Americana Highways is hosting this premiere of 3 Pairs of Boots’ song “Leap of Faith,” from their upcoming release Mighty Love. The album was recorded and produced by Andrew Stern, mixed by Eddie Caipo and Rob Beaton; and mastered by Rob Beaton.
“Leap of Faith” is stringed instruments by Andrew Stern; vocals by Laura Arias; drums by Randy Cooke; keyboards by Dave Cohen; and background Vocals by Greg Perkins. With an exciting and dramatic rootsy intro, 3 Pairs of Boots wraps its core existential lyrics in bright musical paper. “Take a leap of faith, throw caution to the wind,” and reflect on how qualified we are, any one of us, to be someone’s actual parent.
A story with sort of a double meaning; the more personal intimate side are the questions that confronted us, and perhaps most parents, when their child is born. When we brought our son home from the hospital years ago, we looked at each other and basically said “Now what?”.
We had no experience at raising a child. That’s when your values, your beliefs, your common sense, kicks in. And you just have to take it one day at a time, and recognize that you will make mistakes, to learn from those mistakes, as you try to raise that child to be a good, decent, honest, loving person.
The bigger part of the song reflects upon what can go right, or wrong, when raising a child. Where do their good qualities come from? And where does the hatred and prejudices that people have come from? The child starts out as a blank slate and learns from their parents, which to us is a tremendous honor and responsibility.
At a certain point, when deciding whether to have a child, you can rationalize so many aspects but in the end, you just have to take the leap, not knowing where it will take you. — Andrew Stern
