Album Notes
This album examines choices that we make throughout our lives, connecting all of us. Each of these choices has positive and negative effects – some we could never have imagined, and others that stared us right in the face from the beginning. This music is like life. We all have the capacity to hurt and lose those we care about while simultaneously gaining true friends and companionship along the way.

Do I sacrifice independence for commitment and love, or do I vehemently pursue freedom, fun and adventure? Do I aggressively go after my dreams, or should I ensure a good and safe life for myself? Do I always stand firm in what I believe in, no matter the cost, or do I choose my battles more carefully and abandon important principles in favor of what is practical? No matter which paths we choose, we must deal with the consequences and struggles that come with them. The many different decisions – the forks in the road of life, some huge and some small – all lead to different places. Where do you want your heart and spirit to end up? There are no right answers.

We all are driving along the same path. It's up to each of us to determine what turns to make, when to take them, and who will be riding in the car with us. It is a difficult, mysterious, beautiful, consequential and fun ride. I hope you enjoy the ride and this album.
