SAN FRANCISCO, CA. August 5, 2022 – Ram Dass’ voice is like listening to Crosby, Stills, and Nash all from one person. He creates depth and layers with his voice that are intoxicating. On his latest single “Trust in the Blue,” he gently explores melancholy, maturing, and coping with the unknown. Trust in the Blue” is a lilting folk song with a message of hope and encouragement. Finger-picked acoustic guitar, strings, and three-part harmonies portray both sadness and serenity in this gentle, timeless ballad.
“Trust in the Blue is about trying to surrender to life,” says Ram Dass. “The blue is that unknown, you know, things come out of the blue, so this is trusting the things we don’t know about, and trusting that it’s all going to be okay,”
