Recently, I went through a bit of an Alan Watts obsession. He got me thinking about the self, the ego and all that good stuff. A lot of these ideas spilled out into a song called "Puzzle Box". The finished song will be on my new album "Outlines" which is coming this September. For now though, for a taste and a tease, I thought it would be fun to give you a glimpse of the song in raw form. These things rarely spring out fully formed and ready to race up the charts you know! 😉 Usually I find they take a bit of coaxing, a bit of playing hard-to-get, and a measure of good old fashioned toil.
I think this one started with the expression "Join the dots"... I thought that would be a cool line for a song, and it all grew from there. I'm pretty sure my good musical friend Brian Murphy had some kind of hand in the "Puzzle Box" image / idea. He's good like that.
