“I wrote many of these songs on the guitar during the lockdown phase of the pandemic. My songwriting mood was reflective, and I found the storytelling framework and melancholy sound of acoustic country music to be a perfect fit creatively.” Willow Woodward
“Ciclos was a challenge, an outlet, and, above all, a vehicle to transmit the ideas that I think are most important to face life and its changes.” – Tomás Segura
“The 2020 Pandemic hit. I had time on my hands, and a desire to dance, so I began to write funky music. But gathering a horn section together to spread the virus was not a great idea. So I turned to the computer, and started churning out my danceable grooves via electronics. This was major shift in direction from my previous genre of acapella/classical/children’s/video-game. So I invented an EDM avatar for myself, MCMGM.” Gunnar Madsen
“This track is all about discovering yourself and learning what you want… With the acoustic release, I wanted a song that focuses only on vocals and piano, to really show off the alternate meaning behind the lyrics and how vulnerable they really are.”
“This song was written in early June, I had the instrumental for a few weeks but I was just sitting with it, vibing with it. My influences were a combination of Korean hip-hop, which I find very melodic and felt would groove well with the beat, and the fact that my city, Toronto, was opening up again after the pandemic. This meant dating was back on, and I was thinking of going back to the bars and lounges I used to frequent before lockdown.” Death By Tapioca
