Feels Like Home
Arizona based Jim Pipkin returns to Alternative Fruit with his fresh Amerciana sound. This time he brings with him Feels Like Home, a song released recently and enjoying lots of radio play around the world. His first taste of the stage was in 1974 with the Union Grove Fiddlers Convention. That must have been a great evening, full of folk sounds and lively banter. Imagine no smartphones to record the performances, no cameras waving in the air, perhaps one or two journalists had an old fashioned lightbulb affair at the time? Since then, Jim Pipkin has written music and performed with many big names in the pop and folk scene. Recently, he played the 34th Annual Tucson Folk Festival which would have been a brilliant occasion.
The song begins with a steel guitar melody. Chords are plucked in jumpy phrases, the progression builds a smooth and shifting landscape of tone. Jim Pipkin begins to sing, his homely American accent combines with the flowing guitar to tell a moving story about travel and the school of life. Drawing the scene for us, various angles of life in the world where we find people of all kinds. Jim Pipkin tips his hat to all of it, and shows us that he cares, then reminds us that his one true love is where he is from.
