Float is a song that was inspired by a conversation with a friend of mine named Jeremy Courtney. Jeremy lives in Iraq with his family. He told me that after a hard day of work, he will put his headphones on and listen to songs that bring hope. It’s just a song, but then again music can change the world, I know it’s changed mine. So let “Float” be a song of encouragement, to reach higher far above the patterns of this world!
