Our recently launched video series On the Tracks focuses on songs and the stories and writers behind them, showcasing it all on the old, (mostly) abandoned railroad tracks that run behind OPB headquarters. The third installment features Robert Sarazin Blake, who stopped by a while back with Anais Mitchell's guitar and a song that, despite its potentially macabre title, is apt for Thanksgiving week. Here's "Death Comes"...On the Tracks.
Robert Sarazin Blake's been doing some hard travelin'. The Bellingham, WA-based singer-songwriter is a troubadour in the truest sense of the term, fostering a career over the past fifteen years that's seen him log thousands of miles while playing every proverbial nook and cranny around on both sides of the Atlantic. The subjects of his songs often come directly from those travels, but occasionally he finds inspiration closer to home. "Death Comes" is a moving tribute of sorts to his grandfather, a personal reflection that carries a weight to which we can all relate.
