Can I tell you a secret? Sometimes I tend to overthink things and I need to be reminded of the understated beauty of elegant simplicity. A recent example is our newly released song: "So Nice," which is also the first release from our upcoming album In the Moment. Here is the backstory: Last spring and early summer, Laurie and I were able to resume live performances after the long hiatus occasioned by the pandemic.
