efficient and polite

Hey, Could we do that again? I know we haven't met, but I don't want to be an ant. You know? I mean, it's like we go through life with our antennas bouncing off one another, continuously on ant autopilot, with nothing really human required of us. Stop. Go. Walk here. Drive there. All action basically for survival. All communication simply to keep this ant colony buzzing along in an efficient, polite manner. Here's your change. Paper or plastic?' Credit or debit? You want ketchup with that? I don't want a straw. I want real human moments. I want to see you. I want you to see me. I don't want to give that up. I don't want to be ant, you know?

put away your mirrors

“Perhaps we dont like what we see: our hips, our loss of hair, our shoe size, our dimples, our knuckles too big, our eating habits, our disposition. We have disclosed these things in secret, likes and dislikes, behind doors with locks, our lonely rooms, our messy desks, our empty hearts, our sudden bursts of energy, our sudden bouts of . Don’t worry. Put away your mirrors and your beauty magazines and your books on tape. There is someone right here who knows you more than you do, who is making room on the couch, who is fixing a meal, who is putting on your favorite record, who is listening intently to what you have to say, who is standing there with you, face to face, hand to hand, eye to eye, mouth to mouth. There is no space left uncovered. This is where you belong.”

Dear You.

Today we share two favourites, but from the same artist.

Joshua James - Crash This Train


Joshua James - Lord, Devil & Him


Joshua James is an American rock and folk musician currently based out of Utah.  He is often compared to Bob Dylan, Bright Eyes, Neil Young, or Ray Lamontagne.  We love his intimate vocal style and bittersweet lyrics, often dealing with tragedy, religion, and substance abuse.  We can hear that his music is laden with passion.  Give him a chance.

Sufjan Stevens - For the Widows in Paradise, for the Fatherless in Ypsilanti


Sufjan has to be one of the most talented artists we have ever seen.  He is able to play instruments, write music and sing.  He often plays several instruments in the same song, recording them overtop.   Though he has explicitly, repeatedly stated an intent to separate his beliefs from his music, Sufjan draws from the bible and other spiritual traditions freely, incorporating spiritual elements into his music often.  This really makes his songs meaningful and worth looking into deeper.  We like him, do you?

Kina Grannis - Valentine


Kina Grannis started off as an unknown You Tuber, but has increased in popularity since she started posting, and really how could anyone not love her music? With an amazing voice, and gentle acoustics, she is a true gem and sings straight from her heart. We hope you will follow her on YouTube and keep checking out her music!
It's some of the best and you won't want to miss it.

Griffin House - The Guy That Says Goodbye To You Is Out Of His Mind


This is a feel good tune that should be dedicated to all the girls of the world.  If only we all had a little sweetie like Griffin to tell us how special we are.  I guess while we're waiting for Mr. Right or our Knight in Shining Armour to sweep us off our feet, we'll have to settle for this song on repeat.

Barefoot Truth - All Good Reasons


"Mixing the sounds of folk, rock, jazz, and reggae, with lyrics full of unbridled optimism, the band has crafted a sound that is distinctly Barefoot Truth."  This is exactly why we have a thing for them!  They are on tour and if they're in your area, we encourage you to check them out!

Switchfoot - Your Love Is A Song


They first gained recognition as their music was included on the Movie Soundtrack for A Walk To Remember.  Since then, their seventh studio album Hello Hurricane received a Grammy award in 2011 for Best Rock Gospel Album.  We interests us, is how they got their name.  According to Jon Foreman, the name "Switchfoot" is a surfing term. "We all love to surf and have been surfing all our lives so to us, the name made sense. To switch your feet means to take a new stance facing the opposite direction. It's about change and movement, a different way of approaching life and music."

The Perry Band - If I Die Young


This song has almost reached it's 30 millionth view!  It's pretty well known, but we thought that it would be a good one to share today! This catchy tune has reached number one on the Hot Country Songs charts and has been certified platinum.

A lyric to make you think "funny how you're dead, people start to listen".  That's one to ponder.

Dear You.

Today we share a cover favourite shared to us by a friend. Share you're favourites at songs.from.us.to.you@gmail.com.

Sam Tsui & Christina Grimmie - Just A Dream Cover


This cover brings more to the song than the original (by Nelly).  Their voices are so complimentary that you wonder how there could ever be a more perfect match.  Sam Tsui has started working on some original pieces, so we are holding our breath for when he releases those.

Give Me Heart - Susie Suh


Just listen. Susie Suh's voice is beautiful, and we fell in love with it as soon as we heard it.  She started singing in 2005 and since then has wowed us with her music.  Influenced by artists like Joni Mitchell and Beth Gibbons, Susie has definitely made a name for herself.  Take five minutes out of your day and just listen, it isn't hard to do.
