Single Thoughts – “Here in the Wild”

Its a Music that feels “other worldly” and untraditional.  Echoing back to eras of the past but bringing it into the present.

From its slow start focusing on the basics of a laid back song, its a song that takes people on a journey.  Its been a while hearing the combination of a piano and a smoky toned singer. The piano acts as the anchor to the song with a the voice the guide to how to get through it.

The lyrics hit the soul too and we Love to hear more and can’t wait to.
