Before Barbed Wire

“Before Barbed Wire” is out today. Previously released as an exclusive for the Amazon Original series, this now widely-released track is an homage to the late American contemporary pianist George Winston. We got to know this beautiful piece of music when we were children listening to the Winston version from the seminal album ‘Plains.’ There was always an openness to his music, something at once from the Western American landscape and the human heart.
