|Brad Colerick - Top Ten Finalist |
Wildflower! Arts & Music Festival
We tend to think of story-songs as being autobiographical in nature, when often the songwriter’s inspiration comes from observing what’s happening around him. When Colerick found himself stranded in Toronto he started the idea for his song, Late Winter Snow, but never finished it because it didn’t really feel like his situation. He shelved the song only to retrieve it later when a friend was going through a divorce. Brad then used the empathy he felt for his friend as inspiration to finish the song.
