about

This 'Story Edition' of VanWyck's latest album 'God is in the Detour' mixes together the songs of the album and spoken word pieces she wrote for a theatre tour that was cancelled due to Covid. It’s an attempt to share the album in a different way now that playing live is not possible.

VanWyck: Now that people can’t come to shows to hear these songs performed, I’ve looked for a new way to share them. Instead of a deluxe edition, or an acoustic edition, I came up with this story edition, a new format, placing the songs in a narrative that I wrote for a theatre performance. During this show I would take the audience along a dream I once had where I travelled to an unknown destination. The songs describe moments on that journey. The spoken word pieces describe the journey itself. By placing the songs in a different framework, a new layer of meaning is added. I hope it’s something listeners will enjoy taking in as a whole.
