Under the Stars by Pierre James

Austin’s Pierre James has a whimsical voice that is poetically appealing. I like the comparison with the notable vocalist of the Weakerthans, John K. Samson. There is a beautiful melodic pattern that rolls in and out, like waves on a shore.

James shares the rationale of the track by saying, “With all the commotion of our day to day, city lives, only in the country do we find the solace and honesty that connects us to our roots.” There is something really humble in that statement, an honesty that is nice to hear.

The instrumentation in the track stands out, it’s simple, a light balance of guitar and percussion with a hint of strings near the end to add some flair. Fantastic.

This song explores that connection I felt over a long weekend under the stars in rural Texas.
