from Joey but are especially moved that he is taking the opportunity to support the family of Simon Kingston who was taken from us far too early.

Joey is running a preorder on his two-track 7” (‘Come Outside’ and ‘Horrible World’ and all profits are going straight to the Simon Kingston Memorial Fund. So, listen to the program today and get a peek at new music from Joey and consider supporting a most worthy cause!

Tuesday World Premier: The Nautical Theme – Break My Fall

the-nautical-theme-IMG_0651-Split-ToneThis Tuesday YTAA will have the world premier of The Nautical Theme‘s first single ‘Break My Fall‘ from the forthcoming record ‘Lows and Highs‘ (release show on March 21st). This powerful song has incredible impact on the listener. We are so proud of Tesia and Matt for creating music that is so insightful.

From the band: ‘Break My Fall’ was one of the first songs written for Lows and Highs. When we were thinking about how to present the song on the album we wanted it to fall into the “highs” side of the “Lows and Highs”, which meant filling out the arrangement.

84979098_1078920682485082_7383412840431878144_oFortunately our friend and great supporter of the band, Justin Crim was willing to work with us on providing the drums for the track. The meaning behind the lyrics took a turn for me while we were still working to finalize the song. Originally, the idea behind the first line “well, you came in like a child without the burdens of the world upon your mind” was quite literal, thinking of my children and their innocence of perspective on the world around them. It was about me trying to learn how to see the circumstances of my life with a fresh perspective – to be more like them.

the-nautical-theme-IMG_0561-Split-ToneUnfortunately, around the time we were writing this song, my grandmother passed away. My memories tend to be very visual in nature. One of the first times I sang those lyrics after she passed, I saw clearly in my mind’s eye one of her visits to a childhood home of mine when I was still very young. She was playing with me just as if she was a child of my own age – so fun, playful, and carefree.

So, during the crescendo of the song, when we’re singing “wide, you break my fall with your arms open wide”, I’m thinking about the supportive and loving nature of my grandmother and in general the self-sacrifice of those that come before us who gladly catch us when we stumble and hold us up through our journeys.  

Join Dr. J at 3pm this Tuesday to hear ‘Break My Fall’ from The Nautical Theme!
