The music of Paul Edelman and his group Jangling Sparrows has brought many of his fans and followers joy over the years. Growing and changing with the times, it has been a lens in which we see the world around us in the light of truth, through his imaginative and insightful verses, we find ourselves.
With the release of the latest single “The Feather & The Well”, we are once again given an opportunity to learn and grow, become more than what we were, and come closer to what we should be.
In commentary, Paul says “This song is about two people, a couple, that can’t work it out. But more broadly, it is about how when relationships get difficult, we seclude ourselves behind old, outmoded thinking.
Thoughts that don’t work anymore but they always kept us safe before so we go to them because they are familiar. It’s all we know until we can shed that old skin. But people too often default to self-protection over self-advancement without even realizing it. At the songs crescendo one of them realizes it. Whether or not it’s too late is up to the listener and their personal experience”
In a song that is serene, with a voice of soften timber, there is in disguise the sorrow of heartbreak, two people who cannot face the truth of their feelings, and feign love in a relationship that lost faith in itself a long, long time ago. The rose-colored glasses have fallen and shattered, revealing eyes seemingly sewn shut. A sad love song, but not of what could be, but of what could never be.
Coming only a short time after the release of the official video for his hit track Joshua Chamberlain, which has already garnered much praise in the Independent Music Scene,
Paul Edelman is fast placing himself into the hearts of a global fanbase, looking for a life worth living, and Paul is working to supply the soundtrack.
