about

"Harder Than Diamonds" is kinda dreamy and meshes a bird's-eye view perspective with a more personal one. While there's a story about meeting a stranger and the joyous moments that bring about the biggest of smiles and hardest of laughs, the chorus zooms out--hinting at common truths about life itself, often easier seen from a bird's-eye view.

lyrics

LYRICS

Shared a secret with a stranger
as she cashed out my bill
blushing in her apron
laughing harder than diamonds.

Found a wash in Harlem
from the hands of the children –
braided hair and barefoot
laughing harder than diamonds.

We were giving the time of our lives.
We were giving the soul and the song.
We were giving the time of our lives.
We were given the right and the wrong.

Caught a moment in the grass
where the lovers were rooted,
exchanging dimpled glances,
laughing harder than diamonds.

We were giving the time of our lives.
We were giving the soul and the song.
We were giving the time of our lives.
We were given the right and the wrong.

Traded time for stories
where the creek was golden.
Poked your thigh of sunburn,
laughing harder than diamonds.

We were giving the time of our lives.
We were giving the soul and the song.
We were giving the time of our lives.
We were given the right and the wrong.

about

Spring Owls Los Angeles, California

After releasing his first album (2013) and a single (2016), with the help of a successful crowdfunding campaign and touring it for 4 years, he took a break from music. Using his degree in English, he moved to South Korea to teach.

To revive his second album, Love Evolving, he launched a second crowdfunding campaign, raising over $10k.

Spring Owls, translates to “rebirth and wisdom.”
