This song invokes the sensation of distant thunder mellowing and moving on after a storm.
The past two years have held trying times for many (myself included), politically, financially, mentally. And belief is desperately needed to propel us on to better days. The belief I sing of is belief in the self -- trusting one's instincts and staying the course, belief in the strength of a pure, loving bond with another, and belief that the universal tides will inevitably turn.
Mike Neal penned this song - both its music and lyrics. It was first conceived as a folk ballad, guitar-based and very straight-foward. We had a beautiful time producing this version together; discovering the right key, tempo, feel, and sonic blend of instruments. All instruments were hand played - Mike Neal performed guitars and bass, and Faye Davis performed keyboard, piano, percussion, and backing & lead vocals. It is truly a bedroom recording, tracked on a Tascam 16 track digital portastudio. It was then mixed and mastered by Jim Monroe at The Racket Room in Santa Ana, CA.
