 I WROTE THIS SONG: Justin Wade Tam: Great Divide was written after touring west to Colorado for our first long tour.  We were in complete awe of the beautiful Western Range of the Rocky Mountains.  It’s was so exciting to be pursuing music for a career but also anxiety inducing.  We tried to lyrically capture the images from the tour and also our feeling of hope for a future in music.
