Strange Apples ~ Make Them POP!

In this episode we celebrate the 300th episode of Cider Chat and release a new cider song titled “Strange Apples”!

This song is one part poking fun at ourselves as cidermakers and enthusiasts for all things cider. I began writing this song one night while sitting along on a sailboat in the Santa Cruz Harbor in Santa Cruz California in August of 2021. I was in town taking care of family (my mom) and had a couple hours to myself, so I squirreled away on my brother’s boat with the intention to put to song a little ditty that was playing out in my head. I wore head phones so that I wouldn’t be cranking the tune and waking the liveaboard sailors around me. Water is my muse, having grown up on a river bank and spent many a night singing with my cousin Jay and friends as we floated down the mighty river.

In a few short days my cousin Jay and I, would go into the Santa Cruz Recording Studio and do the final wrap to this new cider song titled “Strange Apples”.
