I was asked to write a song to release in conjunction with a novel by Victoria Rowell, who was a star on The Young and the Restless and who I had met when she emceed the first New Works concert. It ended up being a sort of weird love song from the point of view of a dedicated soap opera fanatic.


I've shared my room with you day after day in winter sping and fall
On my screen and in fragrant magazines I watch you live a life I could never survive
You shape my world and give me something to hold as friends pass on
As my hair thins and as the world gets gloomy and grim
I still have my precious hour with you

Calista pull on my heartstrings
Love in the afternoon
I don't need cables to see you
The signal spreads and mingles all through the air

And when you fade into darkness
When weekends leave me bare
I know around will come Monday
I'll catch the signal spinning out in the air

You're miles away but when I lay on the floor you're right beside
My life fades in the glow of the cathode rays supine in the warm embrace of your light

And may your market share be high
May your writers never let you die
I hope that you grow old with me inside of my screen
And if the network should go bust
If all the TVs rot and rust
I will try to battle on without your love in the afternoon


from Fifteen Fires in the Filament Eve, released March 3, 2013

Peter Adams Cincinnati, Ohio

I've been writing and recording music since 2004.

In that time I've released four albums. I typically record all the parts myself, and combine acoustic recordings with digital and analogue instruments and processing.

Over the years I've worked in Philadelphia, Chicago, and Cincinnati, where I currently reside.
