The members of Each Passing Day are longtime friends with widely varied
musical influences. All three are writers -- they used to write primarily
instrumentals, and then Loren started adding lyrics. Loren\'s songs are
inspired by his musical heroes, such as Damien Rice, Iron & Wine, Paul Simon
and The Beatles. \"Homesick\" and \"San Francisco\" received Best Song awards
in the West Coast Songwriters Competitions in San Luis Obispo.
