Is there a wilder life than parenthood? Not in my experience. Inexpressible highs, devastating lows, anxiety, anticipation, and so much more. As parents we have felt it all.
Longtime singer/songwriter and first time Dad, Justin Roberts releases his new album at the end of this month. In it he sings like a lullaby to us all, of anticipation and wonder and hopes and dreams. As I listened I felt these were many of the same words and sentiments my own father has passed down to me. I hope I have also shared the same tenderness and optimism with my own children. I loved the visual of Heart Like a Door, (which you can hear here) and the sentiment of Glad You’re Here, most of all. Glad You’re Here is the next single to be released, just in time for Valentine’s Day.
This is the 15th album for this 3-time Grammy Nominee. Certainly now that he is living this wild life he’ll have plenty of fodder for future albums as well. If we’re lucky, his music will carry us through and outlive our own journeys in parenting.
