During my first recording session with Sam, I noticed how reserved and timid she was at exploring her voice. She has an amazing voice. Warm. Beautiful. Soulful. We spoke about how she saw herself as a vocalist and music in general. Later that night, I wrote this song for her, as a vehicle for her to explore her voice and natural talent.

My vocal inspirations on it were inspired more by my love for Tom Waits' music. It took me a week to recover from that gravelly grate rattling around in my voice box.


Murder of Crows
Lyrics by Stavros
Music by Stavros & Samantha Klotz

A murder of crows
What do they know
A lit to the sky
Blocking the sun
In your eyes, in your eyes

Feathers like rain
Stick into the sand
As fingers entwined
In your hands, in your hands, in your hands

Black crow flies
Along the side of the road
Picking up blue shells
For a beautiful, beautiful,
Raven-haired girl, raven-haired girl

Picking up blue shells
In your eyes
A murder of crows

Raven-haired girl
Strong as the sky
Feathers for skin
With love in her eyes

Every vibration that moves within us, around us, and through us, can be heard, felt, and played. I play with the sounds of Folk, Rock, Punk, Funk, Hip Hop, Spoken Word, and Jazz to explore the journey of this odd flesh suitcase traveling down this organic ghetto. ... more
