ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
I'm a person. I happen to be a person who writes music, and plays music, but mostly I'm just a person. Wayne Shorter likes to say "Your humanity is your instrument," so in that interest I like to write music that relates to my humanity. Music that relates to my thoughts, interests, moods, and emotions, music that relates to the things I see and hear and experience on a day to day basis, music that relates to the art that moves me, music that relates to the people I love and admire, and music that relates to things and events that I might only have encountered once, but which left a lasting impression regardless. With that in mind, I can't always imagine how my music will be perceived by others, but I feel strongly enough about it to want to share, to want people to listen to and enjoy the music that I've spent time and effort and passion crafting.

I play in a number of bands that I greatly enjoy and appreciate, and with people who I love making music with. Two of those bands, Lushh and the Sam Pilnick Project, are releasing albums very soon, both of which contain music that I've written, and I've performed on other albums in the past. None of those have been exclusively my own artistic vision though; even in Lushh's case I am part of a collective group mentality. I consider that to be a beautiful thing, a beneficial thing, and I consider myself fortunate to be part of such a wonderful group ( such wonderful groups!), and yet there are also things I want to express musically that might not fit the idiom of those bands. As such, this will be the first project I've embarked on under my own name. Is that a scary feeling? Yes. I have butterflies in my stomach while writing this! Do I think that this will ultimately be a financially rewarding undertaking? No, and in fact I would be thrilled just to break even. But I need to do this.
About the Band

I'd like to offer my gratitude to my amazing band on this project, which includes:

Eddie Codrington - Saxophone

Matthew Epperson - Bass

Madison George - Drums

Grayson Nye - Keyboards

Allie Robson - Vocals

Yakiv Tsvietinskyi - Trumpet

I'd also like to thank the wonderful Garrett Gagnon for his recording and engineering expertise, and Nate Elkus for his setup and sound reinforcement assistance. Without them, there'd be nothing for you to hear! Additionally, the wonderful Gordon Van Gent provided his engineering expertise and studio space at Overneath Creative Collective for the last two tracks.

Those attentive folks out there will notice that the band looks exactly the same as Lushh, with some added personnel. This is no coincidence--I've grown to really value the spirit and musicianship of each member of Lushh, and I think they've had to deal enough with my musical idiosyncrasies to have a generally good idea of what I want to communicate. Working with these wonderful people is a consistent pleasure for me, and I'm honored that they were willing to play my music.
