Artist statement:

"Written and recorded 2020-2022, in too many rooms and with too much distraction.

--

To sum up a body of work, a collection of songs or a single piece of expression is hard. I can't claim these pieces document a particular place, lived experience or period of time but I can say they were written strongest in the moments I was overwhelmed by the world.

Much of this was written during a period I spent having returned to my childhood home, among cobwebs, creatures, artefacts and memories I didn't recognize.

I found myself in a life-hiatus, trying to move closer to a loved one during a pandemic and struggling a physical illness that hampered my guitar playing and energy.

I found myself exploring faith during these periods, despite the most open mind I found any God to be too intrusive. There was no system that could explain the things humans experience in their lives and the things I saw and heard around me.

This humble collection of songs is my attempt to understand these things, to understand how experience shapes us and most importantly, how our own lived experience can be used to better understand another's.

The most important thing is to love and to be loved. To hold sight of this during the most stormy weather and the longest nights.
