ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Long Way from Home is as much about a personal journey songwriting wise, as it is real life. The mix of personal experience crosses with ideas about culture and self. At various times we all question where we are, and what we are doing. Sometimes we realize we are just a long way from home…

The chorus to Going’ Down This Road has been in my list of songs to write verses for, for quite some time. Some folks I know around Nashville tell me the song has an Eagles vibe to it. I hope you like it. Maybe take it on the road with you. :)

It’s a tough world out there. We all need hope to get us through the hard times when we face them. The story doesn’t always turn out like we want, but we have to lay hold of Hope. Hope gives folks the tenacity to keep going when it’s not easy by any stretch of the imagination. Hope will keep you strong.

Every relationship will face challenges at some point. I Still Love You is for those who have faced some tough times, and still want to reaffirm that love and commitment.

Don’t Go Away is another Eagles-like tune about love and relationships. ‘We’re not talkin’, and everyone’s walkin’ away…’; You gotta keep communicating and working on things, even when it’s not easy and it feels tiring to just try. Don’t Go Away was written for my wife.

Another New Orlean’s Night is really a rewrite for me. I lost the original. I grew up in South Louisiana. New Orleans is such a beautiful city with lot’s of rich history and culture. The people have a zest for family, music, and food. This song isn’t about the Hallmark kind of relationships where the boy always gets the girl. :)

Some Day was written for my Mom. My step father was dying of cancer a few years ago. My Mom was working a full time job and working doubly hard to take care of him. She was living on exhaustion and just trying to survive. I had been in Nashville just a short time when we found out he had cancer. It was hard being here when they were back in Baton Rouge and fighting so hard.

Piano is not my main instrument, but I think it was simply effective at helping to evoke the emotions and thoughts to Things to Think About. Love and tenderness are things we need, but we can give them too.

We live in a ‘fast’ age where conclusions are made in nanoseconds. People judge one another without having the details. You Never Know considers that things aren’t always the way they seem.

I was driving home from a day job a few years back, when I got a call from a guy I know. He was complaining about this and then that. He really came across to me like some kind of ‘Diva’. I penned The World Ain’t Like That based on what I was feeling that evening. My friend never knew… haha!

Finally, Unconventional rounds things out instrumentally with some harmonica and guitar making one think about a foggy mountain train stop. :)

Enjoy the songs.
