#Ordinary #TheTalbottBrothers #MusicVideo #DianaMarySharpton #MyDesire #IsOne #U @Talbottbrothers


“I want to see the thirst
inside the syllables
I want to touch the fire
in the sound:
I want to feel the darkness
of the cry. I want
words as rough
as virgin rocks.” - Verb.”
― Pablo Neruda

My featured artists this evening are the multi-talented and brilliant The Talbott Brothers from the great state of Nebraska, USA. They are new to me and definitely a fresh sound that echos folk or even a urban blues sentimentality. Their music is typically considered a rock, and/or folk genre. 

The song selected is titled "Ordinary". It is the three track on their 2019 albumn titled "Ghost Talker" The song was uploaded on YouTube by The Talbott Brothers and published on Oct 31, 2019. 

At little about the artists found on their website:
"The Talbott Brothers have earned a large and growing following for their songs consisting of down-to-earth messages that prove to be prevalent in today’s world. Originally from Imperial, Nebraska, they now call Portland, Oregon home. Billboard defines their music as “captivating with haunting brotherly harmonies.”

Ghost Talker is the second full-length studio album from the sibling duo. Rolling Stone named their latest single one of the ‘Top 10 Songs to Hear Now,’ defining their music as “cinematic folk-rock for open highways, widescreen skies and the limitless reach of the American Heartland.” Blood harmonies and sibling rivalry are evident in their songwriting with lyrics pulling from the trials of everyday life and the questions we all face. “Everyone has ghosts, whether they talk about them or not. We wanted to take off the mask and be honest with this record, hoping that what we needed to say is what people needed to hear.”

At its core, the album is transformative in nature, prompting the listener to question motives, face realities, and go to war with their own ghosts. Spiritual apprehension and seeking answers are common themes. “Shadowboxing” is a hard look in the mirror, realizing that what you have been fighting all along is your own fear. “It takes one good fight to turn things around.”

Lead single, “Run No More” forces a look at the past while offering a soul shaking guitar solo that feels like a rally cry. “We tried running for a long time but it doesn’t do a heart any good. Sometimes in a wake-up call you realize what’s most important to you. "Run No More" is about when your legs give out and you gotta turn around and fight.”

The Talbott Brothers have performed at 30A Fest, SXSW, The Rock Boat and clubs and theaters across the US and Canada; sharing the stage with ZZ Ward, Johnnyswim and AJR."


This song speaks to my heart, the love in my life, journey difficulties, and finally how truly blessed I am today to be alive writing this post. I highly recommend the album titled "Ghost Talker" which was released in 2019

What makes the world stop turning
Is yet the touch of your skin
I couldn’t be further from you
But you’re still right here
I caught a plane to Portland
For a few days of work
My heart stays heavy on you
And you’re on my shirt
All the in between
Keeps us on our feet
Through the day to day and dreams
We’ll find our ordinary
The hope we carry some days
Feels like a burden
But this blood inside our veins was
Paid for with purpose
There’s a ghost in these bones and it’s willing my soul
I feel it like a fire
To let my love pour over you darling
Is my one desire
All the in between
Keeps us on our feet
Through the day to day and the dreams
We’ll find our ordinary
Recorded at Tone Lab Studio in Portland, OR
All music written by The Talbott Brothers

Peace and Love always
Diana Mary Sharpton
