‘Spot light on a Song’

What seems like a very long week actually sped by with a blink of an eye! With fall air (although incredible weather we’ve been graced with!) and the start of school, it’s been busy. I was happy to awake to Friday, my pending camping trip, and my special song for this week.

When I first heart this song making dinner back in 1999, I’d say the earth moved from beneath my feet. And without hesitation, my most favorite band of all time. Hands down. Still, 15 years later.

Fran Healy. Travis. A British alternative rock band formed in Glasgow, Scotland in 1990. Credited for having paved the way for bands such as Coldplay and Keane.

The band has has released 7 studio albums: everyone is good. Each one worth many listens. Good Feeling (1997), The Man Who (1999), The Invisible Band (2001), 12 Memories (2003), The Boy With No Name (2007), Ode To J. Smith (2008) and Where You Stand (2013).

I was lucky to meet and talk to Fran on one of his solo tours to Chicago back in 2010. Facebook won’t let me post this video and the photo I have of the monumental meeting, but it was an impressionable moment.

Enjoy Driftwood……I still do each and every time.

Strum a little….
