In Their Words: “‘Boss Fight’ was written in 2014 while I was still a professor at Berklee College of Music in Boston. I set out to write a high-energy minor melody in the style of Ronnie McCoury, knowing that I would use it when I finally made this record. It remained unnamed until we finished tracking it in the studio, and while talking over edits we all agreed it felt like the music you hear when you fight the final boss in a video game, thus the title ‘Boss Fight’ was born. Another memory from that day is how I found myself in disbelief hearing how much life this incredible group of my peers breathed into this track, and the whole record for that matter. Chris Eldridge, who produced Cascade, in particular had some invaluable insight on how to make this tune move the way it does. I am so grateful for everyone who made this music possible!” — Wes Corbett
