The seasons always seem to have a dramatic effect on my songwriting. It was only after compiling my recordings from the past several years that I realized I would have 'Sunshine', 'Cold Winter', and 'Song for a Summer Day' together on an album. These tracks have been through many different re-writes and recordings, and I have worked them to the point where I am proud of what it has all led up to and I can finally put the past several years into this completed album... a 'retrospective' of sorts. Some of it was recorded in our South Dakota home, some back in our apartment in northern Illinois, and other bits and pieces were thrown in along the way. Thank you to my wife, Cassie for her amazing artwork and contribution of her vocal talents. Huge thanks also goes to guitarists Chris Champion and Tyler Steele for their amazing playing on 'Shadows'. Thanks lastly to all who have given me so much inspiration.
