Letts – Emeralds

London-born Christian Letts returned to his native countryside to record his first LP, Hold Fast, with his friend and collaborator Marcus Mumford who produced the record. Hold Fast will be released on February 17, 2015, on Community Music/Vagrant Records. Other friends from their respective bands (Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros and Mumford and Sons) joined them at the farm, where, over the course of two consecutive Januaries, they crafted the ten tracks that comprise Hold Fast. The release will coincide with a series of art exhibits of Letts’ paintings and watercolors throughout the United States and Europe.

Letts - Emeralds

Letts is a songwriter, singer, painter and sculptor. Across all mediums there is a common theme of overcoming darkness. The sea, the sky, the countryside, the people within and their strengths, weaknesses, successes and failures. Spirits and guardian angels, recurring dreams, the unseen forces that silently sway. He explores himself alongside and within these elements on Hold Fast.

Letts – Emeralds

Letts – Emeralds Lyrics:
This is coming from within
Lost in paper stuck in pens
Ask my teachers and my friends
Is it me wide open? Could it be?

Seems a long time ago
Mama may have shown the bone [???]
A quick yes quickly turned no
Her milky fingers lost that ring
One more beginning from the end
[Guitar Solo]

My fingers trace the palms
Change directions at the thought
In the rain I found the sun
The green eyes open
[???]

One more beginning from the end
One more beginning from the end
One more beginning from the end

[Instrumental]

Burning bright, Bright like big suns
Emeralds and crowns, Burning bright
Bright like big suns. Emeralds and crowns
Burning bright, Bright like big suns
Emeralds and crowns, Emeralds and crowns.
