Ash and Ember

Album: Life Imitating Life (2014)
  • This was released as the first single from Life Imitating Life. "Ash and Ember came from a very pure and honest part of me," Augustana frontman Dan Layus told USA Today. "It was one of the most satisfying experiences I've ever had writing a song. I really wanted to both push myself into a more challenging place lyrically and melodically while keeping myself in a place that felt natural and sincere."
