What is there to do when it just keeps snowing? Write a song about Spring, of course!
Even though I’ve been living on the West Coast for the past few years, I am still not completely adjusted to sunny, warm winters (though I’m not complaining either). When I hear from friends and family on the other coast that it is snowing AGAIN, I feel as though I am on another planet. As a former snow bunny, I can sympathize, though I do miss the beauty of the falling snow and monster-sized snowflakes.
Karen Kalafatas of Karen K & the Jitterbugs has a different take on the allure of a freshly painted powedery landscape, especially after being stuck inside for the last 4 months. But her spirits are up and her creative juices are flowing!
Today’s audio premiere, “Spring Day,” is an anti-snow, pro-sun anthem eager to welcome Spring and hang outside with a cool glass of ANYTHING!
Stay tuned for the video for “Spring Day,” though Kalafatas explains that they will need a few Springtime shots for that. Says Kalafatas, “So basically August. August is when we’ll get the Spring shots.”
