Live Webcast from Southern Appalachian Brewery

Tonight (November 21st, 2014) at 8pm, we are broadcasting our show at Southern Appalachian Brewery in Hendersonville NC live on Concert Window.

You are invited to tune in! We'll be taking your song requests. It would be so lovely to have you be part of this event. Tickets are just $1 (or more if you like, since it's pay-what-you-like).

How about gathering some friends at your home and enjoying a great evening, with live music entertainment until approximately 10pm?

Thanks for being who you are

Sea Of The Unwritten (Song Performance and Lyrics)

Far beyond the sundown
With the eyes upon the wind
May you change the world
That you're living in

Can you see a bigger picture
Year after year
Shall we walk through the garden
With no more fear

All the prophets they all tell us
Words to memorize
When red turns to grey
And yellow turns to white

To hear without hearing
Something better this way comes
There's so many voices
But their words are not clear

For an artist she must paint
Like a bird she must fly
There are no future worries
By and by
If you cut your own wood
It warms you twice
There's more than meets the eye
On the sea of the unwritten

Did we become more daring
Is there something in the air?
Let's change the course of history,
All exits lead somewhere

All the stands have not been taken,
Moving forward in a rhyme
May you drift softly
Like passing ships in the night

Every sinner has a future,
Every saint has a past
It's less about the ending
And more about the path


Song written by Chris Wilhelm and Cristof Ensslin, published by The Wilhelm Brothers LLC
