Hey! Listen: Jeremy Squires -- "The Collector"

I think we've all spent 2020 digging into ourselves, uncovering an internal lost and found of memories, passions, and desires. For Squires, that meant remastering his out-of-print album A Place to Hide, which came out in 2010. Squires' sound has evolved into a sort of shoegaze folk, though that essential core of oscillating between loneliness and hope is plain to see on A Place to Hide.

On "The Collector," Squires painstakingly picks up the pieces after a breakup. According to him, the song still hits home with audiences:

“I wrote this song back in 2006 and every time I play live I include it in the set. 'The Collector' resonates on a deeper level for some reason. I feel like when you listen to the song you can visualize the imagery and the feelings conveyed. The lines 'I have a collection of memories I keep' and the simplicity of 'I remember everything” hits hard.'"
