In Their Words: “As many songwriters can attest, there are days when you wake up with a sweet little melody swirling around in your head, and your mission then and there is to catch it before it wisps away. One such morning, my husband called me over to my daughter’s crib saying, ‘Look at our big mover.’ She was only a few months old at the time, but she had somehow made her way from one side of the crib to the other. In that moment, the morning melody and my husband’s words coalesced into the chorus of ‘Big Mover.’ I thought about how quickly life moves and the bittersweetness of seeing your child grow just as quickly through it. I could also see myself in her; my need to rush to get to the next big thing, to accomplish goals big and small, to be constantly in motion. I wrote this song as a way to tell her that I’m excited to see how her life will unfold, while reminding her to take in the beautiful but fleeting present.” — Sarah Eide
