The song title is emblematic of our need for a river of hope to carry us through these troubling times.This ‘Avant Americana’ single asks us all to pool together, climb aboard, and catch the flow of the river of hope.The music suggests a compelling journey ahead and creates the flow with inventive textures that carry the listener on to river waters. The haunting hypnotic track and uplifting message of the lyric combine to create a mysterious Pacific Northwest ambience. Plenty of vocal work from Hostetler and Cribbs, who are the only musicians on this track as they trade off telling the story of the river. Hostetler was awarded 2019 Best Singer Songwriter by LA Music Critic. Cribbs grew up in Ireland where he first began working in a recording studio.

A funky bluesy rocker with 'get down' bass and guitars alongside an evocative lyric and stirring vocal creates a biting commentary on 'me first' culture. Hostetler continues a string of 2019 singles by releasing his third solo effort after the 2018 Heart Radio album release. This time the singer-songwriter crosses into social commentary supported by a hybrid soulful rock blues groove. Joseph Timmons of Indie Pulse Review comments that Hostetler was a "powerful driving force in Karen Lawrence and Blue By Nature and is known as a 'Spiritually Guided' artist by his contemporaries." The track was recorded and produced by Hostetler and mixed by Robbie Cribbs at Soundtrap Studios.
