In Their Words: “My overall outlook is less self-centered now. I’ve quite enjoyed the transition to solo work. I had gotten burned out by album cycles and the ever-spinning wheel. Now, not pushing myself constantly to keep the machine running has led to more freedom and happiness for me. And there are other advantages to solo decision-making, as opposed to an all out democracy. I’ve grown more confident in my abilities, and more mature in my handling of the ups and downs. I can’t really tell if my approach to the music has really changed. But I realized long ago that I’m at my best when I pay attention to inspiration and feeling, and just let everything unfold on its own.

“Long walks in nature, and reflections upon life’s mysteries, birthed this song. Listen closely in the first verse after the lyrics ‘birds fly in patterns, singing songs’ and you may hear what sounds like birds chirping. This is perhaps a cosmic coincidence. We believe it’s organ and/or guitar frequencies in a high register. Either way, leaving it in there was a no-brainer. Jamie Lin Wilson and Kelley Mickwee, formerly of The Trishas, provide the angelic background vocals.” — Kevin Galloway
