Song Lyrics: Wild Ride

“…I wrote the song just as I was getting ready to head over to record ‘Fire This Love’ album in Nashville. Recording the album was completely a left turn for me, so the lyrics encapsulated what I felt at the time - that I was leaving the comfort zone and jumping out on a wild adventure.“ [Photo Credit: Vladimir Vujeva]

Song Lyrics: Tell It To The Sky

“The idea of the line ‘Tell It To The Sky’ came about when I overheard my Mum talking to my Dad about the weather and asking if it was going to rain - Mum had been caught out a few times hanging some clothes out to dry on the clothesline. Dad didn’t think that it was going to rain and gave Mum the all clear. I distinctly remember my Mum gesturing towards a slightly greyish sky and uttering the words, ‘Tell It To The Sky’. I wrote down those words and the song basically wrote itself from there.” David Willersdorf [Photo Credit: Pierre Van Crombrugghe]

Song Lyrics: Lifeboat

“I wrote the song ‘Lifeboat’ after reading a number of accounts of people who had been lost at sea. Some were simply sailing along and a freak wave came out of the darkness and left them treading water far from home, not sure of their fate. I read stories of great heroism and the triumph of the human spirit. The stories and accounts really resonated with me on many levels.” [Photo Credit: Ivana Cajina]
