Wildwood is Katie Dahl‘s newest and most personal release to date, as it explores life in 2019 through the lens of Door County, Wisc., where her family has lived for six generations. She’s currently raising the seventh. The album was produced by JT Nero of Birds of Chicago and features his partner in that act, Allison Russell, on four tracks including this song.
“We filmed on location in both southern California (Red Rock Canyon State Park and Joshua Tree National Park) and Door County, Wisconsin,” Dahl says. ‘Eva (the main character) is an actor based in Milwaukee, Rebecca (the person you never quite see in the California footage) is an actor/filmmaker based in L.A., and Charolette (who plays Helen, the blonde object of desire, in the Wisconsin parts) is a civilian.”
