ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Some big part of life seems to be about forgetting most of the ways in which we experienced the world as children, and then (if we're lucky) beginning to remember them in later years. I think I might have been all of four years old when I first recognized the way that singing can turn the lights on inside of me. I've been writing songs now for more than 35 years, but it wasn't until maybe twenty-five or twenty-six years ago that I began to write anything I really felt like singing (and it's probably not just a coincidence that that's just about the time I first heard Kate Wolf. I think all my lights came on when she sang that day).

I sing because I have to; it's a river that runs through me, and there's no way to keep it from flowing. Writing songs is like finding channels through which the water can move. I fell honored to have been assigned such a task.

Most of the people in my life over the last twenty years have known me as a winemaker (I'm co-owner of Edmunds St. John Winery) and I've been so busy wearing that hat that there hasn't been very much time for singing, or writing songs. But I wanted to make a recording of some of the songs I wrote when my children were small, so they'd be able to still hear me singing, even after I'm not around anymore, and I'm lucky to have a friend like Laurie Lewis, to help me bring this project to fruition.
