Jessie Che – In My Hands (Mp3)
I wrote this song on New Years Day, 2022. I’d just logged off from a live stream by two amazing songwriters I admire so much Gretchen Peters & Mary Gauthier. I’d only days before finished Mary’s book “Saved By a Song” (a truly great read if you love books) it’s about her journey to sobriety through songs.
I was mesmerised watching how these women seemed to be their true selves with their music, and it made me think about how much music (and my guitar) had put me back together, stronger after life experiences that had broken my heart and brought me to my knees. So, I decided to write a gratitude song to my guitar and reflected on how music helps people be their best selves.
