Grace & Tony Greenroom Sessions: Riley Etheridge, ‘Like a Fool’
"Like a Fool" is "a song about starting over and optimism in the face of loss," Etheridge tells The Boot. The video above was recorded in his home in New York City.
The song will be released in 2016, on a project that features the "she" in "Like a Fool" throughout all of its tracks.
"The heroine and her story are the central theme that connects all of the songs on this upcoming project," Etheridge explains.
The singer-songwriter's fifth and latest disc, The Straight and Narrow Way, was released in March of 2014 and features, among others, Sara Watkins. Another collaborator, drummer Jim Keltner -- who has worked with, among others, Lucinda Williams -- describes the project's sound as like "Steely Dan got lost over a long weekend in New Orleans." It is available on Amazon and iTunes.
The Boot will feature a new Greenroom Sessions video next on Aug. 15, so be sure to check back then for a new performance!
