Creative Brief

I wrote this song when I was living in the US (Arizona of course) and working in the tech industry. Not the glamorous Facebook / Google / Tesla tech industry, but rather a dull grey company you've never heard of, who nevertheless makes several components in every piece of consumer electronics you use.

In those days, I travelled a lot, domestically and internationally. I was struck by how there were so many people (like me) who were working stiffs maybe with good salaries, but with wrecked lives, suffering in silence, frequenting the airport lounges and bars, sleeping awkwardly in their business class (or more likely, as in my case, economy) seats, eventually getting home to their families, who they barely knew, only to repack their rolling carry-on on a Sunday night to start all over again.

Pre-COVID there must've been a whole city's worth of men (they were not exclusively, but mainly, men) on the road at any given time. What a bizarre aspect of our capitalist culture...

Anyway, *obviously* the vocals suck, but I like the chord progression and the lyrics. Would love to have someone with a decent voice have a crack at it, but also very open to anyone who wants to have a go at creating an alternative arrangement with whatever instrumentation you can up with.

Honoured and grateful for anyone who participates.

Cheers

Niall
