When I heard about the project it immediately came into my mind to pair
Cori’s stellar singing with Allegra’s remarkable songwriting. I’d known this
song for years & always thought it was an under appreciated gem.
When I presented it to Cori she immediately connected with the song
and the local sentiment behind it. Pulling in ace bass player and vocal
arranger, Markie, we attempted to re-imagine it as a rootsy, bluegrassy
vein.
