PRESS RELEASE:

The Ram’s new single “Everything” is scheduled to be out on June 7, 2024 on all streaming platforms.

Our ability to find beauty in the world around us is a gift. It’s the very definition of art, and at the core of thinking that translates tragedy, pain, and loss into something that helps us grow. “Everything” is a nod to this gift, written for those who see riches where others would only see nothing and the creator in every single one of us.

ABOUT THIS SONG:

The title track of the Ram’s new album “Everything” was written close to his family home, in the suburbs of Philadelphia. Surrounded by friends and family, it was in between holiday celebrations when he would settle down and get to work writing. Thanks to the room, in the old Pennsylvania log cabin house, a new album will be released in 2024.

IN HIS OWN WORDS:

I put pen to paper in the front room of the old family farmhouse, where my brother Tommy left me a guitar to use while I was in town. In that room, lives the memories of my ancestry and the friendly ghosts of my past. So much has happened in that house that it overflows with soul. All those acts of unconditional love, like condensation gathering.  

Places like these are where songwriters belong. A place where the mind swims in a river of inspiration. It saturates the heart with ancient emotion. That room has millions of songs in it, all you have to do is take a seat and listen to your heart.

Our ability to find beauty in the world around us is a gift. It’s the very definition of art, and at the core of thinking that translates tragedy, pain, and loss into something that helps us grow. ‘Everything’ is a nod to this gift, written for those who see riches where others would only see nothing and the creator in every single one of us.

LYRICS:

With the ocean in my eyes, feet in the sand 

One last step and it’s goodbye to dry land

Feel the cold water flow 

When I’ve never felt more alone

Everything transforms into something beautiful

Say everything transforms into something beautiful

Say everything transforms into something beautiful

Full moon fades out in the west

It’s time to take a deep breath

Get down beneath the wave out the other side

Get ready for the very next set 

Hear my heart beating out my chest

Everything transforms into something beautiful

Say everything transforms into something beautiful

Say everything transforms into something beautiful

See the fire of the sun fill the evening sky

When we get together, guaranteed good times

Got a good thing going, ain’t no denying

Baby DO YOUR THING, I’ll do mine

Do your thing baby, I’ll do mine

Surrounded by the sun and the ocean

Ain’t nothing like right here & right now

Feel so high right here besides you

I don’t ever want to come back down

Deep dark eyes to the skies

strong wings above the sand 

One last leap and trade the sky for dry land

Let your voice be a whispered prayer

Let your love always be there

Let everything transform into something beautiful

Say everything transforms into something beautiful

Say everything transforms into something beautiful

Lord, I’ve see how you’ve grown

How you’ve never felt more at home

In skin all your own , yet so much like your mom

I watched since you’re a baby girl, 

You mean everything in this world 

Everything transforms into something beautiful

Say everything transforms into something beautiful

Say everything transforms into something beautiful

Into something beautiful

Check out last year’s albums, “Songs of Wanderlust” (2023) was a love letter to the wandering American nomadic heart. “The Ram’s Dead, Vol 1” (2023) was a nod to one of my favorite bands of all time, the Grateful Dead.
