Insight was written entirely by Alex Hamilton, and was the initial starting point for Wazmo as a band. Inspiration for the album came from a variety of places, but speaks mostly about struggling with depression, and finding a way to push past the darkness and find happiness and success. Another big influence was the book “the Celestine prophecy” by James Redfield. Like the book the the song Shift speaks about noticing coincidences in your life, and seeing the greater meaning behind them.
