Quote from Robert Delong

Emerging from this whirlwind, DeLong sought out a much-needed reprieve. So, he relocated from Los Angeles to Denver for the duration of 2016.

“I had been on the road constantly since 2012,” he recalls. “I was touring throughout the entire composition of In The Cards. I had no chance to reflect, so I took some time off. For me, I needed to collect myself and figure out where I wanted to go, what I wanted to write about, and what I wanted to do next. In the middle of this period, I started flying back out to L.A. for writing sessions. I quickly realized that’s where my life is. I’m more creatively connected in Los Angeles. I have more friends who work on music. It’s the nexus of the industry. I felt the draw. It pulled me back in 2017. Immediately, all of these songs came together.”
