Behind The Song Pt. 5 ~ Changes In The Weather

Welcome to the fifth post of our Socially Distant Storytellers Series! We recorded the entire record with Earle Mankey at his Psychedelic Shack in T.O. It was an honor and privilege to get to work with him once again! The recording was mastered by Guy Martin at Black Couch Studios, who is always a pro! The fifth track off the record is Changes in the Weather. Take a listen and enjoy the story! We’d love to hear your feedback and answer any questions you have in the comments! Stay safe friends and enjoy your Thursday evening!

Quote and Reviews:
“The Newest musical  endeavor from the Ventura duo Medicine Hat has just enough twang, fiddle and great finger picking to qualify as a bonafide Americana album. Robert and Michelle have found their groove with this new record. A favorite is ‘Changes in the Weather’ with vocals that harken back to 60’s Laurel Canyon.” ~Polly Hoganson, Ones To Watch Presents

CHANGES IN THE WEATHER 

Got some things I wanna say to you 

There’s some things that I wanted to do 

I can’t help myself 

I keep falling down 

Got some things I wanna say to you 

There’s some things I’ve been going through 

How can I run to you 

Without my feet on the ground 

How can I run to you 

Without my feet on the ground 

It’s been a long, long time 

Been a long, long time 

It’s been a long, long time 

There’s been changes in the weather 

Change is in the weather 

Yeah, there’s been changes in the weather 

Got some things I wanna say to you 

There’s some things that I wanted to do 

I can’t help myself 

I keep falling down 

Got some things I wanna say to you 

There’s some things I’ve been going through

 

Behind the music: 

We wrote this song about 3 or so years ago out at the beach (like so many others). We were camping and Robert jumped up like he was on fire and ran to the trailer for his guitar. “I had to strum it before it left my head” he said. He came out playing the beginning of the song. It was one that came quick and the ideas flowed naturally. When we needed a second part I remembered something I’d jumped out of the shower to record before I forgot it, sometime before and had never finished, but loved. The two seemed to fit together beautifully! Two sparks that made a fire! We’ve been playing it out as a duo and a full band for quite awhile now. So it continues to develop both as an acoustic/singer songwriter and electric/full band song. Super fun both ways and one of my all time favorites for sure!
