In December 2017, David and Andrea from Montreal indie-folk band Will Driving West were looking back on a year of professional disappointments, deals falling through, and the like.
They had not written a song in months. They couldn’t.
David listened to the Peaceful Piano playlist on Spotify in an effort to find some quiet space inside. A light bulb illuminated. He sat at the piano and wrote a song on the spot. He asked Andrea if she wanted to come and listen to it. She did, and then she sat at the piano and improvised something. David didn’t tell her, but he hit the record button. Another song was born.
Something had happened, moved, shifted. The sensation was new, but familiar. They hadn’t felt this good in a while.
A month later, David and Andrea released Lovers in No Mind's Land, the quiet tale of a husband and wife leaving their troublesome thoughts at the door, allowing for peaceful music to surface in a tranquil shelter they built inside themselves.
Coming full circle, their song Be, Leave was quickly added to Peaceful Piano and has since racked up more than 18 million streams!
The couple will be releasing one song a month in 2020. Their first single A Journey of a Thousand Miles in January was added to numerous playlists and is already at 400K streams barely a month after its release.
