"George Sarah asked me to come up with a lyric and vocal for a piece of music that he had written and recorded. At the time I had been watching old films of the late great Spalding Gray and so the subject was on my mind.
Holly Palmer sang backing vocals.
In 2005, we performed the song live as part of the 'Grand Performance' concert in downtown LA."
