Look Me in the Eye is a new song from the singer-songwriter team of Glen Phillips (Toad the Wet Sprocket) and Jason Karaban (Ani DeFranco, Sara Watkins) and inspired by the upcoming release of the documentary FREE TRIP TO EGYPT.
Look Me in the Eye was recently recorded by an impressive collection of singers, recording artists and studio musicians at the famed Boulevard Recording studio in Los Angeles, with lyrics that touch on our film’s themes of civility, deep listening and authentic, compassionate conversations.
Produced by Justin Stanley (Eric Clapton, Sheryl Crow, Jet), Look Me in the Eye features lead vocals from Phillips and Karaban and a band that includes fellow singer-songwriter Val McCallum on guitar, bassist Sebastian Steinberg (Soul Coughing), drummer Pete Thomas (Elvis Costello), and keyboardists Benmont Tench (Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers).
“I was truly inspired by the film and Glen felt the same way, so that made it easy to write the song,” said Karaban. “It was really pretty special seeing all of these amazing musicians come together and lend their talents to the project. Seeing how happy everybody was to be a part of it was amazing.”
