In this podcast episode we travel behind the scenes again, into the making of one of the songs I wrote and released earlier this year, along with Canadian singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Dan Frechette, on our album "After the Fire." This time, I shares the origins of a hopeful and empowering song, If A Wave, that came to me back in 2019. We learn about the meaning behind my metaphor heavy lyrics, what factors informed the our arrangement choices and my approach to composing the violin lines, as well as the making of the song's music video which has just been released on YouTube.
