Today I’m introducing you to Benja Schick and the project Local Color. Benjamin lives in Nashville and has been playing music professionally since the age of 14. Benja is originally a drummer and works with many things in the record industry.
The track A Gentle Pull Towards Better Things was released on the album The Sacred Birth which came out on the 8th of September, 2023.
Tell us something about your track A Gentle Pull Towards Better Things!
This composition fits into the story of my album as a turning point for the character (or listener). The album tells a dynamic story of love, self discovery, loss, and grief. In the grieving there finally comes a desire to pull oneself up and slowly pursue hope, joy, and a new future. I wanted this song to encapsulate that feeling, the feeling of a soft “pull” towards better life after loss. I wrote this in 2020 and recorded it last Fall in the basement studio of my old house in Virginia.
Thank you for this Benja!
