As choppers whirred over Los Angeles in the wake of George Floyd’s murder in 2020, Ethan Buckner could feel the pulse of anger at injustice boiling over in the streets outside his window in Venice as he wrote Eyes on the Prize.

As choppers whirred over Los Angeles in the wake of George Floyd’s murder in 2020, Ethan Buckner could feel the pulse of anger at injustice boiling over in the streets outside his window in Venice as he wrote Eyes on the Prize. The uprisings evoked age-old indignation, too familiar grief, and yet there was also a hopeful energy, that something had finally clicked, and change was within our collective grasp. Eyes on the Prize, with its lyrical homage to Alice Wine’s 1956 civil rights hymn, seeks to capture and amplify that revolutionary energy in an indie folk/pop anthem for our turbulent and consequential times.

"What will you have written on your grave?," posed in 'All We Got Is Time', is less about death than life; a challenge to be our truest selves in our limited years on this floating rock. Perched on Venice Beach in late 2019, co-writers Tom Sless (@tomsless) & Ethan Buckner (@mnchildmusic) pondered this fundamental question. Shortly after, our lives - and the world - turned upside down. 'Time' is an anthem born through personal & collective hardships of the pandemic, produced in LA, Oakland, Portland, New York, & Fort Worth.
