Maybe [single]

The Blueflowers is one of my favorite Detroit bands and their song, "Maybe" is a moving and sincere piece. For that reason, I wanted to take on the challenge of covering it. One late night, I sat down with my laptop and microphone and got to work. My friend Drew Schultz laid down the drums and percussion and did a fine job. It all came together quickly. That's how inspired I was feeling. In the end, I had trouble deciding if I wanted to release the studio version or the stripped down, all acoustic version. I decided to release both!

This was an awesome experience. I hope you enjoy listening to my interpretation as much as I did creating it.
