Song of the Day, October 8: You Can Take Me With You by Krystle Warren and the Faculty

KrystleTakeMeToday’s song comes from Krystle Warren’s magical song cycle Love Songs: A Time You May Embrace. The talented singer / songwriter crafted a set of meditations on the beauty and challenges of building a relationship. Recorded live in the studio with her band, the Faculty, and a handful of sympathetic supporters, it’s a stunning achievement.

You Can Take Me With You is a deceptively simple standout. Propelled by Warren’s guitar and jazz-inflected vocal, it’s an exploration of separation. She makes smart observations about the value and pain that come from being apart, offering a touching monologue to the departing partner.

Enjoy this lovely song today, in a charming solo performance.
