Everything's Gonna Be Okay
Molly Thomas & The Rare Birds
A COVID-19 2020 recording experience... This was a joint recording effort by each band member. Molly recorded in her home, Blue Print Studio. Rick Hirsch recorded electric guitars in his Studio H2O. John Keuler recorded bass and BG vocals in his home and John Milham recorded drums in his Green Roof Studios in Laurel, MS.
Notes from Molly: This song was written during the COVID-19 lockdown from various conversations with myself taking comfort in the simple fact that in all chaos and seeming defeat, we will all be okay. I don’t intend to discount the many untimely deaths and severe illnesses resulting from this horrible virus. They cannot be ignored as we try to come together to understand. Something to consider throughout all of the world's experience this year is even in death and illness, those of us living must find peace by turning the volume down, resting, protecting each other in distancing, and being with loved ones — even by phone. Perhaps as we reflect on 2020 with gratitude that we were forced to go deeper inside ourselves to meet head-on such impending doom as, suffering, loss, hunger, unemployment, quarantines, hurricanes, fires, anxiety, etc., we may possibly see ourselves in a new light.
One more thing... I'd like to give a big THANK YOU to all of the health care-workers who have worked so diligently throughout this time. We pay homage to YOU!
Peace & Love, Molly
