SONG PICK: Hayden Everett – Still (Video)
Diego-based singer/songwriter Hayden Everett released the utterly gorgeous single and video “Still,” taken from his stunning EP Kennecott.
Hayden provides context to his beautifully pensive songwriting and says:
In early college, I worked as a camp counselor just outside of Yosemite National Park. Strangers became my dearest friends in just weeks, and we made it a frequent habit to set out on nearby trails past dark. Walking steadily for hours with just the light of the moon, we’d settle into a rhythm maintained by the sound of our footsteps and an occasional river. We’d lie down, far from the world but closer to it than ever. I can’t help but take a huge breath as I look up at the Milky Way. In this moment I feel alive, and more aware of how precious that is.
“Still” expresses exactly THAT. As a teenager, I also had a similar experience, volunteering at a camp, becoming friends with strangers quickly, being with people surrounded by beautiful nature… With its positive vibe, “Still” is a sweet addition to any playlist.
