Graham Nash signs Our House
Legendary singer-songwriter Graham Nash collaborates with award-winning graphic artist Hugh Syme (Art of Rush) in bringing the lyrics of the Nash classic song "Our House” to a winsome illustrated book. The iconic song, a love child of the Laurel Canyon era, was written fifty years ago when Graham Nash and Joni Mitchell were living in her canyon bungalow, with two cats and a whole lot of countercultural domestic bliss. “I wanted the heart of the wistful lyrics and music to conjure the emotion of a safe, warm and inviting place of peace, contentment and love,” says Nash. “This book is the very sentiment I hoped to convey when I first wrote the song." With a reimagined Laurel Canyon setting, two cats in the yard, a roaring fire, and Syme’s version of the vase that started it all, the book evokes the emotion of the song while celebrating the joy of love and home. The book also contains a new original work of art by Nash.
