Outer Banks

Today seems like an Outer Banks kind of day.   This is the story of a man trying to talk a woman into dropping everything in city life and move to the beach to spend the days in the ocean’s waves and the nights singing songs in the beachfront bars.

Outer Banks

As the hurricane rolls in, today’s song is fitting, I was originally gonna post it as an end of summer song. One of my favorite recordings (because of the classical and electric guitar parts), Outer Banks is a very old song.   I wrote it my freshman year at Appalachian and then re-wrote it for the Carolina Songs album.

It features the MasterPlan, Jason Peeler, Chris Singleton and John Kell and perfectly reflects the conflict of leaving everything behind to move to a quiet place at the beach. Something all of us working folk can relate to.
