About the album:
The album was recorded from December 2002 - August 2003 in my recording engineer's apartment in Somerville, MA. The bulk of the recording was done from January - April before I moved to San Francisco, CA to work for Macromedia. There were some additional overdubs done in June and then I came back to Boston in August to do the final overdubs. We mixed the record in September and returned to the studio in October to re-mix a few of the tracks. It was mastered over two days in mid-December with a final master/edit completed in January 2004.
This project actually began for me in August 2002. I had just finished the first record with the band 'Reflections' (2002) and it had been a year since my father's death. I felt a huge weight had been lifted off my shoulders that summer. That's when I met the person who would be the catalyst for many of the songs on this record. Our romance lasted only a month before she moved out west.
She was a beautiful shadow that passed through my life. A chance meeting that changed my life and my music. Life is a series of moments and often we can miss them if we aren't paying attention.
