ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Sit jealously in a town in the woods in the middle of nowhere, imagining the rooftops and the pavement of a powerful city. If you hear a siren in a quiet town it doesn't bounce. It just goes through the trees, wailing its sorrow until the air slows it down. This album is about jealousy and acceptance, love, the will for things to be different. It's about the sorrow of leaving and the joy of coming back. It came about because I met Aurelio Damiani and Christian Fields in Chicago when they played in a band called Skybox. I remember them coming through the scene like a blizzard. A band that played as tight as a dime. A few years later, Aurelio and I started to meet regularly on Kenmore street to trade songs. Aurelio is a composer.. a writer at heart, and plays a good groove on the drums. I admire his easygoing nature. If Aurelio has a heavy heart about anything, he either sheds it quickly or doesn't show it much to anybody. He would put a band together with Christian, himself, Matt Perich and me and we played some fun shows together. Christian is the type of guy who can play anything well. A musician's musician. He played bass and keys and did most of the engineering on this record. As far as I can tell, he thinks of himself as a drummer first. I could be wrong about that, but he'll outplay most on a kit. Matt... he's one of those guys who makes it look easy to be good at things. A scientist. He has a great melodic sensibility and can coax landscapes out of his guitar and synths. The former more featured on this collection of songs than the latter. But he hints at those landscapes. The band had run its course before this album was done. When it fell apart I asked my friend, Andy Oberhausen to play sax on a song. I couldn't pass up the opportunity when it presented itself because I consider him one of the best saxophonists in the city of Chicago, and he certainly brought that to this record. From there I brought the sessions to my friend and mentor, Steve Hamilton, where we recorded vocals, called Joe Ketchum (an incredible violist, to lay down a part on a song), and mixed and mastered the album. It took Joe something close to four takes to put a viola on track five. The first take was the first time he heard the song. Steve Hamilton.. I've known him for about a decade after meeting at the second Steel Bridge Songfest in Sturgeon Bay, WI. His generosity of spirit, his experience and his skill are second to none. I guess that leaves me: Brandon. I live and die as a singer/songwriter, though I'm not fond of the term because it invokes an image of a too-sensitive guy in a coffee shop who's looking for some girl to mother him and his acoustic guitar. I'm not that guy. I play a 1966 Harmony Rocket. And I have a harder spirit. I could go on and on about my admiration and appreciation for all the people who helped this album become a reality, but I'll spare you that.
