Storms are an inevitability of life. 2020 has certainly been a stormy, relentless one, but as singer-songwriter John Calvin Abney advises, it’ll fade away soon enough. With “When This Blows Over,” he irons out the wrinkles of pain and pressure that’s been a trying, terribly unforgiving few months.
“I’ve been making lists / Of the missing and the missed,” he sings. The brunt force of his own story clearly informs his wisdom, weathered and worn, but he never lets it become so engulfing as to drown him. He simply states what’s to be true, and we should cherish that.
