Episode 16: "Don't Rush Me" by Cat McGee
"Where are you running off to now?"
With this playful yet poignant question, Cat McGee begins her complex composition about the importance of taking time to be present, to reflect, and to share in the spaces between the hustle and bustle of daily life. In this episode, Cat talks about how and why "Don't Rush Me" has two versions--one fast and teasing, one slow and haunting. She also shares a bit about the spirituality of songwriting, the importance of editing, and the beauty of the stories we gather in the moments shared with others. Cat and Emmeline also explore the ways in which the pandemic has changed the way songwriters view their own material, the gifts in lockdown, and how each has rediscovered the value of a hug.
