“I wrote ‘Old Barn Owl’ with my sister, Cate Graves, under a star-filled sky in West Texas,” Sample says. “We were attending a songwriting retreat where we learned a new method: cutting up old books into bits and pieces and then creating new lyrical phrases from them. My sister and I sat under a fall moon and wrote the chorus. As we started singing the lines, something cathartic was happening. It was quiet. It was healing. We reflected on what can happen in nature, with no one to judge you and the acceptance that you are worthy just as you are. You never know what kind of song you’re going to write, but sometimes when you’re in a mystic place you get these kinds of odes to nature.
That sounds like a magical experience. It’s true you never know what you’re going to write and you never know what will spark inspiration. ‘Old Barn Owl‘ certainly proves that!
