Americana Highways is hosting this premiere of Cass Cwik and the Small Gas Engines’ song “I’m Giving This To Sara,” from their forthcoming album Wise, Wild, & Free. The album was recorded and mixed by Doug Malone at Jamdek Recording Studio in Chicago, IL.
“I’m Giving This To Sara” is Cass Cwik on acoustic guitar and vocals; Ben Vogel on electric guitar; Cam Cowles on percussion; Allen Wynn on drums; and Adam Sammakia on electric bass guitar. Cass Cwik and the Small Gas Engines make some easy country rock music in the style of greats like Dylan and Petty. This one describes the nerves in the beginning of a relationship and hoping you’ve captured the heart of the one you love and doing a bang up job of it too.
This song is about something I found on a trip to Colorado and felt funny giving it to my girlfriend, Sara, not knowing whether or not she’d like it. The song is very self explanatory, but more or less it’s about vulnerability in the earlier stages of a courtship. We cut this track completely live at Jamdek Recording Studio in summer 2021. — Cass Cwik
