NEW SINGLE AND VIDEO: “Evening Will Come”

We are thrilled to announce the release of our new single Evening Will Come and our NPR Music Tiny Desk Contest entry!

Cinematographer/director: Mark Farmwald

In the brush strokes of a single day, this ballad hauntingly paints the love of a lifetime while imagining its loss. In her writing process, Maria drew inspiration from numerous artists:

Jane Kenyon‘s poem Otherwise delineates the shining gifts of one ordinary day and ends with a stark acknowledgement:

But one day, I know,
it will be otherwise.

Another of Kenyon’s poems, Let Evening Come, describes the inevitability of nightfall and of death:

Let it come, as it will, and don’t
be afraid.

Whereas Gordon Lightfoot’s Song for a Winter’s Night (which we cover) traces an emotional journey through nighttime hours, “Evening Will Come” begins before dawn and follows the changing light to the day’s end.

And Over the Rhine’s All Of It Was Music inspired not only the song’s meter and form, but also its intimate tenor.

Cinematographer/director Mark Farmwald filmed our Tiny Desk Contest entry video of the song in the lovely home of Heidi Wenger Yoder, who assisted throughout, draping windows, moving lights, providing and arranging props, taking photos, and bringing us drinks when we had to stand by in position. Her son Ian gorgeously captured the themes of our song on their dining room chalkboard wall.

This song reminds us to hold tight to each other and all our loved ones.
