Somebody's Story

"Don't forget - no one else sees the world the way you do, so no one else can tell the stories that you have to tell"

Charles de Lint

About the project

 

I began Somebody's Story as a way to tell other people's stories through my songs. It started with a YouTube video asking people to send me their true stories, and ended with my third EP - a collection of four songs, each based on a different story.

 

The stories I was sent are incredible, moving, wonderful glimpses of people's lives across different continents and decades and are so much more powerful than I ever expected when the project began.

On this page, you can listen to the songs I recorded and read the stories that inspired them. Please share the ones you like and help spread the word about the project!
