about

Download the full album and get a video of an in studio performance for Under the Radar (radarradio.net) as well as 4 demos. The demos for this album caught these songs at what I consider to be their optimum, "just-being-concienved" state. They are a rough around the edges but I think you'll enjoy them.

*****

Most of this record was written in 2006, right around the time my oldest daughter was born. Somewhere between fatherhood and homeownership, the 15th chapter of Luke's gospel caught up with me. That's how these songs were born. The ridiculous love of a father, set to the sound of acoustic instruments, vintage keyboards and an occasional lo-fi drum kit.

The album was primarily a collaboration between myself and producer, Mark Mazurek, with the So Elated cast filling in the gaps. It was recorded in the Summer and Fall of 2008 and released in January 2009.
