Today’s song is “Get on By” by Doc Straw & the Scarecrows. The Virginian group consists of Mike Straw (Vocals, Rhythm Guitar, Drums, Harmonica), Vaughn Thomas (Lead Guitar, Acoustic Guitar), Shelton Sprouse (Bass Guitar), and Taylor Bess (Keys).
This is the latest track from the southern rock and roll group. Its theme was inspired by a phone conversation Mike Straw had with his sister one night.
“I wrote this song after getting off of a 3-hour long phone conversation with my sister, Jessica, and a lot of our conversation that evening centered around some of the tougher things in life and how we were dealing with these struggles. If a person lives long enough then at some point they will experience these trying seasons. I’ve learned that it’s important to pay attention during those times because that is when we have some of the best opportunities to grow.“
The track was recently featured on Tattoo.com calling it a “polished resonance and attractive layers of color.” With just a few notes you can hear why. It is a thought-provoking anthem that offers advice for anyone who may be feeling the pain of these unsettling times.
With just a few notes you will be swept away with the affectionate southern rock charms and harmonious harmonica. The realistic lyrics are a comfort to know even with troubles we still have the persistence to be strong and “get on by.”
