Hello out there! Happy New Year! The year is already five days old, but this is the first Everest track of 2015, so I'm still coasting on the optimism and good times of what has always been my favorite holiday. I know a lot of you must be groaning, because every year I come on this blog and sing and write and pontificate about how great the new year is because it represents renewal, and second chances, and the importance of our brief light in the ever progressing march of time and on and on and yadda yadda yadda. Well this year is no different, and since this going to be a big year for me, I'm kicking it off with a fun little number that is meant to herald the year to come, and to take stock of its fleeting moments as precious commodities to be held and cherished. Wherever this song finds you out there, and whatever shape your life is taking, I wish you a new year worth holding on to.


On the morning that I woke up
Convinced that this would be the year
Come on, what a notion
Little whispers in my ear

Light and radiant on the highway
I never realized what it meant
Come on, what a notion
That every second lived is spent
So come on

Burning down the country fire
And knowing for a fact this moment's real
Come on, what a notion
So many moments we could steal
So come on


released January 5, 2015
