As A Long and Precious Road gets ever nearer to completion I grow more and more excited to let the colors of this album shine. It's a beauty. Ships Are Meant to Sail is one of my favorite tracks, and I have chosen to share it here in its most stripped down simplest light.
Never have I had such an intensive labor as I did with this song. I began to feel absolutely crazy, so caught up and obsessed with getting it right that I worried I never would and would be caught forever in the purgatory between inception and completion. It took many months of intense focus, which is just not how I do these things. It was hard. But it was worth it.
Please go to my website and sign up for my email list if you haven't already, as I would love to let you know when A Long and Precious Road is out there in the world. It cannot wait to sing for you.
With love, Shawnee
