about

My fourth solo album is pop rock in the vein of John Mayer, Goo Goo Dolls and Jimmy Eat World with elements of Nashville inspired country twang.

In a slight departure from my usual blues rock riffs, this collection of songs were written to sound just as at home on a single acoustic guitar as they do here in their full band arrangements featuring multiple guitars, piano, organ and strings.

The album is conceptual in nature both lyrically and musically, documenting the end of a lengthy relationship. It begins with themes of upbeat optimism and positivity before confronting feelings of loss and regret. The final tracks explore the concept of "moving on and getting over".

The tracks were written between 2014-2018 and are presented chronologically. I hope it helps anyone who has shared this experience in the way that my favorite artists helped me through a tough time.
