“This song is about dwelling within your own fear and paranoia. Ultimately, by the end of the track, we’ve symbiotically come to terms with this paranoia without trying to see past it. Ed Shiers nailed it with his narrative in the video, perfectly tapping into the relentlessly frenetic pace of the music.” – Ben Cohen, frontman of Convey
Who: From Northeast Ohio, musician Aaron Troyer has picked up a guitar and embarked on a journey known as The Blue Winter.
What: There’s a quiet dignity and intelligence in his latest track, “Poor Man”.
Why: Not only does “Poor Man” have the kind of melody that’ll keep you warm all winter long, it also makes you think about the more important things in life.
“‘Poor Man’ is a song about realizations. As I got older certain things sort of pronounced themselves as truths in my life that I had never considered. Poor Man is, in a sense, about working through and coming to terms with some of those thoughts.” – Aaron Troyer, The Blue Winter
