“Into the Wind” is an encouraging song that dances with mortality. Mary Scholz’s songbird vocals add a dose of comfort and extend a hand of optimism to the darkness of grief.
What a day we had for filming! It was 110 degrees in Joshua Tree, we had blown a flat tire on the way out, had to replace equipment stolen out of a parked car before arriving…and yet found peaceful centering once camera and sound were rolling, despite the heat of the afternoon. That’s what the song is ultimately about – taking a breath, centering yourself, and finding peace in the midst of the madness of life. — Mary Scholz
