M. Hofmann is a singer/songwriter from Sydney who grew up playing music in various bands, but now finds himself going solo. His sound crosses Americana, Heartland Rock, and British Jangle.
This song is about a moment in time when you need to break free of something, maybe a circumstance or relationship that's holding you back.

And the night drifts away...
