Alma Mater Share Debut Single ‘Fading Moon’

Oregon Folk duo Alma Mater, consisting of Dirk Sullivan and Andrew Paul Woodworth, have just shared their official debut single Fading Moon, a dreamy indie-folk song out now via Butter Knees Records. 
Wrapped around upbeat pop-inspired folk melodies, Fading Moon is a relatable song about the fear of leaving the ones you love behind, trying to deal with the pain and anxiety that comes from such fear. It also shows how music can have a healing effect in our lives. This relatable, beautifully-written song is flawlessly delivered through expressive, passionate vocals that are backed by hypnotic acoustic guitar melodies, lush strings and steady beat that together create a warm and intimate atmosphere.

Speaking about the song, Andrew Paul Woodworth said, 
I was never afraid of dying until I had a child. Fading Moon, on the surface, seems like a love letter to my two baby boys. But, in reality, it’s a means to comfort myself from my overwhelming fear of leaving them behind when I die. When pure and intense love is experienced, there is a level of pain associated with it. I’ve never been more happy, but I’ve never been more scared. So this seemingly sweet, folky ditty is really a pretty dark, anxious proclamation.
