Keyline:The concept of doing my own record has been with me for years.
I’ve been writing songs since I was a teenager and had always dreamed
of putting out my own material.”

The making of: “I’ve always been fascinated by the connection between storytelling and music, the ability to paint a scene through words and melody. There’s an honesty I appreciate that I hope comes through in some of my music. There’s also another side of my writing that reacts to the world and people around me, including myself and choices I’ve made. I think the common thread in most of my writing is self-betterment. Recognizing there’s room for improvement, and trying to take the steps to get there, despite the challenges we face.”

“I’ve worked with some great producers in the past who I learned a lot from. I’ve been looking for an opportunity to sit in that chair on a project, and this seemed like a no brainer. I’m super happy I did it, and I’m very proud of the end result. I think there’s a lot to be said about an outside point of view and the ability to have a sounding board – left to my own devices, I was constantly second guessing myself, making changes and revisions that turned a few month process into one that’s taken over 2 years.”
