“’Flowers Need Rain’, at it's core, is a conversation between myself and my personal journey of making music,” says Preston Pablo. “There are peaks and valleys along the way, but the connection I have to the music that I make is eternal. Stripping the song down to just piano and strings highlights the vulnerability and message which are the foundation of the song. This acoustic version of Flowers Need Rain is extremely special to me, and I hope it touches some people along the way."
