This song was written during a period when Arden was between drummers. Ironically, "Grow!" kicks off with drums and is very focused on rhythmic elements. Our good friend Max Kuzmyak again lent his talents with the horns. Laurie came up with a great vocal part for the bridge that really brings that section to life.


I was born on a Saturday.
My momma kept the bad at bay.
My daddy wept into his hands,
he could never be the bigger man.

Love is a game of give and take,
we give and give until we break.
We work our hands down to the bone
for an empty heart and an empty home.

And we all give out for the greater good.
And we grow and grow just like they said we would.

Grow and take up roots and spread your love around.
Know we fade away so just hold on.


from The Big Picture, released April 2, 2010
Horns and horn arrangement by Max Kuzmyak.

Engineered and mixed by Lee Cumberland.
Produced by Arden.
Mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Music.
