Thanks to Julie Epp of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, one of the tracks from our second album New Disguise has become a music video! We adventured out with Julie into Bird’s Hill Park on the outskirts of Winnipeg last July and are excited to share the video. I wrote this song in February 2014 after a misunderstanding at the Canadian border escalated into me being banned from Canada for a year and Dan and I needing to part ways for a time. I needed a song to give me courage that I had done everything right and some hope that everything would work out in the end! Enjoy!
