In Their Words: “We’ve been sitting on the song ‘Just Out of Reach’ for a few years actually, not knowing where it fit in with our repertoire. When we decided to release an acoustic album we felt it was the perfect timing for this ‘sad’ song. This song really gives Kim a chance to shine on a country-esque vocal, something she rarely gets to highlight with us primarily being a rock band.
“Our nature as songwriters is typically to write alone, so when a friend suggested hooking us up to write with Savannah Welch while we were visiting Los Angeles we decided maybe it was time we stepped out of our box and try the co-writing thing. It was a lovely and fairly quick writing session. Honestly, we can’t remember how far we even got with the writing with her because we ended up enjoying each other’s company and chatted as much as we worked. Savannah is a lovely human.” — The Smoking Flowers
