Robyn Cage – The River
I met Robyn Cage several summers ago, when she was still living in New York City. At one point, the incredibly talented singer/songwriter moved back to Utah, where she’s still at. Robyn made herself a name with her glorious covers, most notably with Metallica’s “Nothing Else Matters.” On Friday though, she released a new original, “The River,” one that showcases her precious gift: fabulous vocals, catchy harmonies and poetic lyrics.
Robyn provides us with a glimpse into her life and explains how “The River” evolved. She says:
After my marriage ended, I went to the desert to write, feel, and begin to heal. I wrote this song sitting by the edge of a river in a red rock canyon, noticing all the layers in the stone carved by the water over millions of years. Love carves and shapes and changes us in beautiful ways, and I felt grateful for my love, even though it ended sadly. This song is meant to capture the poetry and the beauty of heartbreak.
“The River” is one of my favorite songs I’ve ever written. It means so much to me, and I hope you feel something when you listen.
I hope Robyn’s other magnificent songs don’t get jealous when I tend to agree? Besides, isn’t it a very good thing when an artist gets better and better the more time goes by? Find out for yourself and listen to “The River,” our Song Pick of the Day:
