Salem is one of my favorite places on earth. I've always said that if I ever got rich, I wouldn't "winter" some place warm...I would "autumn" in Salem. Its just beautiful and full of rich history (some good and some bad). The last two years I've gone there during October to see the leaves turn. I nerd out on all things "Hocus Pocus". I visit Max and Dani's house. I go to The House of 7 Gables and visit the house of Nathaniel Hawthorne (one of my favorite writers ever). I visited recently, and I left with a full heart...so I said "I should write some songs about this."

So here it is...only a week since I left Salem. I have written, recorded, mixed, and mastered 5 songs that are very personal to me in one way or another. They are INCREDIBLY raw. They are either about Salem or something that happened in Salem, or something that happened to me in Salem, or something I imagined happening in Salem. I'm in love with what came out of it...and its yours now.

I wanted something that sounded like fall, Halloween, New England, and everything perfect about October. I love you, and I hope you like it. Happy Fall, Happy Life, and Happy Halloween. : )
