World premiere of Jesse Ruben’s “You are not alone anymore”
New York-based singer/songwriter Jesse Ruben’s career was once sidelined for two and a half years due to a debilitating case of Lyme disease.
As he recently wrote on Facebook:
“Sometimes I write songs because I want to, and sometimes I write songs because I have to. Sometimes, they’re not for other people, just for me, to help me process and deal with something challenging.
“This song, ‘You’re Not Alone Anymore,’ was written during and right after my battle with Lyme. About how scared and angry I was. About how isolating it can be. I never intended to play it for anyone. But Jen Jacob and I were invited to perform/speak at Something Inside So Strong, a Lyme Disease conference in Amsterdam recently. And in a room full of people who would understand, I decided at the last minute to play it. I’m so glad I did.”
We’re glad he did, too! Have a listen, and then tell us what you think about it in the comments section.
