After a 7 year stint as a drummer for Ani DiFranco, Andy Stochansky taught himself guitar and started writing songs. Not long after, he was spotted in a bar and quickly signed to RCA / Victor. After releasing and touring two albums, he moved to Los Angeles to write for other artists. Though his writing career was successful, he woke up one day and realized he had to create for himself again, so White Elephant Orchestra was born.
Stochansky shares of the single:
“Every time I would look at the news or look around people I was talking to, everybody looked completely down and out. These times have financially and mentally hit a lot of people very hard, so it’s a song about taking somebody and escaping with them …even for just a few minutes.
In saying that I also had to make sure that the lyric “I’m not giving up just need a holiday.. take us higher even for a day” had to be in there because some people can never give up and have that luxury.”
