More about this song here:

I grabbed my guitar one night in 2009 while working on someone else’s album as a producer and began playing a few chords. It was as if “In a Minute” came from nothing, and before I knew it I had jotted down its lyrics.

It wasn’t really a song I thought I’d record, but two years later, as we got ready to leave the studio after three long days of tracking Rodrigo Mantovani’s bass and Eduardo Longuim’s drums, Luis ‘Granja’ Venturin got into a huge argument with me about recording the tune. We’d ran into several mishaps over the course of that last session and I was determined to leave “In a Minute” out of the album. He stubbornly managed to convince everyone to stay and I went along with it in the end.

Rodrigo’s wife drove 60 miles to where we were to bring him his double bass as we set up the live room and I strung up my acoustic. Eduardo actually slept through three or four takes but we somehow managed to get through the whole song and finally left the studio at 9:00am.

After recording electric guitar a couple of weeks later, (thank you Nacle Nabak), I came to the conclusion that the song should be the title track for the album. The full “In a Minute” record was officially released on July 15th, 2012, and the song after which it was named delicately closes the album.


In a minute a thousand memories
Flash before my eyes
Of life they way I’ve lived it
Of a love I can’t describe

And all of the words that I’m singing
And all the chords I play
They run into the feeling
That perhaps I should have stayed

I used to sit around and whisper
Just talking to myself
I never thought I’d ever find somebody else

I didn’t believe for a minute
That all those lonely nights
One day they’d have a purpose
One day they’d make things right
