It has been more than a half decade since introspective balladeer Robert Deeble has had new songs to play for a live audience. What has he been doing in that time? Well, working on living a good life, mainly, which includes getting his masters in psychology and becoming a foster parent. He was also working on songs, many of which show up on his fifth full-length, and first in six years, Heart Like Feathers. Deeble talked about all of this, as well as his foray into painting, in this episode of The Song Show, recorded March 8, 2012, at the Rendezvous in Seattle.
Enjoy the episode and, if you like it, subscribe. If you really like it, come down to the next live show, Thursday, June 7, at the Rendezvous, when Throw Me the Statue, Kelli Schaefer and Jose Bold will take the stage, answer my questions and play their songs.
…and for those who missed it, here is video of Deeble performing “The Colors of Dying” that we recorded prior to the show.
