I picked instruments I felt represented the light of my country, arranging songs for portable instruments only. And found some great musicians to record with. We came together a few days in a vintage studio and recorded the basic tracks. Our engineer was Oz Fritz (USA), who is known for his work on a few @Tom Waits records I love for their sound. (https://open.spotify.com/album/0tFQcJyS2Ui3vtiijAEdwS) We mixed the album in California, where Fritz had recorded Waits too.
That’s the basic story of the album. The songs have their own stories to tell. I write them to transcend experiences or events that left an impression. I am hoping they may reflect things from your life.
