These are the liner notes that I shared with the folks who pre-ordered the record. I am especially grateful to them for their support and encouragement throughout the process.
Some of the songs have more details than others and I may even update this as I uncover more material related to the recording. But for now, the journey is over, the record is out and I’m thrilled to have this artifact to share with you. At the end of this series you’ll find my original letter introducing the album.
A note on how to listen: You will find links to stream, download and purchase the album throughout. Most people ask me what the “best way” to listen is, aware that the music business isn’t exactly known for it’s equanimity towards artists. Really, I just am happy you’re listening and each platform has it’s benefits.
Now, to begin, here’s the original video that I shared to introduce the album. Edited by the inimitable Rob Wilson and shot by Chris Cullari
