Johnny Mew –
This is a song I’d love as many Aussie parents to hear, to let them know they’re a) not alone and b) to remind them of the simple power of making a date, even if it’s just on the deck outside once the kids are in bed (:>.
What were you up-to when this song came about?
Specifically I was in Noosa, waiting for my boys to finish Jujitsu. I was pondering how far we’d come and as a family and how many families are in the same boat under the pressures of life. How many relationships stretched and the reality of tag team parenting. Not to mention cost of living pressures, renting, moving etc.
What does this song signify to you?
As my first solo single this song will remain very special in my heart. Its also serves a strong reminder for the importance of connection and making the time to nourish and nurture LOVE in my life.
What is your intention with this song “Our Love”?
“Our Love” – Is to remind people to take the time to nourish and nurture their relationship, give their love the time amongst busy life. It’s just as much for myself as others yet I knew so many families would relate. I’d like to raise awareness around men’s mental health, sharing emotions in a positive way and the importance of making the time!
What is your favourite line or lyric and why?
‘We don’t need money to make the time, to nourish and nurture, nurture nurture, OUR LOVE.’ I love it because it’s simple AND true!
