In Their Words: “The first time we met to talk about the record, John [Leventhal, who produced the album in his Manhattan home studio,] said he wanted me to try to take a step back and look out at the world in my songwriting, rather than looking inward. It completely opened the gates for me, and I started thinking a lot about growing up in Texas and diving into those memories in a way I’d never really done before. I think it has something to do with being in my late 20s, and starting to enter the phase where I’m looking back at what got me to where I am now — as opposed to constantly looking forward, as you do when you’re younger. It felt like the right time for me to return full circle to my roots and my home.” — Sarah Jarosz
