Keys Awaiting chronicles the Journey of Ryan and C’Quil to Gus’s Music Box on Vashon Island where we had our first demo session. Ryan came armed with the opening lyric line and shared it with us on day one. C’Quil woke up in the middle of the night that night after three a.m. and finished it off within the hour.
Keys Awaiting reflects the instant friendship and brotherly love that this project created. It starts gently with Ryan’s opening. Gus follows with his soulful story-telling about a lonely keyboard awaiting its master, and their harmonies soar as it climaxes at the end while Ernie delivers on percussion throughout.
