Big Bowl of Courage
Big Bowl of Courage is a collection of stories from America. But the themes are universal: homesickness, joy over a newborn, throwing caution to the wind and attempting something that seemed impossible, etc. But more than anything I wanted to write an album that was exuberant, alive - textured and organic, but also muscular. I wrote about 20 songs for this album, of which finally 12 were selected, because they worked together as I had imagined. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed the year of writing and recording it.
