Bob Kerr on “Walks of Life Collaborations”
It’s so good to hear these songs - so genuine and drawn from so many different voices. The Same Thing Project seems to show people that they can do something they might not have thought they could - make music. It’s just a matter of ideas and language and the ability to open up to different points of view. And, of course, a few people with guitars. It’s fun, but it’s also reaffirming. There’s a community in that room. Connections are made around the silly and the sublime and sometimes things right outside the door. There’s clearly respect for the simple, honest process of throwing thoughts and ideas and bits and pieces of living into the mix and seeing and hearing it all come together in a song. My favorite is that one about the blueberry pie.
