Americana Highways brings you this premiere of “Boy With Gray Eyes” from his debut release That We Could Find A Way To Be, due out on September 13th. That We Could Find A Way To Be was produced by Dana Billings and Andrew VanNorstrand, engineered and mixed by Dana Billings. “Boy With Gray Eyes” is Andrew VanNorstrand on vocals, guitars, fiddle, and bass; Dana Billings on piano; Kailyn Wright on vocals; and Anna Patton on clarinet.
In a song about hope and hesitation, VanNorstrand constructs comforting, introspective guitar sounds, and the low vocals, clarinet and fiddle are the icing on the cake.
This is a song about the tension between who we are and how we show ourselves to the world. It can be a really hard thing to reconcile. I believe we are meant to be the truest versions of ourselves that we know how to express. For me, that’s more a process than a proclamation.
I always knew I wanted to feature Anna’s clarinet on this song. I love the way she weaves with the fiddle and guitars, pulling you along with the lyrics. It has such a nice flow. — Andrew Van Norstrand
