ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
My music is generally slow-paced. I always tell people that “You can take the girl out of Nebraska, but you can’t take the Nebraska out of the girl.” The wide open spaces that I experienced as a child, not so much in my living environment, but in the many car trips we took to Colorado to see my grandparents, were and are an integral part of my artistic psyche.

One of my favorite composers is Jean Sibelius. One time I saw a documentary about him, which showed the place where he lived and worked- it was a wide-open expanse of frozen lake and snow- one of the most beautiful images I have ever seen. I love living in the east, but I long for the space and expanse of the place in my childhood memories. I feel like my music is an expression of that longing.

My music is also mostly very quiet, although there are occasional outbursts here and there for various reasons. I often feel oppressed by noise, and I want my music to be heard by being listened to carefully. I want it to whisper rather than shout.
