Brian shared with radio hosts Tanya Teal and Michael McCartney that the single's A-side "Here For You" is a hopeful message written for Ray’s young nephews. Ray confided, “This world has gotten a little bit crazy, dark and unpredictable lately and in the midst of all of that I wanted to send a message of hope and positivity to two young boys starting out on this magnificent voyage we call life.”
Brian Ray has been a guitarist in Paul McCartney's band since 2002. He was also musical director for Etta James for over a decade and written and performed with artists such as Smokey Robinson, Rita Coolidge, Michael Steele, Shakira and Adam Lambert.
Brian shared with the Maui radio audience that the B-side to the digital single has an interesting relation to Brian as Neil Young actually wrote "Cinnamon Girl" about Brian’s sister Jean, who was seeing Neil at the time.
“I was going to a boarding school in the 7th grade in Ojai, California and I remember hearing 'Cinnamon Girl' for the very first time and I was just knocked out by it," declared Brian. "It was gritty and tough but it had grace and beauty in the melody and the lyric along with an almost haunting relentless energy to it. Imagine my surprise when later on I learned that the song was written by Neil Young for my sister, Jean Ray. Apparently, unbeknownst to me at the time, they were seeing each other, even though each of them were involved with other people.
"That song and the story behind its inspiration have always made me curious about playing it and while I was recording the basic track for ‘Cinnamon Girl’ with just me and a great drummer named Matt Laug, I came to the end of the song where Neil goes into his sort of solo ad lib guitar tantrum on his single version, I just started playing a revved up, crazy version of his great Buffalo Springfield song, ‘Mr. Soul’ in that moment as sort of a laugh. Matt joined in immediately and I decided it sounded cool and I left it in.”

We also lost Sharon Jones before the broadcast and she knew that she didn't have much time left on this Earth, which made her perform in front of more people than ever before and recorded more music in a short time frame as she lived life to the fullest.
