Flash forward to today, and several albums later, and I continue to write under this pseudonym whenever I need a creative outlet that's different from my usual work. It all feels a bit like a filmscore. I have 2 rules for The Candlepark Stars to which I continue to adhere:
1) I only write it when I really feel like it because I don't want to release an inferior album and 2) only joy, no darkness.
Because music is beautiful.
