LISTEN: Clara Baker, “Moving On”

In Their Words: “This song is bittersweet reflection on how hard but important it is to notice that it’s time to move on. It could be about love, but this is a song I wrote on my second retreat at the Shotpouch Cabin in the Burnt Woods. I had been living in Corvallis for 4 years and loved living there so much, but I was at a crossroads in my career and I realized that I needed to be in a bigger city in order to seriously pursue my career goals. When we recorded this song, at the very end, I looked up from the microphone and over at Zach Hickman (on bass) who gave me a knowing nod, that kind of said ‘Hell yeah. Good work.’ I immediately burst into tears. Recording all together in the same room, no headphones, and no separation, we all felt in the moment and it just felt so special to be able to be playing music together, and capturing one specific moment in time, rather than cutting and pasting it all together digitally.” — Clara Baker
