about

/// SAM001 ///

In April 2020, weeks into the coronavirus pandemic, theJLM wrote some lyrics and decided to share them with a group of friends, inviting them to each write their own separate song to go with the words. The result is this collection of songs. These are not covers or even really "versions" of the same song. Each one is a unique creation, composed on its own, separate from the others. The songwriters only got as much background or other info on the lyrics as they requested.

/// BENEFITING WORKSHOP HOUSTON / THE BEAT SHOP ///

100% of proceeds from this release will support The Beat Shop, a music production program at Workshop Houston, which serves youths in and around Houston’s Third Ward neighborhood.

The Subtle Incline / Nebraska The Long Way
(Lyrics by theJLM)

Darkened clouds all around
Outlined in electric blue
You're Colorado bound
This land, only passing through

Moving through the subtle incline
Hardly tell it's breaking you
Only a matter of time
Just keeping on the move

Far away now
Never here before
The other side
A distant roar

Took time to find a way
Raced down hills to make it up again
Red crept up throughout the day
Still headed where you've never been

Gears grind, but push along
A cabin of promise up ahead
Elevation comes on strong
Head pounds, but not yet dead

Not so far now
Never here before
The other side
Promises more

Crossing Nebraska the long way
Crossing Nebraska the long way
