The two met, when Rusty did some mixing for the cover band called the Solutions in which Marit was playing at the time. Collaboration started when Rusty decided to write a song for Marti. An all-night writing session was a turning point and came up with a triumphant and soulful beginning – the track “Say You.”
Rusty: If it was going well after a few hours, we would stay until we had a finished song to take home. There’s an energy and excitement on the day you’re writing and recording a new song that will almost guaranteed be absent if you come back to it another day.
Disovery of that energy was an ultimate push for the band in a direction of the full album. Marti’s stunning voice supported by Rusty original arrangements became the soul of the emmerging album.
“Say You” is the song that really got things started, but “Hummingbird” stands out as a key song on the album.
Marti: The day we started working on ‘Hummingbird’ Hummingbird we actually didn’t have a song in mind. Rusty just started playing a few chords and I realized that I had a song that sort of fit with it.
So the faith was smiling to the world back than as we got this masterpiece to listen...
