Green Monkey Records is most pleased to release a new digital single from Fur For Fairies – “I Breath You In” b/w “Will You Love Me Tomorrow?” I Breath You In” was recorded as part of the original FFF album but held back due to its very personal nature; it was now deemed time to let it stand on its own. The song was written by Susanne and Jeff as a tribute/remembrance to her late father, Northwest artist and long-time University of Washington faculty member Michael Dailey.
Susanne Kelly: “I Breathe You In" is a love song to my father. He painted sky, sea and landscapes. In the art world he was renowned for his use of color. In our family he was color. After he died at home, the family honored his wishes to be cremated and scattered in the sea. I stood on a rock near shore, sky all around, and threw out handfuls. Instead of gray, the ashes were a sandy rose, and when airborne turned golden. No one could ever burn the color out of Michael Dailey. He colors my world still and always.”
Susanne Kelly is a Seattle painter, printmaker and pop music singer, plying the latter under the name Fur For Fairies with husband Jeff Kelly of the Green Pajamas.
