“‘Forest Of My Soul’ was written in the face of struggle and turbulent times,” shares Sean Rodman. “It's about being lost and searching to find solace in the natural world outside of our own confines.”
Nathan Gurley add, “‘Forest Of My Soul’ holds true to our respect and reverence for the natural world and the inspiration we draw from it and our rural beginnings. We’ve had the luxury of time over the last two years for reflecting and honing in our craft. The new music we’ve written holds a multitude of pieces we’ve gathered along the journey and put together in a mosaic of themes, emotions, and stories. This is our first release from this collection and time.”
