Doug's notes about the song: "Tomorrow on Her Mind" - First write was in 2008. I put this on Blue Sky Sliding, too. The first line is the schoolyard mantra about teachers on the last day of school. I probably got the idea around the last day of school that year and made it about a girl who explores her newly found freedom.

Sapphire Creek is Doug Hanks and Julie Wuertz. The duo also performs as part of The Silverados, a 7-piece southern California country cover band. “We just wanted to do something a little different,” says Julie. “We’ve sung off and on as a duo for various events for many years.” Doug adds, “Now, we’re finally recording it.”

JULIE – Though she is from the 80's generation, Julie's musical roots go much deeper than that. Born and raised in Southern California, she grew up performing in a great music program at her church which allowed her to sing, act, go on tours, and even record children's albums. As a featured singer with The Silverados, her interaction with an audience keeps them riveted. "One of the best things at the Concerts in the Parks is having all of the girls come up and sing with us for a song. What a blast!" When Julie isn't hanging with the band, she is with her husband and two (nearly grown) children, and you can still find her singing on a Sunday morning at the same church she attended as a child.

DOUG – Music started early for both Julie and Doug. Doug started at age 14 when he sang with a folk group. At 18, he formed a his own folk group that traveled through northern California. Later, he paired with Jim Blanco to form Blanco & Hanks – singing all the hits of the 70’s while accompanying themselves on acoustic guitars. Throughout the 80's and 90's Doug traveled extensively. In 2011, he released Blue Sky Sliding featuring Julie on three songs – a preview of things to come. Doug also released Walking in the Father’s Love in 1982, which received airplay in 55 markets across the US.

Both California natives, Doug and Julie were influenced by the soft-rock of Laurel Canyon and evolving folk music– Bob Dylan, James Taylor, Jackson Browne, Eagles, Joni Mitchell, Carole King, and their contemporaries. And the country favorites of their parents – Cash, Williams, Owens, and Haggard -- added to the mix.

As part of The Silverados, they have shared the stage with Tim McGraw, Montgomery Gentry, John Michael Montgomery, and Shiela E.

The song features Drums on Demand loop tracks.
