"I wrote these songs while I traveled the united states for a year. Most of these songs were first penned in a van, or in homes. After writing the lyrics, I had to alter the style of music that I would be playing due to the amount of lyrics that I had written."
"The recording process was really fun for me. This album was recorded in an empty room of New Tribes Bible Institute just down the hall from my dorm room. I recorded the instruments that were within my reach, and with the equipment I had at my disposal. Overall, it was a great experience."
"I hope that this album is impactful in the lives of the few who listen to it. A lot of these lyrics are both personal to me and things that I've really put a lot of thought into. I love to hear feedback, so if you have anything to say, good or bad, please shoot me a message. If you have any questions about any of the lyrics, I'd love to hear from you. Enjoy!"
