Patrick J Hart – Life is for Living
Life is for living was written a few years ago when I was in a reflective period and writing about my life. I took various influences growing up and put them together in a way that felt right. I’m playing everything on my songs except the drums. This song appears on my debut album, Mind Archeology, which I guess is as the title suggests, a delve into the corners of my mind. Life Is For Living is really about experiences I’ve had so far. The way, as you get older things change and you go back and remember things differently. Quite often things seem better the way they were. It’s about living in the moment but respecting the things that brought you to where you are today. It’s about my mortality and the hope that I may have done some things that will be remembered positively. It also references growing up in a relationship that shaped you into the person you are and for the better, perhaps with some regret that I could have done some things better. Ultimately though when I check out I’ll have done it right, and have missed or regretted nothing important to me.

Their latest offering, ‘Forgotten’, is a pop / rock track that combines a powerful, catchy vocal from Julia with a heavy, layered guitar sound.
