Songs from the Empire has been a labor of love--and frustration--for many years. It was conceived and composed in 2003-04, recorded/engineered with Tom Hood from 2005 through 2007, mixed in 2008, and finally mastered by Tom Dimuzio in 2010. My deepest appreciation goes out to everyone who played, contributed and helped along the way, as well as for those others who encouraged and "kept on me" to finish this.
I would be remiss if I didn't try to emphasize the fact that this album is intended to be listened to in its' entirety - as one continuous piece, (it's my damn "classical" pedagogy...sigh) though, not to intimate that it doesn't work within our current cultural paradigm of single-song downloading." Thanks for reading/listening.
