It's no secret that Tom Rosenthal's music has been singing to my soul this past year.
I can't get enough of his tender heartfelt voice and poetic melancholic lyrics.
Every week, I check his page, trying to see if I can see him perform live in the near future.
His current European tour sadly doesn't align with my schedule... but I am getting my 'fix' by listening to him repeatedly on Spotify and scouting his brilliant artistry on youtube.
This one is a current favorite of mine.
It's a personal song he wrote this past year after his father passed away.
The intimacy and heartache in his voice and lyrics give me chills. Chills full of feelings:
"And so to the last night of your stay,
waited all night and watched you sleep.
I've never done that before.
And you know what?
It was the best night of my life.
To be close to your dreams for the very first time."
In April 2020, while experiencing her first ever global pandemic, Tamar Pelzig pledged to write something every day, even if it's only a word, so she welcomed to the world a daily blog to keep her creative writing wheels rolling.
