In Their Words: “A musician friend of mine gave me a guitar as a wedding gift. Within 30 minutes of owning the guitar, this song bloomed into existence. ‘Roots and Wings’ is an homage to my parents and all the sacrifices they made in order for me to have a better life than they had. My mother is a retired second-grade school teacher who dedicated her life to educating generations of youth. My father is an activist and attorney who is committed to amplifying the voices of oppressed people. The title of the song is inspired by the Goethe quote: ‘There are only two lasting bequests we can hope to give our children. One of these is roots, the other, wings.'” — Antonio Lopez
