While waiting to order her groceries online, Dana Herron says she was struck with an idea.

Herron often acts as a worship leader with Southland Church in Steinbach and has collaborated with her church before creating original music. This time, Herron says her new song is entirely her own.

"I have done a little bit of worship leading and writing of the past few years," she says.

Herron adds that she feels inclined to write more, but was facing a creative block.

"I have been wanting to write for the last little bit," she says. "In this quarantine-season, I just felt like the time was right."

Herron had been considering getting back into songwriting but could not find the right words.

As her own church was closed to the public, the worship leader has been home, caring for her new baby. Herron says that she was getting comfortable in her routine but noticed many others, like herself, were experiencing new things.

"I had never written a song where right after I felt like 'this is what I want to say," she says. "It felt really good to be able to be in the moment and be really proud and really excited to share (the song) with people."

Herron adds that she is not worried about what people think of the song, but hopes others can relate to it.

Recording the single was an interesting task for Herron. Due to distancing restrictions, she needed to record her song at home. As the mother of a nine-month-old baby, the best place to record was in an unexpected place: her bathroom.

With her first solo track completed, Herron is anticipating creating more music. 

"It really did start because of this one song."

While the artist does not have more music available yet, she is planning to release more worship songs by the end of the year.
