Description

The Garden is very much a coming of age: it is about growing towards knowing who you are, as well as choosing who you are going to be. It is about ideas of finding justice and equality and love and peace, on this earth or the next. It is about growing up. It is about the strong emotions you feel as you live and experience this life. It is about guilt, hope, joy, love, freedom, gratitude, strength, perseverance, and growth. It is about cherishing the memories you have and the moments you live as you live them - something I am still continually learning to do. It is about the garden that exists in your soul that is ever growing - and choosing how to water it. 

Please don’t water your weeds; water your ambitions and the passions of your heart, as those will bloom into the most beautiful flowers that you have grown yet. For me, The Garden is one of those flowers. Over the years I have spent writing for this album I strongly feel that I have grown and changed significantly as a human on this earth, and as I carry forward and live this life I will commit to continuing to grow. I invite you to continue growing with me.
