Notes from the Artist:
"'The Things I Should Have Said' is an autobiographical concept album, like The Beatles' 'Sgt. Pepper', The Who's 'Tommy', or Styx'' Kilroy Was Here'. However, the difference is that the overarching theme is derived from my personal life story. In my current job as a project manager, I have to conduct an exercise known as 'lessons learned'. This involves looking at the recently completed project, assessing what worked and what could be done better, and who owns various process changes that would be similar in future projects.
The central theme of 'The Things I Should Have Said' is that of a musical 'lessons learned' of my adult life. Things I did well, things I wish I'd done better, and...things I should have said. The CD is in chronological order starting at age 20 and covers a wide range of topics from the passing of my mother, to relationships with people in my life (good and bad), to some commentary on spiritual life and existing in this world."
