We have a new video for 'The Crossing' off the Wildwood Echoes album! We're excited to be sharing this video, filmed entirely on location at the The Valley Wilderness Retreat in Tasmania. Here's a brief insight into the inner workings of the song from the songwriter:"So I wouldn't really describe myself as a story teller even though narrative elements are ever present. My songs are a vehicle which I use in order to articulate, in as simple a way as possible, a vibe, a feeling, an observation. A quest if you like to answer internal questions which I am grappling with and endeavoring to reconcile. Some are light, some are dark, some have equal portions of both. A balanced dance on the edge of a knife.
The Crossing is a theme which has been flickering around the edges of my consciousness for the past twenty or so years. The bulk of the lyric content came together back when I was a Pale Rider and musically it has tried on various costumes and played dress ups whenever it knocked on my door and demanded attention. With the 'Men From Earth' project it felt like the right fit and 'The Crossing' had found a home.
Crossroads, choices, forks at the end of winding roads, pathways, freedom, wild places. Letting go of programming, if only for a brief moment, that was the vibe that was niggling around the edges every time 'The Crossing' turned up at my door whispering, 'come out and play, join us in the wild places, come back to family. 'Follow me, just let it be, I'll set you free.'
The band did ceremony, we buried ourselves in the earth. We became a part of the The Valley and joined the wild places that had birthed the songs. We filmed the journey through The Valley which became the video for 'The Crossing'."
