My name is Max Farrens, and I’m a senior at Bend Senior High School. I have been playing piano classically since I was seven years old, but only began trying to write songs with lyrics and fleshed out instrumentation about a year ago. “Green” was actually the first song I ever completed, and I wrote it on an airplane coming home from Guatemala. It’s about how people mature, change and go in different directions, “shedding” their past in the process. I was inspired to use the metaphor of a tree losing its leaves by all the vegetation and foliage I had seen on my trip. Thanks for listening!
