The song Home by Karthartic is an amalgam of different sections of a musicians life, (1) Years ago, I toured with a band, 5 nights a week, 4-5 Brackets a night, we traveled sometimes for 6-9 months at a time, for 4-5 years. I loved the playing, and liked the travel at the time, but you lost all contact with friends, relatives and any concept of a “Normal Life”. (2) After my marriage separation lamented the loss of “home”, not my ex or even the relationship, but the constant contact with my daughter, the friends and extended family, even the family pets, after a while I realized what I missed most was the sense of belonging, and that I would need to find a new “Home”, a new place of connection.
If you have ever traveled for work or career, as musician or traveling salesperson, almost anyone who has traveled or been away for an extended period to hopefully identify with the lyric.
PS With the departure of Trevor, this song is Peter first lead vocal.
