A collective of Nashville songwriters penned a song for and inspired by Help-Portrait that’s available as a free download from Noisetrade. “I See You” was a collaboration between songwriters Andy Davis, Jason Ingram, Chad Cates and Paul Mabury. We recently talked with Davis about how the song came to be and what their hope for it is.
Where did the idea for the song come from?
Jeremy asked me if I’d be interested in writing a song for Help-Portrait – I thought it would be cool to get a lot of people involved, so it turned into a group effort with Paul, Jason, Chad and I.
When we got together we just started talking about what makes Help-Portrait so special…..what it does for people. There are tons of reasons why it’s an amazing concept, but we kinda settled on this one idea that everyone wants to be noticed – to be seen – to validate their existence as humans. Getting your picture taken makes you feel important.
