So many things have happened between then and now. Countless new artist friends and collaborators, the birth of a professional audio business, the painful demise of a romantic relationship, four apartments, three cars, a global pandemic; the list is too long to fit here. Despite all of this, I somehow managed to write a few songs along the way. The songs on this record are the ones that stuck around. My hope is that they capture the transition we all experience into what is best known as “real life.” When the idealization and irrational optimism of youth finally fade away, we get to know what we are really made of. This record may not be filled with the gleeful guitar motifs and boundless energy of Karma Bricks, but I hope you will listen with an open to mind to the fact that our music changes with us, and enjoy it nonetheless.
