Raining in the Desert

This little ditty is called "Raining in the Desert" - The idea for this song actually started taking shape years ago, as some songs tend to do.

I remember being on tour and riding through the desert somewhere looking out of the window and wondering what it would be like if it just suddenly started raining. Hmm... sure would have been a strange contrast to what I was seeing at the time with the all the cactus and sandy terrain.

Bam. Song idea. Only took me about 15 years to do something with it!

Yes it's about raining in the desert "the cactus plants are smiling and the ground begins to smile...." but it's actually a metaphor about hope and how a troubled inner city youth finds solace in the rain. 

Hope you like it. I recorded it at my studio in New orleans and played all instruments. My friend Jack Miele mixed it at my studio a few days later. Video was shot by Rick Gadd.
