‘Go the Distance’

By David Johnson

"This song is one I've been arranging for a concert this upcoming December. It's a song that has an obvious theme of resilience lyrically, but, ironically, that resilience has been a real challenge to communicate musically for me. I've dressed up the melody in a dozen different ways, and while the final version I ended up with turned out a lot differently than this recording did, this version has all of the most important parts: an honest voice, pious chords, and an earnestness of intention. I won't pretend this is my masterpiece, but this will always be a special little recording to me, and a good time capsule to mark the hours I've spent with it."
