In Their Words: “I wrote ‘Stealing Starlight’ with my songwriting partner in crime, Putnam Murdock, on the great island of Martha’s Vineyard. We go every year in late June and hole up for a week in Chilmark, Massachusetts, in a small cabin overlooking a beautiful meadow. We wrote a lot of the melodies to this one at the beach on our ukuleles. This one is a summer’s tale of love and debauchery, building memories that will last a lifetime and we do it because we can.

“‘Stealing Starlight’ documents a songwriting journey of looking for openings in the ether to grab a song and realize it. If we are lucky enough, we allow ourselves to find the beauty in everything, capture it, and marry it to music. The simplicity of the instrumental chorus that settles between verses mirrors the pause we desperately need in life to steal a moment and fall in love.” –Reed Foehl
