Album Notes
Songwriting is why I play music. While I certainly enjoy performing, recording,
and practicing, those play supporting roles. It’s the strange experience of creating
something from nothing (usually between midnight and 6am) that intrigues me most.
My step-dad, watercolorist Ed Herrmann, said that art is emotional
interpretation of our world. I like that definition. It alludes to some of humanity’s best
attributes: emotion, cognition, and, introspection. While art is evidence and
articulation of our inner worlds, it also prompts us to clarify our perspectives looking
outwardly. Because these experiences are personal yet universal, art is stimulus for
connecting us all, even across geography, cultures, and time.
The albums I make are, to put it gently, loss leaders, especially in this age of
streaming music. I do it anyway. Though my recordings serve to enhance professional
credibility, they are also my chance to try to elicit, if not provoke, the sort of emotional
interpretations of which my dad spoke.
“Breakaway” is a collection of songs that reflect experiences of sadness, humor,
anger, happiness, frustration, fear, gratitude, and loss. I’m delighted that, in
anticipation of this album, some have asked me to include written lyrics as well as the
back-stories of the songs. Though these songs are very personal to me, my hope is that
you, the listener, will experience, explore, and interpret your own responses to them.
Aloha and thank you very much for listening,
-Doug Fitch, 2017
