It has been an amazing, hard, rewarding, somber, and joyful five years since my last album "Blind Willie's Lighthouse." This new collection of music, which I've spent this summer recording, is a reflection of those years. Welcome to "The Battle of Greenland." Since "BWL," I've had two beautiful and now healthy kiddos, seen one of them fight and beat cancer, spent lots of time in hospitals, lost my uncle and grandfather, still grown as a family, and have had my heart increase two sizes.

This album and its themes are a way for me to reflect on all these memories, both the sad and good. The songs are about snow, ice, birth, life, death, hospital rooms, mortality, tundra, icebergs, penguins, hope, nuclear annihilation, fluorescent lights, battles, resurrection, wolves, red blood cells, the North Pole, the South Pole, Siberia, Antarctica, Alaska, and Greenland. I have always had a fascination with cold remote places, and they make a perfect background setting for this collection of stories.
