Lady A kicked off our very first Superstar Mini Concert with three songs including “Boots“, a glimpse into their album “Ocean“, and life at home during the quarantine. Here’s a few things they had to say!
Charles wrote “Boots” while he was on the beach with songwriter Ross Copperman. It was a simple idea where “these boots are never walking out on you” instead of “these boots are made for walking.” It’s the “rocker” on the album and they can’t wait to play it live!
Dave shared how personal this album was for them, they felt vulnerable and dug deep. They’ve been a band for 13 years now so there’s a lot of story telling about their families and the ups and downs of their career.
When recording “What I’m Leaving For” the meaning was so present for the band with leaving their families for tour. Hillary shares that they want their children to understand why they leave because what they do is their calling and they love it. She wants her kids to grow up and chase their dream and do what they are called to do as well. Now, more than ever with all of our first responders and essential workers keeping us safe and healthy there’s an even new meaning to the song.
Hillary has been filling her days spending quality time with her young daughters which has been fun, but also challenging at times. She understands this is a time to reflex, pray, and trust that everything will be okay.
