Ned Luberecki and Stephen Mougin, who perform as the duo "Nedski & Mojo", release their new single "A River To Cross". The song premiered today on Hawkesbury Radio on Mike Kear's show "Music From Foggy Hollow" in Australia, and is available for downloading and streaming HERE.
Stephen Mougin shares: "The concept for "A River To Cross” came about as Ned and I were cycling in the Shelby Bottoms greenway, here in Nashville.There is a terrific bridge across the Cumberland river, but it takes a bit of “doing” to ride up the hill to the bridge, then more “doing” to go up the hill on the other side. We always debated how much “doing” our adventure would include.
We had the line “A river to cross and another bridge to burn” and began to think about other bridges in our lives. Ned began reflecting on his sobriety and the memories leading up to his decision to make that change. He told me that he spent tons of time running from one situation to another, finally realizing “you can’t run away from yourself."
Trying to paint a picture of the characters frustration and determination, we built the verse melody and chord progression to be an ever-changing target. It begins on a minor five chord and ends on a flat seven, totally on the brink of disaster until the chorus hits with resolve.
I’m proud of Ned and his willingness to tell his story, directly or through song. We aren’t ready to put out a full album just yet, but we felt like it was time for this song to be heard.”
