It's Almost May

This song is a fusion of ideas and themes but my goal was to write a song that gave an East to West glimpse of 16th Street during the month of May. May is a big deal for Hoosiers and we see our city transformed by race culture, billboards, and an international spotlight on our oval track in the Speedway neighborhood. At the Harrison Center, May is also a time when we partner with the Indianapolis Motor Speedway's 500 festivities and promote “Porch Parties.” Porch Parties are an extension of this celebration and seek to bring neighbors together over food and fellowship and to foster neighborhood pride and connection.

As I wrote this song I wanted to celebrate our city, especially the month of May. I hope you are able to celebrate a bit as you enjoy this little number.
