ABOUT “LANDSCAPES” (Apr 20, 2018)
Landscapes has an underlying theme about leaving the places that have shaped in exchange for self exploration and discovery. Jarrett’s life has taken him from Ontario to BC to The Yukon, and he captures the visual beauty and uniqueness of it all. It’s an understanding that these places and people in them hold answers to the questions surrounding the person you’ve become “Landscapes change, people stay the same.” With new surroundings we take on new experiences, struggles and growth - but returning to these deeply familiar environments, we reflect upon that which has made us who we are.
ABOUT THE LONG WAR:
After being away from music for a long time, songwriter Jarrett was pulled back in when old friend and current bandmate Chad invited him to perform with him as a duo in Vancouver. On one of those days of rehearsal leading up to the show Jarrett presented a new unfinished song called “Breathe In Breathe Out”. Chad wrote a verse and completed the bridge which would turn out to be their first collaboration and eventually would go on to win The 2017 CBC Searchlight and propel them forward. Music is a part of all members of The Long War as individuals but as a group they share the same philosophies and together work hard to serve the song and the band.
