Music Video | Traveling Boy

Posted on Updated on

Sometimes, there are people in our lives who are just passing through like lost loves that we will always remember.

A song composed by songwriting greats Roger Nichols and Paul Williams in the 70’s, Traveling Boy was the first track of the album Angel Care.

The album title is lifted from a Thomas Hardy character from his book Tess of d’Urbervilles, a tragic tale of lost loves and sad circumstance. Angel Care, husband to Tess, abandons his wife due to her past. He comes back for her only to find Tess a mistress to a wealthy scion, who raped her in the past and whom she murders to exact revenge. Angel and Tess spend an uninterrupted five days of bliss before she is arrested and hanged.

Sometimes there is a song that captures our soul for days on end, that it becomes a part of your own soundtrack in life.
