Song of the Day: Andrew Osenga


The Photographs album was my first exposure to the ‘other Andrew’ (or would that be the other other Andrew?) and man, I was just blown away. This album has seen so much time in my CD player that it’s finally been rendered unplayable and placed in the frisbee drawer. Never fear, thanks to the goodness of digital media it now lives happily inside my iPod and thanks to the magic of the Rabbit Room Song of the Day, one of my favorite songs off that album, “When Will I Run”, is presented to you right here in all its glory. Cue the music and someone tell Springsteen that he needs to cover this song.


Pete Peterson is the author of the Revolutionary War adventure The Fiddler’s Gun and its sequel Fiddler’s Green. Among the many strange things he’s been in life are the following: U.S Marine air traffic controller, television editor, art teacher and boatwright at the Florida Sheriffs Boys Ranch, and progenitor of the mysterious Budge-Nuzzard. He lives in Nashville with his wife, Jennifer, where he's the Executive Director of the Rabbit Room and Managing Editor of Rabbit Room Press.

    Amazing song. I’ve played this album to death. A friend I know likes to categorize all music as “day” music and “night” music. Andrew deals with that idea in the arrangement of his tracks on The Morning, actually. This album is almost all “night” music for me. I think this track may be the highlight of the record.

    Love it. It has a bit of Mark Knopfler in not just the guitar but the overall warmth of the chords and the song itself. Great stuff.

    Jacobt – My thoughts exactly. I has a definite Dire Straits/Mark Knopfler tone to it. Andy is a great songwriter. He is becoming one of my favorites.

    Thanks Pete…this song was perfect for this afternoon.

    I’m Lovin’ it !! Has abit of a Vigilantes of Love / Bill Malonee vibe about it , yet stands on its own with beauty and integrity. I need to get a copy of this cd. Thanks for putting it up Pete!!
