“The White Lodge” is the final track on Here. Home.
One Saturday morning last September, we had setup in the practice space and were just messing around when Chet started playing the main bass riff of the song. Dusty jumped right in and then I began to do some swelling. Within minutes we had essentially created the song. It is a song that fully represents what Deer Leap began as; the three of us just having a good time playing music together. Seeing what happens when we just play.
When we went into the studio to mix the tracks and I heard the keys that Ryan had added for the first time, I had chills. This was a song that we were so afraid of messing up in the studio because of how raw it was when we wrote it. I am so happy with the end result and I think it is my favorite song that we have written together.
