Fall & Winter[edit]

Awards[edit]

The Fall & Winter compilation was nominated for a Dove Award for Pop/Contemporary Album of the Year at the 40th GMA Dove Awards.[11]

Sound[edit]

As the title indicates, the sound of this EP reflects the effect of fall time. The mood overall is melancholy, yet maintains the warmth of an autumn day. It varies from the cooler tones of the "Winter" EP.[original research?]

Other appearances[edit]

  • The sixth track from the EP, "My Love Goes Free", can be heard in the 2007 motion picture Bella.
  • "The Moon Is a Magnet" was considered for Switchfoot's sixth studio album, "Oh! Gravity.", but didn't make the final cut.
  • "The Cure for Pain" was played in the season finale of the popular ABC drama Grey's Anatomy
