While most of Jason Robert Brown’s music is personal, his “Caravan of Angels” goes even deeper, as it's about the artist and his relationship with his wife, composer-lyricist and music supervisor Georgia Stitt.
“‘Caravan of Angels’ came on the tenth year of my wife and I being together,” he says of the song he included on his latest album, How We React and How We Recover, released by Ghostlight Records June 29. “The phrase ‘caravan of angels’ came into my head and I was like, ‘What is that?’
“I realized my brain was trying to process what it was to have been with this person for this long, and the only way you can do it is if you're being watched over by a caravan of angels,” he says. The song also appears on the Tony-winning composer-lyricist’s Jason Robert Brown in Concert With Anika Noni Rose.
“At the moment when you most need them, there are people who are gluing you back together all the time. 'Caravan of Angels' was my tribute to them—and my tribute to Georgia.”
