CLICK HERE to watch the official lyric video.

“‘Waiting For Lightning’ was a song that started pouring out of me late one night,” explains lead vocalist/guitarist Brady Parks. “I remember sitting in my room with my guitar and this visual of lightning kept coming to my mind. At its core, this song is about feeling like you are waiting for something so rare and spectacular. It’s about setting the fear of the unknown aside and stepping out into the storm. It’s about holding on despite challenges that arise. We hope this song can be a reminder to hold on to hope and to not let go of the things that matter most to you.”

The male/female quartet – Brady Parks [guitar, vocals], Sydney Macfarlane [keys, vocals], Cam Brannelly [drums] and Megan Parks [violin] – bloom like never before on their aptly titled independent new studio album, Wildflower, the follow-up to their 2017 release Places. The 15-track collection, produced and mixed by longtime collaborator Scott Wiley, features the band’s best songwriting to date and a variety of sounds and styles, as well as a lot of heart, as evidenced by the title track “Wildflower” (CLICK HERE to listen and watch the official music video) and previously released single “Time,” which urges for patience and perseverance through struggle (CLICK HERE to watch the video, the visual continuation from the “Wildflower” video).
