about

This EP was what became of two days in a small studio in Nashville, TN with a few very close friends and a very dedicated engineer. The four songs included here frame a phase of my life and songwriting that I wanted to capture as if looking at a picture album. The song content deals with the ever-persistent songwriters’ dilemma in dealing with the brevity of life, frustrating relationships, and judgmental assumptions… But I brought an honesty to these themes in a way that haven’t been able to do before, and I’m very satisfied with what I’ve conveyed. My pride is represented equally across the arrangement, sonic texture, chord structure, diction, and delivery of each tune; which is a first for me. The songs were cut live to two-inch tape with minimal overdubs and mixed down with simplicity in mind. Every part of the process of making this EP was kept local, from the musicians, the studio and the mastering engineer, to the vinyl presser in Memphis and the album jacket screen-printer here in Nashville. Enjoy!
