Singer-songwriter Mason Jennings returns to Sacred Heart music Center in support of his latest release: “Songs From When We Met.”
“Songs From When We Met” was written during a recent month-long farm retreat where time was spent walking through the woods and passing a nearby river. Jennings was inspired by wildlife – the owls and snakes he visited daily.
“Songs were coming in so fast they just about took my head off. It was unlike anything I’ve experienced before,” recalls Jennings.
In Native American animal medicine, snakes symbolize rebirth and owls symbolize seeing what others cannot and turning darkness into light. Both are themes throughout the album and the music has a clear hopeful feeling.
“The last record was made in a real dark time for me. I was battling a lot of dark energy. Since then I’ve healed a lot and a lot of changes have taken place,” said Jennings. “It’s been a rough patch but thankfully this record is about healing and hope. I fell in love and got married so it is mostly about love.”
Tickets are $20 in advance and go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, Dec. 13 on Eventbrite.com. TIckets will also be available at Electric Fetus in Duluth and Globe News in Superior.
