It had been commissioned for pianist Martha Mortensen Ahern and soprano Mela Dailey, in honor associated with the organizationвЂ™s 35th anniversary. While the topic they settled on with this track period originated from Dailey and Ahern.
вЂњThey wished to do songs about online dating,вЂќ claims Cote, who had been faced with composing the words. вЂњWithout being too literalistic in what an online profile that is dating seem like. It was taken by me as a cue.вЂќ
