Hector is another song borne of the Musical Telephone project. Originally written by Tanner Haid, Hector is the soulful tale of a school custodian's current station in life. Tanner's influence on The Efts has been profound, and we were excited to have an opportunity to cover one of his works. Again, we are overjoyed to be participating in Musical Telephone. Our eternal thanks go out to all of the members of this talented group of songwriters.
