Because Jaret lives in California, he and I only get the opportunity to work together about once a year. I always look forward to working with him even more because of that.
Jaret and I got together for 2 days before Christmas, while he was on his holiday break, to record this song. I knew this song was very close and delicate to him because it touched upon life events of his childhood.
We discussed many options about what type of production would be right for this song to let it speak and convey his story.
Besides the acoustic guitar and lead vocal we decided to go for a very simplistic yet haunting approach by adding the background vocals and organ. For me it has turned into one of those songs that gives me goose bumps every time I hear it.
