Story
of We're Only Alive For a Short Amount of Time

Read More

Growing up, writer/performer David Cale escaped his parents’ fraught marriage by singing in his bedroom and tending to birds in his backyard animal hospital. Lush songs, featuring a six-piece orchestra, and an intimate portrait of his mother unite in Cale’s vivid musical memoir of hope, family, and transcendence.
