ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“The Story of Her Life” is a rock/soul based concept album. Based on my own experiences living in the inner-city, it is influenced by Stevie Wonder’s “Songs in the Key of Life,” Marvin Gaye’s “Here My Dear,” and The Who’s “Tommy.”

The story begins with our hero, Jane, a young girl living in the inner-city. While playing during a day off from school, she hears about an acquaintance, Jack, who was abducted and raped. She mentions it to her mother, who comments that she should be nice to Jack, because he’s probably going to be distraught over the incident. Over the next few years, she becomes involved with Jack, and discovers she has a special gift; she can perceive complex spatial constructions in her mind. But Jack requires all her attention as he slips into drug abuse as a result of the trauma he had endured earlier in life. She struggles to keep him away from drugs, and they both wish they could escape from their neighborhood. Some of the criminals notice her, and despise her hopes and dreams. They abduct and rape her while Jack hides nearby, too cowardly to do anything. Afterwards, she attempts to commit suicide.

An alien is passing near Earth. He is searching for an advanced mind that he can bring back to his world to help. He sees Jane, saves her, and brings her back to his world. There, she discovers it is inhabited by a devout race of people who are unable to live on the surface of their world because of complex gravitational instabilities. The aliens convince her that she is someone special, and they connect her to a machine that interprets her thoughts. Instantly, construction equipment around the world create structures based on her thoughts, and the aliens realize she is whom they have hoped for. Back on Earth, the neighborhood believes Jane cheated on Jack and ran away, and he slips further into the abuse and dealing of drugs. Jane’s mother is utterly distraught, wondering if her daughter has been killed.

Back on the alien world, a great celebration is held in honor of Jane’s accomplishments. The aliens inhabit the structures Jane helped build, and soon set their sights on expanding to other worlds. Their piety fades, and is replaced with a lust for wealth and power. A few dissidents try to remind the populous of how devout they used to be, but are ignored. A young child confronts Jane during a parade, and begs her to see what is happening. Jane understands, and asks the aliens if she can return home. They refuse, imprison her in the underground caverns in which they once lived, and force her to continue to create. Jane decides to break her mind, rather than empower the aliens on their quest for domination.

The same alien that saved her from Earth, rescues her from the caves, and takes her home. She is reunited with Jack and her mother, and quickly gets the police to arrest those responsible for her assault. Jack asks for her forgiveness for being too cowardly, and for his drug abuse. After life returns to normal, she thinks back on the best parts of her journey to the alien world, and realizes she is missing something. The alien returns one last time and gives her the gift of immaculate conception. She has a young boy, and is elated. Back on the alien world, they see how happy Jane is, no matter if she is still poor. They reflect on all they had lost, and resolve to return to their spiritual ways. On Earth, Jane pushes Jack away, and realizes how difficult it is to raise a child on one’s own. But she is resolved to succeed, to raise a good boy, because she knows she has the inner strength to do so.
