For a song with a central storyline around life changing in an instant, ‘Blink’ sure took a long time to be fully realized. I first put pen to paper after a period of writer’s block, and willed it into existence after giving myself permission to write a song that sucked. That song (about losing a dirty sock in the the dryer) cleared the cobwebs for what was to become ‘Blink’.
Once the first draft was in decent shape I brought it into a writing session with songwriter James Linderman, where we discovered the walking baseline that grounds the song. Next up… the demo.
