It has been an interesting year. As I write and record songs, I'm also processing stuff. It is truly an emotional/mental health aid for me. There is grief in these songs as well as anger, despair, anxiety, hope, gratitude and love. Also, as I wrote, I was curious and questioning who my audience might be. Who would hear these songs and how would they affect them? Art is communication. In some forms, feedback or response is immediate (as in clown). In other forms, like recording music, the other side of the communication might not be there for the artist directly or at all so the guessing game continues. Nonetheless, ultimately, as when I paint a portrait, this collection of recording is for you as my listeners. And I hope it brings you meaning and joy.
