Conversations with songwriters about their songs. Each episode begins and ends with a featured song played in full, allowing the listener to hear it with fresh ears and a new perspective. We explore the story behind the song with the artist who wrote it, discussing specific lines, phrases, themes, metaphors, production decisions, and the creative process.
A Justice Song (feat. Jenny & Tyler)
It's a beautiful thing when art goes to work for the common good, to keep the flame of our collective conscience burning. Jenny & Tyler's anthemic "Waters Roll" is powerful cry for justice.
Who We Are Is On the Line (feat. Merlot Embargo)
Making the most of the time we’re given. Overcoming the fears that keep us from trying. Staying true to who we are. These themes are at the heart of Merlot Embargo’s infectious pop anthem "One Day."
Every Age I’ve Ever Been (feat. Denison Witmer)
Reflecting on our most formative experiences is an essential part of the growth process. Denison Witmer's "San Francisco" is a moving tribute to the passage of time and the places that remain in our memory long after we've left them.
BONUS: The Homeless & The Pandemic
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we wanted to have an honest conversation with Michael Vanderburgh (executive director of the St. Vincent de Paul Society of Dayton, Ohio) about the struggles of serving the homeless during a global health crisis.
When Love Is A Storm (feat. Sarah Kroger)
Every relationship has highs and lows. Sometimes love feels like a dream — sometimes it's a storm. Sarah Kroger's beautiful song "I Choose You" lends an honest and hopeful voice to the ups, the downs, and the daily choices we make to stand in love.
All We Have Known (feat. Tyler Hook)
Someday all we have known will come to an end. As sobering as this reality may be, it hasn't stamped out man's search for meaning or our desire to love and be loved. In the midst of all the uncertainty, Tyler Hook's "Let's Go" is an invitation to hope.
