“I didn’t set out to write “That Spell” based on any central theme, but instead, I wrote songs about the state of the world around me. The last four years has left us to think about what we really stand for and the issues we need to speak out against. Some of these songs explicitly respond to the problems of inequality, global warming, sexism, and other current issues while other songs are moments in my life I personally experienced. When I read the poem “The Wait,” by Rainer Maria Rilke this March, it struck me as the perfect poem to describe the situation we were all experiencing. When I watched the movie “Parasite” I was inspired by the way water was used as a metaphor for class inequality and felt compelled to write “Water Flowing Downward” the next day. Celilo was written after I watched a documentary called, “Damnation” that spoke to the selfish ways humans have consumed the earth. And “Carolina” is a song I wrote because I remembered the way my Mom would sing along to James Taylor in the car. These songs are a collection of thoughts and while many of them mean something certain to me, my hope is that the listener can find these songs meaningful in their own personal way.” – Andrea von Kampen
