"Out of the Wilderness"
Official Music Video


“It’s a song I co-wrote during this pandemic with my producer Colin Linden. The song is about keeping your head up, keep the faith we’re going to come out of all this “there’s a new dawn rising, and it shines like gold….hard times are leaving we’ve done enough grieving now we’ll shine like gold.”
- Jim Weider
"The song was originally written for Rick Danko when I was writing with Colin Linden for The Band's Jericho album and was never used for that album. Colin had a big hand and footprint on this record. We go back, so there is a comfortableness working with him."
- Jim Weider
