Dave Tamkin Gives Us All The Feels With "Bleeding Orange"

Inspired by a unique combination of Tom Petty songs and the great Monarch butterfly migration, "Bleeding Orange" is an uplifting song about finding your passions in life while disguising the truth about what it really takes to achieve your dreams. "I was driving from Omaha to Kansas City and my windshield collided with an unusual amount of butterflies [due to the Monarch butterfly migration]. After pulling over and cleaning off the dreams of what seemed like hundreds of butterflies, I turned on my radio and "Running Down a Dream" by Tom Petty filled my speakers. I thought about how running down my dream as a songwriter. I'm running down the dreams of all these butterflies trying to find their way home. "
