Houston rockers Orange Is In are back with “Someone Came to Help Me,” a single that tells the tale of a transplant patient and organ donor. It was inspired by the patients, donor families and caregivers at The Methodist Hospital Transplant Center in Houston.

Bassist Jeff Balke and vocalist George Kovacik played at a “Donate Life” event at the hospital two years in a row and the third year we thought it would be good to write a song for the event, and this is the result. Guitarist Chris Rogers added his special touch on guitar, banjo and behind the boards, both as engineer and mixer. The song will be available for download on a variety of services, including iTunes, in mid-March.

He also worked on our first two records and is┬ánot only a great engineer, but also a great guy.

If you’re ever in Houston, I suggest you get the “Original.” It’s filledtownes300 with┬ásalami, ham and lots of relish, but I digress. Anyway, we’re talking and Steve proceeds to tell me that he worked on Steve Earle’s latest and greatest disc, Townes. Pleasantly surprised, I asked him if he would answer a few questions about his whirlwind trip to the Big Apple and the making of, in my opinion, the best album of the year.
