In Their Words: “Writing Where the Valley Kissed the Sky was a departure from my norms in a lot of ways. For starters it was the first time I’d really focused on writing in a narrative style as opposed to being directly autobiographical. ‘Save Me’ is told from the perspective of a character who has just moved back to Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley after some time away, and is quickly reimmersed in the desperation plaguing that area and a lot of the country. This leads to an overwhelming plea for help and guidance through tumultuous times. I also really tried to expand things sonically with this record and create a landscape that blended traditional Americana instrumentation with a bit of a modern sound. I think we really found that on ‘Save Me’ especially with the incorporation of more synth and organ than I’d used in the past.” — Mike Frazier
