A seemingly simple, repeating piano pattern gradually develops over different backing chords, with subtle organ background. Positive, hopeful and bright, with a somewhat nostalgic feel. Played live on an old, upright piano for a genuine, warm, "imperfect" sound. Happy, uncomplicated and a little bit quirky, but also with real depth, this track is good for commercials, film/drama, PSA / Charity appeals, stories about people and our lives, and more.

Taking a distinctly European approach to his craft, which both recalls and updates influences such as P.J. Harvey, Jacques Brel, David Bowie and Brian Eno’s collaborations.
The BBC Music on "Songs From The White Sea":
"Quiet may have ceased being the new loud, but this demonstrates that Ericson is a welcome addition to the school of soft, reflective troubadours. It is an album that consistently doesn’t do what you think it’s going to, and frequently delights. BBC Music / Music Week Panel
