Sam Phillips- World on Sticks

(click song title above to listen)

Bring the distance closer
I can take the space
I see time all at once when I look at the face
of our world on sticks
so brave, so small
I’m ready for the works so let’s have it all

“World on Sticks” was recorded in an old Charlie Chaplin-era bungalow near downtown Los Angeles during sessions for a new Sam Phillips album slated to be released later this year. This beauty of a song is the lead-off track on a mini-album to help keep us happy in the meantime very aptly titled Human Contact is Never Easy. The set was produced by Sam and mastered by Grammy winner Mike Piersante (Raising Sand, Oh Brother Where Art Thou). The tune is driven by percussion from longtime collaborator and drummer Jay Bellerose (also a co-writer on this tune), with Jennifer Condos on bass. On her lyrics Sam says “I was thinking about humans and how brave they can be under the most impossible circumstances. Our civilization feels fragile right now, like we are on the high wire without a net.”

Netflix debuted all four 90-minute episodes of the Gilmore Girls revival: A Year in the Life at 12:01AM November 26th to huge success! The revival features Sam’s signature La la’s and a now famous climatic dance featuring “Reflecting Light” among other treats. Read how Sam tackled the score and shaped the sound of Stars Hollow HERE.

Gaby Moreno‘s Ilusión represents a high-water mark in a musical career that’s never been predictable. It’s one of the strongest statements I’ve heard from a musician who ignores boundaries and genre classifications to create a sound greater than the sum of its parts.” – Felix Contreras, NPR Music

This week we had to spotlight Gaby‘s stunning Spanish language cover of Sam Phillips“Sister Rosetta Goes Before Us” from her recently Grammy-nominated fifth album Ilusión.

Gaby has been one of our favorite singers in L.A. and beyond for some time now. Equal parts jazz singer, blues singer, and Latin American Folk poet, her performances never fail to inspire.
