“Hope Resides” is an emotionally rich, yet gentle compilation of songs. The songs present a lyrical snapshot of the emotions I experienced during 2012 while composing this body of work. These range from wistfulness to joy to loss, and returning, as always, to hope.
My wife and I took on the adventure of building an addition to allow her parents to move in with us, so the changes to our lives have been vast and plentiful. We are now a family, coping with Alzheimer's and learning to live in the moment. I always knew what music meant to me, but now I have seen first hand how much music can add to others' lives as well.
When this CD was being recorded in October of 2012, a hurricane struck the east coast. Ironically, in the midst and aftermath of disaster, Hope Resides.
