ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This is an album of music which is dark and mysterious yet magically hopeful. I wanted to portray aspects of the fairy tales that occur throughout the various stories. A sense of adventure combines with ethereal magic, glittering palaces, cozy cottages, talking animals, and thorny obstacles. But there also exists a sense of foreboding, sadness, and longing that permeates the music and the stories. If you’ve ever read them you’d know that these tales aren’t really for children. They contain unrealistic solutions to problems set in stories filled with sexual innuendo, graphic violence, child or elder abuse, anti-semitism, barbaric nobility, cruel parents and children, selfish magical animals, and really deep, dark, thorny, forests. But throughout them all are conflicts and events that are relevant to everyone and teach us how we can transform ourselves and our conditions to live in a better world.

Now, if I could just get those sheep busy growing my golden wool!
