Music in general is a representation of Wind. Sound is carried by the Wind bringing life to the music as it blows. When a strong gust hits you, you can’t help but move. Like the track, "Whirlwind Girl," written by Andrew Copeland, Ryan Newell, and Barry Dean, Wind represents someone whose presence is clearly felt upon our lives and is associated with the spirit or soul. With contributions from some of Nashville’s heavy-hitter songwriters, Sister Hazel embraces their roots and Florida music influences on “Wind.” Delivering exquisite musicianship and shining signature harmonies throughout, each song is a standout. From the upbeat, driving, “Come a Day,” and the comforting first single, “Small Town Living,” to the epic tender ballad, “In Two,” and the working man’s anthem, “Midnight Again,” the collectible EP is an exceptional addition to fan playlists. Wind Track List: 1. "Come A Day" 2. "Small Town Living" 3. "Whirlwind Girl" 4. "In Two" 5. "You'll be Safe Here" 6. "Midnight Again" 7. "Elements II" (I'm Free)
