Comprised of singer-songwriters and multi-instrumentalists Darren Guyaz and Beth Wesche, March to May incorporates a broad palette of harp, piano, strings, and horns into their sound. Together, they develop a delicate world set somewhere between that eternal, magnetic push and pull between darkness and light. Swirling melodies envelop themselves around cinematic arrangements and impassioned deliveries to create a naturally enthralling soundscape for listeners to unapologetically be lost in.
Such is the case with their utterly compelling torch-bearer, ‘If I Told You I Could Stay’, as well as its accompanying music video. For Folk’s Sake is privileged to premiere this moving piece of art today on behalf of the duo, whose debut full-length, Through the Night, released around this time last year.
Beth Wesche tells For Folk’s Sake…
“We wanted to capture that feeling of going back in your mind to the choices you’ve made and wondering if maybe, just maybe, things could have gone differently. It would be so much easier if decisions were cut and dried — right choice, wrong choice, end of story. But they’re not, particularly when the heart is involved. This song is a bit of an internal conflict around right and wrong choices, and the way they linger in our minds long after our decisions are made.”
