"A warm piano and rustling percussion buoy “Teeter”.
Andrew Greenhalgh music writer


i speak the words in silence, nothing to be said.
and lay in bending grasses, wind minds, tall tasses.
of trees, in shade i lie, understood i stand.
yet laying is for time, a word to forget.
or see it thru it's verse, untangle ties, unravel rhymes.
only know, and breathe, life is said to be in between.
birth and death are one, anyway, it all rolls back to...

love is the key, dance with it,
stay with me, here on the verge.
i'll try not to explain, for you know, i know, we do,
teeter, brink of light, flash... we almost got it now.
almost got it, almost got it now...
across the space of time...

if i said it, now it would be gone,
so i'll hint, so we can enjoy.
and we'll know this in breathing,
no attempts to explain,
we know, and knowing
we breathe.

Stephen Cogswell San Francisco, California

Stephen Cogswell is a remarkable singer and songwriter with a knack for creating island beats and breezy tunes that are not too unlike music by Xavier Rudd, Dave Matthews, Jack Johnson, and even Darius Rucker. The vocals are strong, poetic, and earthy throughout. If a beach had a soundtrack: Floating would be the answer.
