Was watching the Hail Hail Rock n' Roll Chuck Berry documentary, which is full of wonderful interviews, and got inspired to write a blues number.

Straightforward blues song. I liked the sound of the opening chords with open strings, and just put a 12-bar structure around them.

This is about a guy who's just in a bad situation. Lost his woman and is continuing down a road that seems like it just leads to hell.

This was a song I wrote to a beat that I wrote for a friend to rap over, unfortunately for him I liked it too much and wrote this the same night we came up with the instrumental. The meaning behind the song is not meant to be set in stone, but it was inspired by a scene I thought up where a person on a roof is seen regularly by a man below, and then about how this man creates a persona for the man on the roof. Singing bear is just a metaphor for anything that provides comfort.
It was a cold hard day
Up amongst the rafters
Nothing was changing
Except the suns rays and
When he looked down
He saw all of his masters
Someday I will look up to him
Mr. poor man can't you see
The people are warm
and you are free to go
you can't see from my point of view
Some people say you lost your way and can't get out
And some people they strange whisper and you fall into a wisp of despair till you believe
Yeah you believe,
Your hope is on the wire
Give me its only faith and cornered style
I want you take all of my gratitude
I've got my singing bear for me too
Staring at me looking through everything i do
I believe, I believe, I believe, you'll believe in it too

My musical partner and I wrote this on his back porch in Brooklyn, summer 2012. It's a real simple tune, yet gets a great reaction when played live, just me and the guitar. It's one of my favorite new tunes!
