Told from the perspective of a mechanic, the song’s narrator lets his mind wander and linger on every mistake he’s made. “This song is about doing someone wrong having to live with what you’ve done, hoping one day they’ll forgive you,” Jeremie Albino explains. Creating the concept for the video himself, Jeremie pays homage to his father, Pardo Albino, by recreating their family’s taxi meter shop. There he credits learning the importance of family and hard work.
Trading the booming metropolis of Toronto for Prince Edward County, a decade of country living has given Jeremie the time and space needed to create an album overflowing with heart through vivid storytelling of life and love. Emulating the heroes before him like Lighting Hopkins and Skip James, Jeremie Albino offers a soft and insightful touch with his folk songs, and stomps and swaggers through soulful rock ‘n’ roll. Letting his heart lead the way, the forthcoming album tells vivid stories of “love, life, people, and another time,” as Jeremieexplains. Albino appears to be the next in line of emotive band leaders that project soul and directness atop a head turning sound.“
