Description: This blues rock single opens with a howling slide guitar that sets the tone, carrying and sustaining the intensity of the lament throughout. With a nod to the storytelling tradition of folk music, Hostetler sings about apparent consequences of climate change as told through the eyes of a field hand surrounded by natural disasters. Hostetler was awarded 2019 Best Singer Songwriter by LA Music Critic.

Lyrics

Shelter from the Storm - (Fred Hostetler)
I hear the wind, howling, whistling through the trees The grain fields are flattened, the thunder sounds And the pounding rain, keeps pouring down
And I'm trying to make it home
And find shelter from the storm. Trying to make it home shut the door And find shelter from the storm.
Black clouds swirl around my head
Lightning bolts and thunder crashing down,
I'm lucky I'm not dead
Even the earth shakes in fear
And I'm trying to get there
Behind the door inside my home
And find shelter from the storm
Trying to make it home, shut the door
And find shelter from the storm, shelter from the storm
Nature's fury got me, my body bent against the wind Holding on for dear life, seems like troubles my only friend I'm standing all alone, Lord have mercy on my soul
Trying to make it home, shut the door
And find shelter from the storm.
Trying to make it home, shut the door
And find shelter from the storm. Shelter from the storm
I'm soaking wet, soaked down to the bone
No sun no moon, to light my way home
The storms of life just keep raging, there's nowhere to hide Only in my heart can I abide,
To find shelter from the storm
Only in my heart can I abide
To find shelter from the storm
Shelter from the storm...
