After their performance in front of luminaries and other organizations, the band was approached by members of the local chapter of the Canadian Mental Health Association, who were impressed by their music and invited them to play an upcoming CMHA event in Calgary.

“Looking at the logistics of it, it was like, ‘OK, it’s in January, we’re going to have months to prepare for this, let’s frickin’ write a song,’ ” Jones says, noting they pitched the idea of a song to raise awareness to the organization, and they were onboard, with the opportunity for the CMHA to use it in an promotional campaigns and obvious benefit.

It is, Jones says, in keeping with the perception of the band as one that’s “sensitive and honest,” and, musically, has that warmth, melody and easygoing charm that fans and followers have come to expect from the charming ensemble.
