About the song
‘’Me Oh My’ is a song written by my friend and longtime collaborator, Ron Yamauchi and recorded by us for my last album ‘no static.’ Here’s what Ron has to say about the meaning behind the song…
“It’s about thinking about difficulty in one’s past – sacrifices others made for you included – and feeling grateful. I wrote the after my first family reunion with my birth family.”
When we recorded this song I knew about the meaning of the song for Ron and I was on the cusp of huge life changes myself. I can hear the intensity of the emotion I was feeling at the time in my vocal performance. I was hopeful and fierce that the shifts and changes I was following in my life would bring me peace and love.
About the video
Walking as life metaphor – I filmed my city wanderings in Vancouver last year. You see my feet walking through different cityscapes and also reflected and refracted views of the wet city through the windows of city buses and the Skytrain. The video is a love letter to Vancouver, the city I have loved for decades. Filmed over 3 seasons in 2020, it captures my city wanderings just before and during the pandemic. Walking became a meditation on how to stay connected to the world around me during the pandemic and this video reflects that.
