NASHVILLE, TN – Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist WILDWOOD is thrilled to
release her fourth single, “Hourglass,” on September 21, 2018. As in her past three
releases – including “Moonrise” which has been streamed over half a million times on
Spotify – WILDWOOD plays all the live instruments on the recording.
“Hourglass” features WILDWOOD playing violin and viola lines that dance around a delicate
piano. With producer Brandon Metcalf, WILDWOOD turned what started as a simple
piano/vocal ballad into a lush, cinematic track. In her own words: “I wrote ‘Hourglass’
after midnight one night in my studio apartment in downtown Nashville. The lyrics,
melody, and chords just flooded out in a few hours. What I love most about this song is
how we built out a track from the original piano and vocal performances I recorded that
night, so it’s full of emotion.”
“Hourglass” is genre-defying, just like WILDWOOD herself: a mix of Americana & pop,
sweet & somber. With lines like, “Some things aren’t meant to last / only be memories
in the past,” this song is sure to make listeners stop in their tracks & reflect.
