TUNE Dean Owens - 10 Sally's Song (I Dreamed of Michael Marra)
This song came to me in a dream around around the time that Scottish singer-songwriter Michael Marra passed away. In the dream Michael was sitting at the piano singing a song and this was the melody he was singing. There were no words I could remember apart from ‘it’ll all work out’ and the name Sally stuck in my head for some reason. Around that time I’d gone for a wander through the old neighbourhood where I grew up. There was a housing scheme [project] called The Fort that had been my playground. It had recently been knocked down. Some of the characters from my childhood make an appearance in this song.
From Into the Sea CD, released on Drumfire Records 11 May 2015. Recorded in Nashville with producer Neilson Hubbard
