Album Notes
With his new album Casting Shadows singer/songwriter Hersey revisits a dark time in his life, plumbing the depths of anger, regret, obsession and disaffection, occasionally glimpsing the allusive but redeeming power of love. The first single, the country waltz A Man in Love, is an emblem of that redemption. But to reach that holy grail of hope, Hersey must journey through the valley of shadows in the Mean Machine, a driving alt-rock invocation of escape from modern alienation and suffocation. The tempo is upped a notch with The Clap of Thunder as the loss of love brings the singer to the brink of madness. Jazzy ballad Love Happens explores the pain/pleasure dualities of intimacy. And ska-tinged Monomania rages against the demons of obsession and compulsion. But behold the light at the end of the tunnel! Even though “the tears often follow the laughter” Hersey pledges to “sing a like a man in love.”
