In Their Words: “This is a simple song about moving from Newfoundland to Los Angeles, losing track and getting lost in all the clear skies and windless days, waiting for a big break that never seems to come, yearning for it, and of course, in turn, for your home so unlike it, so far away. I wrote this song in almost one single sitting in a rare hotel room to myself, somewhere in the sandy southwestern states, on tour with Hey Rosetta years ago.

“Since it’s a song all about being buoyed up by winds of change and hope through heavy homesickness, I really wanted to film myself singing it while hang-gliding. When in Florida visiting family, I noticed boats parasailing back and forth along the beach everyday. I called around and found one company (with the stars-and-stripes chute to boot) whom I convinced to let me fly with a guitar and have my brother film me on his drone and whattayaknow it actually worked! Here is the cinematic magic from that hour on the Gulf.” — Tim Baker
