Song Synopses:
“Come Back” is partly autobiographic in the sense that it describes my unquenchable explorative thirst. I’m not one that can sit still for a very long time. Always on the move and always, almost nomadically searching for new grounds. Physically, professionally, and also, perhaps at the underlying foundation of it all on a deeper level; forever a student, hungry to learn, fail and grow forward.

The song and lyrics also include an inner and external dialogue around the flipside of that infinite quest. The realization that my ventures mean nothing without the anchor that is home, where the heart and the battery charger to my soul are. With my wife, my friends and family, my pets and the place where I check back in, and sometimes need to be reminded to take a step back, relax, savor, appreciate and recharge before chasing the next butterfly.

Video Synopses:
The video is a collection of stock footage that are sequenced and composed around the songs narrative, message and vibe. With different characters, scenarios, and themes. But always with the reminder to keep dancing through life., no matter who or where you are.

Performance Description:
