Album Notes
From nature to social issues to personal nostalgia, I feel strongly about a range of topics. In my debut EP, I seek to express those sentiments which have had a profound effect on my life.

B.B. Sky
The opening track is all about my love for the sky. On a plane heading back to Boston, I wrote the lyrics when I was at cruising altitude, describing all the breathtaking imagery in the clouds and the healing quality of the sky. The song has two blended sections: One that starts lower in the sky and then, as the vocal loops enter and the beat drops in, another where the listener is swept higher and higher up into the stratosphere.

The next song is my reaction to the dire state of the United States government. With the help of a foreign power, the electors and nearly all of the Republican Party were complicit in the election of a psuedo-president/dictator with no sense of basic decency or moral imperative. This song seeks to shine an unapologetically bright light on those who sat back and let it happen. The lyrics were written in between the November 2016 election and mid-December, when the electors would officially vote in this disruptive racist demagogue and conman.

This song depicts my fluctuating confidence levels and contemplates my own regrets. But in the end, a strong sense of well being perseveres. This solo piano track is dedicated to my beloved grandmother, Shirley Baker, who was more resolute than anyone I ever met.

Without Words
I began working on this song when my brother-in-law was suddenly admitted to the hospital with an aggressive infection. It was an unbelievably frightening time. There were many folks casting doubt he would ever be the same. Thankfully, he had an operation and had a strong recovery. Despite this agonizing period of uncertainty, we all made it through and the song reflects the path away from darkness. I am dedicating this final track to my brother-in-law who remains strong and healthy to this day.
