Circa Blue has released a new recording, with a music video, of a song they originally cut back in 2016.
It’s one called I Sing Your Song, written by Steve Harris, with David Morris and Dawn Kenney, which is offered now as a duet between Harris and Valerie Smith. Circa Blue is working with Bell Buckle Music, Val’s record label, and she says that the song really spoke to her with its story of watching a loved one pass from a terminal illness.
“I heard the lyrics to this song, and it touched on some personal experiences of mine. I’ve had friends who have lost themselves to depression, dementia, and other illnesses. It’s heartbreaking, and all you can do is have empathy.”
So they have re-recorded the song, starting with a sparse accompaniment of guitar and mandolin, giving new life to this story of love and loss.
