Masorti just released the new single "Arrowhead" from the forthcoming "80 East" EP (out in April) and to celebrate we asked Phillip Masorti to tell us about the track. Here is the story:

The inspiration for writing Arrowhead came at a time when I was really struggling with some personal life issues and I was particularly concerned with the amount of time I was spending with my children. I would recall all the things my father did with me and I would compare whether I was providing the same type of quality experiences for my children. One of the things that my father did with me that I remember very fondly is we would look for arrowheads after plowing the fields of the family farm that was in Central Pennsylvania in an area that the Indians inhabited for thousands of years until about 1800.
