Jan 28 - Feb 3 If Words Were Flowers by Curtis Harding

Growing up, Curtis Harding's mother always told him to ‘give her the flowers while she was still alive’. That sentiment created a basis for his third album, and our album of the week, If Words Were Flowers. Flowers are something you usually give to someone you care about. As a songwriter, words are everything. So it seems even more intimate that Harding is gifting us with his words with this release.

After the past couple years, there are lots of words to use to describe our world: chaotic, stressful, uncertain, and...hopeful. Yes, hopeful. As hard as it may be sometimes, Harding decides to focus on this word throughout the album.

Check out our album of the week, If Words Were Flowers on KAXE/KBXE!
