A performer I have loved for years, Daphne Willis, was also at the 30A Songwriters Festival last month, and (as always) was super excited to check out her show.
If you haven’t had a chance to check out her music, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? She is a brilliant songwriter, puts on a great show, and is a nice person to boot. Her new album, Freaks Like Me, is out now.
My favorite song of hers might be Stay or Done with Being Done or TMI or… OH MAN I COULD DO THIS ALL DAY. In the meantime, check out Somebody’s Someone. It is a beautiful ballad dedicated to, “anyone and everyone who knows addiction, mental illness, homelessness or all of the above. Be strong and use your local resources.”
