The Allegro Sessions: Prayer (On My Darkest Days)

Toward the end of college I was having a crisis of faith. It was not at all helped by Wolfgang Borchert’s brilliantly depressing “Draußen vor der Tür,” in which God makes an appearance as a tired, helpless old man. My doubts and faith were channeled into a musical prayer called, appropriately enough, “Prayer.” I recorded it with guitar and violin on my “From the Hand of” cassette (note to my younger readers: cassettes were how independent musicians released music before Myspace and Bandcamp) and decided to retool it recently for full quartet. We’re still learning it, so it’s a little rough, but I’m already loving the way the strings add depth to the song.
