“A few years back, I started to piece together memories of turning up on friends’ doorsteps, confused because what I thought was one thing, was actually another,” said songwriter Babette Hayward (she/her). “The realization was that I’d wasted my time pining after people that never wanted me back.”

“My m.o. was to turn up with an elaborate or very specific gift, in order to win the heart of my conquest,” she said. “Some of these items include: a bonsai tree, an air mattress and a very expensive glass teapot. Only after writing the song, did I see the pattern in my attempts.” 

After moving from Atlantic Canada to the United Kingdom, Hayward had “moved on from then and put an ocean in between.” Still, her inventory of those doorstep moments continuted to gather.

“If you’ve spent any time in East London, you may have heard of the lido, perhaps even been there before,”  said Hayward. “For me, it was a place of reflection where I could mindlessly swim laps and remember the unwanted objects I’d left on doorsteps.” 

Now calling Montreal, Canada home, Maybe Babs releases “Doorstep” via Montreal-based singles club, Outside Smoke.
