Welcome to the New Year with NEW MUSIC from Status/Non-Status!
The January 3rd EP offers 3 beautiful reflections on the search for home, those left behind when we leave, and those lost far too early, highlighted by a title track calling to a more natural way of existing but trapped within the busy people, streets and lights of a broken city. January 3rd follows up the critically acclaimed Surely Travel LP with a selection of additional material drawn from the same fruitful sessions. Collected together these songs document a sentimental journey that sounds just right on the cold winds of winter.

Notes on the songs from Adam Sturgeon:
“January 3rd is a song of reflection; a call to a more natural way of existing but trapped within the busy people, streets and lights of a broken city. I wrote this while living in Flint, Michigan and it was the first song we recorded for Surely Travel, where in a song we are all just trying to be free.
Johnny’s Song could be about any kid, anywhere. In this case a specific kid – Johnny, who was trying his best to persevere despite a harsh reality at home, each day bringing a new challenge but finding hope within the cold terrain of the Arctic tundra and being on the land.
Glide is a dedication to our dear mother, mentor and friend who slipped into the ice and never came home. Emotions got the better of me through tracking so I walked away from the song and left it unfinished. Still can’t listen to it to this day.”
