The opening song on Light Over There's EP is Where Memories Live, a song about dementia and its effects on family and friends
A unlikely pair of two musicians, Light Over There is made up of veteran Minneapolis rocker Rex Haberman (from the critically acclaimed War Poets), and Ailee Henderson, from Galway, Ireland.
Haberman and Henderson met through Twitter in June 2014, connected by email, then starting writing together across the Atlantic. By late 2014, they had five fully composed original songs ready to be recorded. The band selected for the project included established Nashville musicians, and Aileen’s vocals were recorded in Galway, Ireland with Ray Diamond while all the other instruments were laid down at Drum Farm Studio in Menomonie, Wisconsin. Still, Rex and Aileen have still never met in person! The songs were then mixed by five time Grammy winner Joe Baldridge and mastered by another five time Grammy winner Richard Dodd.
This collection of five Americana tracks holds many stories. "Where Memories Live," off of their self-titled debut, is about dementia and the toll it takes on families, Solitude, Gratitude is about dealing with a chronic illness and Mountain Song tells the tale of finding your way despite life's injustices. Aileen and Rex's project is called Light Over There, a reference to these two songwriters finding inspiration across the sea that separates them.
