about

Sotr wrote the songs...the amazing artists on this project sung and played the instruments. And to be clear only basic chord changes and words were given. These songs are completely theirs. What an amazing community of musicians the Cedar Valley has.

More about the artists involved:

Audrey Robinson is an accomplished solo artist and is the front woman in the band Audrey Robinson and The Straight White Whales (formerly Peas and Carrot)

Graham Howland is the bass player in SIRES, a Des Moines based band signed to Station 1 Records. He's a musical savant :)

Emily Otis is another solo / band artist. She is currently in the band Kitsch for the time being before she moves to the West Coast to pursue not being here

Jonny Dexter is in the band Dishwater Blonde. He plays a mean guitar solo and has played drums in previous bands.

Nichole Young is a folk star. She's a solo artist that brings a guitar and banjo to her performances.

Google these artists and look into their other projects. It'll be worth the hunt.

Track Name: I'll Be Okay (Audrey Robinson)
Sometimes its hard to find the meaning
Oh the reason to carry on
And just when you think that life is giving
It goes and takes it all away

When did hell become everyday
When I think it's my time to go I think of you and say
Don't worry I'll be okay
I've been lost this long what's another day

When today steals from yesterday's feels
Its hard to wanna carry on
And when the moment is always broken
It's time take it all away

When did hell become everyday
When I think it's my time to go I think of you and say
Don't worry I'll be okay
I've been lost this long what's another day
Track Name: Bird On A Window Sill (Graham Howland)
I see a bird on a window sill
I wonder if its flown over Capital Hill
Or maybe its European, sight seeing, or maybe its flown away
To escape another day
I see the sunlight on my skin
I wonder if its brightened other men or maybe its
Warmed the heart of a child trying to forget life for awhile
I see the bird
I see the sun
I see a child on the run
While the world keeps on turning I hope you find someone

The big blue sky is too hard to find
But I know the reason why
If we fly
If we feel
If we try to heal
While the world keeps on turning I hope you find what's real
While the world keeps on turning I hope you find what's real
Track Name: Wrong (Emily Otis)
Look past the hills and saw the beyond
A glimpse of my future or maybe I was wrong
Cuz what I saw was a face with a smile
And this face hasn't seen one of those in awhile

Where oh where did I go
Where oh where did I go

Now I'm here sitting in this chair
Writing a song you'll never hear
And the only time it ever comes clear
Is when I know those hills over there aint real

Where oh where did I go
Where oh where did I go

Now I don't know if I'll ever be
Happy as the grass I cannot see
And maybe I'll move on and live comfortably
Or maybe this chair is where I'll always be

Where oh where did I go
Where oh where did I go
Where oh where did I go
Where oh where did I go
Where oh where did I go
Where oh where did I go
Track Name: You're Beautiful (Jonny Dexter)
You're beautiful you got a pretty face too
There's something about the inside of you
It's your smile it's not your clothes
Oh I wish you knew what everybody knows
You're beautiful the way you are
If you're going to leave me here don't go too far
When you talk your lips don't move
I can tell by your eyes you got nothing to lose
You're beautiful the way you are
If you're going to leave me here don't you go too far

All alone in room write a song sing a tune
About how you are so beautiful to me
I won't tell you how I feel
Don't wanna change what we have here
Cuz you are so beautiful to me

One of these days I'm gonna free these chains
And tell you exactly how I feel
And If I do reveal the deepest part I conceal
I hope you'll feel the same way I do

Cuz you're beautiful oh so beautiful
Oh you're beautiful beautiful to me
You're beautiful you should know you are beautiful
You're beautiful to me
Track Name: Tragedy Beamed (Nichole Young)
We watch tragedy beamed from satellite streams
The world screams with internet memes
It seems so ridiculous to me but that's the world we live in now
I don't know if it's yours or if it's mine
But whoever's God is in charge this time
Needs to stop all this hate
I don't know where we are going
I don't know if we can
But I know if we don't try
We won't find the other side of this dark sky
And I close these eyes
And hope, I hope you'll try

We avoid eye contact at the sight of a man
Cuz we don't like his cardboard retirement plan
We fire our missiles whereever we can
I don't see how this helps anything
Little boy blue and little girl too
I'm sorry how we left this world to you
Maybe you can change what we couldn't do
Maybe you can be what I wanted to
