Paranoia, grief, joy, jealousy — from awkward first encounters to bitter goodbyes, this new song cycle for the skeptical romantic wrestles with what we owe and what we can expect from one another. Remove the mush, add the clever, lean into the fresh: and now you have Open, Stay.
Spanning musical genres woven together masterfully with subtly repeated musical themes, Open, Stay is a collection of ten moments of connection — beginnings, endings and in-betweens, as well as the moments that come long after we part ways. Full of laughter, loss, and lessons learned, it is an exploration of how we love and how we lose one another, all connected by the need that brings us together — the need for each other.
