ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A few years into writing the songs that were to become The Foundling, I flew up to Toronto to play them for Michel Timmins from Cowboy Junkies, to see if he’d consider producing when the time came to make my next record.
Great producers roll tape all the time to capture everything that happens in their studio so as not to miss something special, and in keeping with that tradition, Michael recorded me performing these songs for the first time. Time went by and I forgot about the afternoon I threw these down in his garage studio. Several months later, we went on to make The Foundling in earnest.
A year and a half later, a worldwide CD release, over 250 shows playing these songs from Peoria to Perth, Austin to Auckland, Birmingham to Brussels, we listened back to these early recordings, and realized that they marked a turning point in the creative process – when my foundling song dreams first became a reality.
We felt as though there was something worth keeping here, so I took the files to Ray Kennedy (4-time Grammy Award winning producer, engineer and musician) and had him master the original tracks in his studio in Nashville. He did a gorgeous job, and the result is what we’re calling The Foundling Alone. The songs are captured in their early development; many of them went through more changes as they revealed themselves further, and in sharing them, I’m revealing to you part of my creative process – a sort of behind-the-scenes look at “Mary and the Muse”.
