BACKSTORY BEHIND THE SONG:

This song was written during the height of the 2020 lockdown. My bandmates and I just couldn’t take it anymore in terms of not making music together, so I, along with my drummer, Jim, and the other guitar player in our band, Richard, set up a group video chat via Zoom.

What started out as an unintentional therapy session chatting about our lives during lockdown turned into a very intentional writing session and we cracked out that song in short order. “I Hope We Make A Change” was a song that created a sense of release for all of the heaviness we were feeling at the time and it still gives me much comfort today.

I hope you enjoy the tune and this short little backstory. You’ll come to find that one of my favorite things about being a musician is sharing the inner thoughts behind the music we make.
