Rainn Byrns – Big
Der Songwriter Rainn Byrns aus dem Süden Londons macht sich Gedanken um sein Leben. In ‚Big‘ sinniert er über seinen Job und wann denn endlich die Zeit seines Lebens kommt. Daraus entstand eine zeitlose kleine Folk Hymne.
“For me” sagt Rainn “the song’s a reality check about how the process of bashing your head against a wall over success, can take you away from being in the moment & enjoying the journey you’re on. The lyric ‘you will never know when you are having the time of your life’ highlights this & ‘I wish I could take my own advice’ is the classic case of being able to give advice that you cannot take yourself. Music has a lot of purposes but this one is getting a fair bit off my chest & airing the frustration I’ve felt in the process of creation & self-comparison – and we all know that comparison is the thief of joy!”
