Song of the Day: Ben Shive


It’s tempting to continue our recent trend of science-fiction inspired Songs of the Day, but I’ll spare you by refusing to mention that this song both refers to outer space in the first line and features an astral body as its primary metaphor. Just ignore all that and listen to how awesome the Shive is.

The song’s called “She Is The Rising Sun” and Ben wrote it about a girl. It’s his way of saying she’s hot.

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.
