“The album’s inspiration came from the fact that we always hashtag Oh, The Places You’ll Go! from Dr. Seuss, because we find ourselves in the most interesting situations. From there we got to thinking about the part that says ‘And remember that life’s A Great Balancing Act. And will you succeed? Yes! You will, indeed!’ We knew that was it, because life is a great balancing act and as long as we keep doing it we have no choice but to succeed.” – Sarah Shown
