With a big 4-part harmony leading into a gentle piano-ballad verse, it’s not until the chorus that we even hear the acoustic guitar. And then you won’t hear the horns until just before the second verse; the harmonium after that.
It’s like a trail of little melodic gifts, tied together with a folk-pop-friendly sense of presence, and some humility. The message here is that we can always be, as humans, brought together by an appreciation for life’s beauty: confident in the truth that we are never really alone.
The Collection already enjoy a well-deserved following on Spotify with mostly US-based fans; we hope this will be the single that opens them up to a larger international market.
For the past 7 years, David Wimbish, along with the various iterations his band The Collection, have been charting the ebb and flow of a life seen through the eyes of a poet. This song is featured on our Roots Collection playlist.
