This song was sort of a last minute edition, but a lot of folks have told me they like it. Joshua Abrams played upright bass on it which was super cool. Dan Smart came in and played keys, which was a great connection because I'll be recording new material at his studio come February 2013.

I like the idea of searching a wilderness and being lead out by someone who cares about you.


Wilderness calls me out, back into the jungle, in a tangle of vine
Draw me a line, straight and true, I follow it out, back to you
As long as it leads me, back to you
Now meet me in the valley, where the water is still
Meet me in the valley, when I'm called by wilderness

Takes all kinds, to make this world
You got to be kind, kind in your mind
So gather strength, where I can, I find it in the cracks, the crevices
The warmth of your hand
As long as it leads me back to you

Can you meet me in the valley, where our thoughts'll be still
And I can walk with you
Keep on walking through
I'll see you in that valley, free of the nights in wilderness

Dark, dreamy, soulful rock-and-roll, spearheaded by Louisiana born, Chicago-resident Justin Jahnke, Midnight On Pearl Beach is Justin's take on psychedelic rock, trippy folk, and poppy rhythm and blues.
