I Surely Will Be Singing was inspired by the realization that bird life blossomed significantly during the pandemic because of less traffic, as people spent more time at home or outside during lockdown, they were more likely to notice that abundance. Also, that song talks about playing music not just because it’s a career,” Jutz tells us. “It talks about singing and playing and creating because you were created to do that. It’s a really simple song, too, musically and lyrically. We’re so influenced by old music that simplicity is something we’re always looking for – Thomm Jutz.
