What happens when you pair a poet and a thriving singer-songwriter together? You get the marriage of intellect, artistry and a damn good book in your hands.
If & When We Wake is the product of winters and springs. It has been buried under snowpack, thawed, cultivated, scorched by the sun, and buried yet again. The result is a book of poetry and art that shines light on the desperation, helplessness, and loss that everyone feels, and tries to find the beauty of acceptance and growth. It examines the necessity of finding meaning in life after experiencing death.
This collection is an attempt to crack back through the ice and rip out a life that emits a light and a heat. It is the woods. It is the grass poking up between toes and tiny bits of soil underneath fingernails. It is alive, and it will sprout and grow.
If & When We Wake is the poetry and Francis Daulerio and the art of Scott Hutchison. It will be released this coming April through the Unsolicited Press.
We will begin the preorder on March 20, 2015, the first day of Spring. A limited release of SIGNED books will be available to the first 25 buyers. The first set of released books will feature a post script poem written by Daulerio too. We intend to run out of this book. After all Scott's band Frightened Rabbit has way too many followers to count.
