In Their Words: “’When The Crow Comes Down’ is a really well-written story song that was co-written by a tremendous Nashville singer-songwriter, Jordan Rainer. We fell in love with the spooky theme and the imagery she created. The Appalachian tone and timbre of Sarah’s unique vocal was perfect for the delivery. Creating the mood for this song through arrangement was exciting, but it was the artists who all truly captured my vision. Richard Bennett and I work together a lot in the studio and his distinctive guitar picking constantly blows my mind. I was so honored when he agreed to be such a huge part of this project! And Deanie Richardson’s fiddle was the perfect fit for this song! She’s able to perfectly capture each emotion in the story; she is truly outstanding. Everyone’s contributions came together to create such an amazing final recording for this song! A video was a must! And who doesn’t enjoy a good scary movie? Bonfire Music Group did a great job with the production and we all had fun watching Sarah get creepy! We hope you enjoy it!”– Steve Wilson, Wilson Banjo Co.
