Jonah Tolchin Begins To Heal On 'Fires For The Cold'
Jonah Tolchin's journey through life has been a little rough over the past few years. His marriage ended and it left him looking for a new beginning. 'Fires For The Cold' is the result of putting some of those harrowing personal experiences to music. It's something he excels at.
"The whole nature of what I do is to transform what are mainly difficult emotions into creative energy, uplifting the spirit and turning sorrow to joy."
One of the album's most emotional songs is 'White Toyote Ranger.' Tolchin says it's a song that was inspired by witnessing a stranger's grief while he was sitting in a parking lot.
"I just happened to look over, and his head was in his hands and I could tell he was just weeping. It really hit an emotional chord for me to see that."
