Album Notes
This CD represents a range of styles that reflect my listening over the past few years. Fripp, Frisell, and Metheny are obvious influences, as well as some folkier things. I used to listen to a lot of Dylan, Leonard Cohen, and Tom Paxton, and some of that makes its way through.

I imagine my instrumentals as stories without words. My hope is that they satisfy with their own narrative arcs and enough edginess to temper the sweeter moments. I'm not a fan of the pristine recording technique, and I love to hear the room, the performance, the performer in an immediate way. Music like this can suffer from too much smoothness; fortunately, my incompetence as an engineer has preserved the DIY aesthetic.

The songs have their origins in personal experience, but this wouldn't hold much interest for the listener. Better to just hear it and find a connection, or not.

Thanks for reading and listening!
