Our Song of the Day comes from Sam Moss, a musician who lives in Boston although, since 2014, he has been regularly on tour building his fan base by performing in pubs, galleries, abandoned silos, living rooms, and the Newport Folk Festival. Neon is his latest single and the title track of his forthcoming album set for release in March 2018. He’s certainly a name you want to keep on your radar.
Talking about the songs on the new album he explained: “I wrote many of them in and around Somerville, Massachusetts, where I live, and some in further away places, where I was out, looking back toward home. They come from the sensation of home. The feeling of rootedness. I eventually took them to friends who each gave them something more. Justine Bowe (Photocomfort), Benjamin Burns (Honeysuckle), Daniel Radin (The Novel Ideas), Michael Siegel, and Rachel Sumner (Twisted Pine). Thanks to them these songs have been turned into something entirely different. I find joy in them. Some might qualify as ‘sad’ songs but I do not hear them that way. I hope they offer a spectrum of feeling. I hope they give off a small amount of light. There are already many ways to spend a half hour and putting on ‘Neon’ is yet another. I invite you to try it if you want to.”
