“Wind” by Healing Potpourri

Healing Potpourri is the project of singer/songwriter Simi Sohota. This summer, he releases Paradise via Run For Cover Records (Young Guv, Camp Cope, Narrow Head, Turnover). Along with the news Healing Potpourri has shared lead-single “Wind.” Paradise was co-produced by Sean O’Hagan (Stereolab, The High Llamas. O’Hagan co-produced the record along with engineer Jason Kick (whose work includes Mild High Club and Sonny & The Sunsets).

Healing Potpourri’s previous album–and Run For Cover Records debut–Blanket of Calm was released in the spring of 2020 to a very different world than the one it was written in. “When Covid hit, like a lot of people, I got depressed and scared,” Sohota explains. “Our record had just come out but we couldn’t do anything. We weren’t able to get together or play shows. So many people were talking about suddenly having free time to work on things and be creative, but I just wasn’t playing music at all.” After a few months, he decided to combat his creative rut by booking studio time with producer/engineer and longtime friend Jason Kick (Mild High Club, Marinero, Sonny & The Sunsets). “I was just trying to force myself out of it so I started going to the studio with Jason once a week. And it worked! I would bring in fragments that I’d be working on at home and then we would start arranging in the studio. We couldn’t get the whole band together so a lot of it was smaller by necessity.”
