I spent a full year essentially dumping 20 years' worth of musical and life inspiration into a stand mixer, and pouring it into the making of this record. I recorded and mixed the album myself and played nearly every instrument on it. This album is the culmination of everything I've learned in the two decades I've been playing and writing music, and in the three decades I've loved it. It is exactly the kind of record I've been trying to make for years, constantly striving to leave as much of myself in these songs as I possibly could. This album is the summation of me as a person, expressed in 47-plus minutes of music.
