You can listen to the original version on “Wilderness Calls” from Jared & The Mill’s debut full-length, This Story Is No Longer Available, if you PRESS HERE.
Frontman Jared Kolesar describes the song as “sort of a bargaining dialogue with the self, the self-reflection of ‘I may have done things I regret, but that doesn’t make me a bad person’. I have a firm belief that in order to truly be a good person, you have to have things in your past you wish you hadn’t done, it builds empathy and opens up the mind when one experiences that kind of emotion. And I hope this video introduces that thought to the viewer at least a little bit.”
The band included Monica Martin, formerly of PHOX, to assist on vocals for this video. “It was special for me to have Monica come in and sing this song in the video with me. I’ve loved singing with her since we’ve met, and she’s become a really great friend of mine; plus, I think having a girl’s voice helps tell the story with a bit more clarity.”
