Product notities

These songs were written over many years, beginning in Seattle in the 1990s and then moving into Taiwan and back to my native California. Many of the tunes are love songs. Others concern the nature of consciousness and are centrally Taoist in nature. 'Pushing Stones Uphill' is a meditation on the horrors of the war in Iraq, strained through the myth of Sisyphus. I subscribe to the notion that songs should have meaningful lyrics and should refresh something in the soul. This last point also comes from singing my own songs countless times as a busker in Europe and Asia and with the band Fireflower in Taiwan. That is to say, if a song works over tired cliches, then it will eventually bore everyone and deserves to be forgotten. Conversely, songs by writers like Bob Dylan, Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen sound fresh even if written 40 years ago because they are carefully crafted and include poetic language. I aspire to write the same kind of material. The album was recorded in Taiwan and then mixed both in Taiwan and in California. It took many previous recording efforts for me to get to this level, and much time discarding songs that didn't make the cut. I hope you enjoy this album and let me know what you think.
