I was in my studio noodling on my electric guitar. The amp was rich with texture and harmonic overtones as I laid out an arpeggio (single notes in sequence) from string to string. The walkdown was impressive in my mind and filled the room and my soul with emotion. Something was growing as the beauty of the notes unfolded. I could feel the start of a song coming to me once again.
The placement of an emotionally packed melody and sincere lyrics soon took shape as I felt more and more passionately that this was a song about power of finding someone special, the power human love, of tenderness, and commitment.
To Be Loved took several years to get into the studio but finally made its way into the hearts of people all over the world and is now yours to enjoy. It's a timeless song that causes people to simply stop whatever they are doing to just listen, be, and feel the power of human love. Enjoy.
