Back before I did the massive self-preservation move of deleting my Twitter account and my 900 or so followers (which seemed fairly massive at the time), it did provide me with many of items of interest amidst the toxic sludge, but the latter became too much to sift through.
However, the platform indirectly introduced me to a young singer-songwriter who had been discovered by Hey Rosetta! leader, Tim Baker. Aley Waterman and crew recorded this beautiful video of her song “Little Fires” in a hotel lobby in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador in 2011 and she included the song on the Young Hymns EP she released as the act, GALA, in 2013. I purchased it from the GALA Bandcamp page, but I haven’t seen anything released by her or that project since.
Now you know a little about why this is my song of the day for today. Enjoy. And if you like the music, please support the artist, and buy it.
