Sometimes, you find yourself growing up. You realize that some of the things you believed and thought were solid in your life really aren’t – and in fact are even harmful to you. You find you have to question those things to create a new path for yourself. You’ve got to start again. This was Graeme’s experience at the end of his high school years and the beginning of his college years. Sting’s 1987 record …Nothing Like the Sun was Graeme’s “first grown-up record” and was an important part of his personal soundtrack at the time when he was calling his belief system into question. This is an album that also touches on life-changing events and challenges to meet a world that is often perplexing, cruel, and sometimes even violent. How did this album help Graeme create clarity during a tumultuous time in his life? How did the Deeper Cuts trio process the music? Did it go straight to the heart? Or does Graeme dance alone on this one? There’s only one way to find out! Join our new main host Shannon Dohar (alongside Rob Jones and Graeme Burk) for this first episode of our fourth (!) season.
Our Spotify Playlist will have the albums we’re looking at this season, along with the songs from our COVID Sessions earlier this year.

Strangely, the collaborating talent on the album didn’t receive any mention. Annie Lennox, Eric Clapton, Mark Knopfler, Gill Evans, etc. etc.
