Bob Gemmell Releases Touching New Single "Lesson Number Two"

Bob Gemmell, a Santa Cruz-based artist, has released his latest track, "Lesson Number Two," a reflective trip through acoustic rock, soft rock, and independent folk. Gemmell, known for his evocative storytelling and rich musical tapestry, portrays the emotional complexity of seeing a loved one prepare to depart this world and the messages they convey before passing away.

"Lesson Number Two" moves fluidly from somber moments to bursts of joyful rock & roll, capturing the highs and lows of such a deep experience. The lyrics are based on Gemmell's personal experiences, particularly his mother's final days, when she drifted in and out of consciousness, giving views of the other side and teaching important life lessons.

Bob Gemmell, the leader of the band Big Medicine Head, continues to demonstrate his versatility as a solo artist. His past solo recordings, as well as the critically praised song Parts and Labour, established him as a captivating voice in American rock and indie folk. His most recent single builds on this foundation, providing listeners with a tragic story matched to a fascinating tune.

"Lesson Number Two" was recorded at Lucky Dog Studio in Eugene, Oregon, and features JeffyD on drums and bass, Lee Takasugi on piano and vocals, and Johnny McGuire on guitar and vocals. Gemmell's creative process for this track was highly intimate, as he frequently rehearsed in his Volkswagen Bus, which also doubled as his sleeping accommodations.

Gemmell's melody, which draws inspiration from musicians such as Lord Huron and The Moody Blues, depicts an intriguing American environment. His music, described as cinematic and firmly entrenched in the American West, continues to evoke themes of grief, redemption, and the wide road.

"Lesson Number Two" is now accessible across all major streaming platforms. Bob Gemmell's latest song is a passionate tribute to the fleeting moments of life and the wisdom they bring.
