"Fall" is clearly influenced by 70's-era AM radio kingpins, along with 80s college/alternative rock, power pop and the indie singer-songwriter sounds of the early aughts.

Album Notes
When we first headed into the studio to start recording this record, I had a pool of about 20 songs to pull from. One of them, "Fall She Said," a song that I'd written in 1997, for sure had to be on it. "Fall She Said" was meant to be on a recording project I'd started and abandoned in 2000. And it didn't really fit the tone of how my first record ("Hold Fast" 2011) was shaping up.

But since I'd decided to use full-band arrangements, and collaborate with some top-notch musicians, the overall vibe of this record would definitely rock a little harder. So "Fall She Said" was short-listed.

"All Falls Down" also pre-existed the idea of this record. And so did "The End of Last Summer."

I looked through some of the other songs, many had "fall" in them—either in the title or in the lyrics, and as a verb or a noun or a thematic idea. As I continued to write songs and add them into the mix, it seemed like I kept coming back to the idea of either "fall," or falling, or on some of the newer songs, getting back up after falling down.

I'm not sure if there's a pure "title track," and I could make the case for quite a few of these songs having that distinction.

All that said, autumn is my least favorite season. In my mind, it's also often the beginning of the end of things. And these songs are planted firmly in a juxtaposition between beginnings and endings.
