about

Written on the shores of the Florida / Alabama Gulf Coast, Anderson’s sophomore concept EP paints a tender portrait of anticipation, family, and creative soul-searching. Weaving poignant melodies with delicate imagery and rich, playful cello harmonies, all roads point to the sea, where “you will find yourself home, coasting.”

Track Name: You Will
Months til May will bring you, babe
We’ve weeks until we meet
So let us sing this song for you
To hold until we’re we.
Will you laugh and will you cry,
Will you kick and crawl?
We will seek and you will hide
And you shall have it all.
Will your face light each space like a lighthouse at sea will you
dance with the grace of the stars
Sleep may escape us indefinitely but you
definitely will be ours, oh you will
Will you pounce and will you play
Will you sing and stand
While birds and bees and summer breezes
Hold your wholesome hands.
We’ll compare all our gray hairs
While we wait for you
We won’t miss it when our kisses
Were just among us two, ‘cause
we left room for you.
Will your wellness be wished for
by all who we know
Will you love, will you crush, will you lust
Will your choices do well,
will you right all your wrongs will you
grow to be better than us? Oh, you will.
Months til May will bring you, babe
Come what may, we’ll grow you
We will will you all we have, and we
haven't much, but we haven’t long
until we know you.
Track Name: Find Yourself
There’s a girl on the edge of the world between the sky and the sea. She
sings a little blues cuz she’s waiting for her muse to come and set her spirit free.
She holding to her truth, and she’s folding up her youth because she knows where she’s from.
She’s feeling the earth stir, feeling the ground start to hummm.
Let the sea muse say
You will find you, you will find yourself
On the edge of faraway, on the edge of faraway
You will find you, you will find yourself (yeah).
A stack of ragged seeds laying scattered on the street by side of the road
Living on the land and they’re thrown from a hand that didn’t know they would grow.
Thriving in the cold, and the roots taking hold in the strength of the sun
They’re holding the water, feeling their hearts start to strum.
There you’re breathing, there you’re holding your own,
All the pieces complete and you are whole.
Track Name: Home
You wish it would snow
And I wish we could go and feel the ocean waves upon our silly faces.
I’m afraid of the dark G
And you hold back the sharks under the bed, hold up the spread above our foolish heads.
We’ll build a fort out of what we have
If you hold the sword, I will wear the cape and the mask
together we’ll play house.
You will summon the rain
And I will turn the hurricane to frosted flakes
To sate our hungry hearts.
We’ll build a castle of frozen sand,
I’ll float your boat in the moat if you will stand upon the bow,
Together we’ll play house.
This is our home.
