Balm for the soul

Where I Came From

Northern Michigan night, Northern Michigan sky
Never felt so right, never felt so high, and I

Will not forget where I came from
As this tide keeps turning, fire keeps burning

Tonight I followed an impulse to walk the farm
In my underwear guitar in arm, and I

Will not forget where I came from
I’m still my Father’s son (son)

The old familiar feeling of sawdust beneath my feet
The old familiar sight of my mama coming up to meet me
She said, “I just wanted to see you
‘Cause I know that you’ll be gone soon”
“Mom, I won’t really be gone, ‘cause I’ll

Never forget where I came from
I’m still my mother’s son” (son)


From the album

“This music not only swings, rocks, and grooves–it matters. It’s the voice of a real community, with a sound and a message the world needs to hear.”

“I know that the future of music is in good hands with people like Seth around to be its caretaker. More importantly, I know the future of our world is in good hands.”

“The argument for the most influential human in the Michigan music uprising of the past decade may begin and end with one Seth Bernard.”

“Paradigm-shifting and culture healing music as resourcing for next-level human stewards of planet earth.”
