In Their Words: “‘Sunset Blues’ is the title song of my debut album, featuring seven songs that all deal — in one way or another — with fatherhood. This song in particular means a lot to me; it records the moment my girlfriend tells me she is pregnant with our daughter. As a scholar of English literature who is particularly fascinated with the Modernist movement of the 1920s, I took a lot of inspiration for the lyrics of this song from Ernest Hemingway’s writing, who was always urging himself and everyone who was willing to hear it that we have to get as close to the truth as possible, without resorting to poetry or imagery as a means of obscuring the essence of our experience. I am absolutely stoked to have the video for ‘Sunset Blues’ featured on The Bluegrass Situation, and hope that the folk and Americana aficionados here will appreciate what I have tried to do. Fun fact: We shot the video at 4 o’clock in the morning in the Amsterdam Forest (Amsterdamse Bos), to capture the best possible atmosphere to accompany the song.” — Paul Bond
