Day 206: Demons, Robert Vincent

I had the privilege of seeing Paul Kelly playing in a small pub in the northern quarter of Manchester. I took my daughter Grace to the concert and when we arrived I sat down in the serving area and got myself and Grace a drink. We started talking to a guy and his girlfriend who were sitting on the other side of the bar and it transpired the guy we were talking to was Robert Vincent. He was the support act for Paul Kelly that night and this was one of the songs he played in his set. It is a fantastic song and I hope one day he gets the recognition he deserves given his immense musical talent.

The other thing I love about this song is it captures something that I think many people go through in life and that is facing the realities of their own brokenness in whatever form that takes. Certainly over the years I have suffered from a chronic stress disorder so this is a personal demon of mine that I continue to battle with day by day.
