“Winds”: Collaboration with Johanna Olson

Collaborations are funny things. Sometimes you learn to really stretch yourself and adapt to a different sense of musicality, while other times, the collaboration is so natural you don’t even have to think about what you’re doing. This collaboration was definitely a case of the latter.

About a year ago, my friend Jordan Leibel approached me about adding some electric guitar to a piece of music that he and vocalist Johanna Olson had written together. Soon after, we all found ourselves at Music City Studios along with drummer/bassist Scott Melnyk. Time was limited, and within the span of two hours we put together all the elements for this song. I later took the tracks home with me, and, with some help from the golden ears of Mr. Leibel, came up with this mix.
