Album Notes
While putting together this collection of songs, I was reminded of something that my friend and collaborator Joe Connolly often says: there is no real difference between the sacred and the secular.

With that in mind, I was free to simply write about whatever seemed important. Some of these songs are what might be called “church songs” while others could be described as “secular” in nature. Joe’s quote opens the possibility to consider those seemingly opposite designations as more related than not. For instance...

“Plowshares” is based loosely on the Christian scripture from Isaiah 2:4, but world peace is a goal that many non-church people dream of, and work for. “Write Another Song” hints at the possibility an afterlife, but it is really more about the need to express oneself in music, which (for me) is a form of breathing. I am hopeful that I will continue to “breathe” in that manner for eternity, and one day I will find out first-hand if it’s true. “Bending Heart” sings of a constancy that even the most worldly people can and should adopt in their lives. “The Man at the Piano” is an homage to one of the truly great men it has been my privilege to know. And “Responsibility”’ speaks to the view that all of us, no matter who, need to take responsibility for ourselves and for each other.

This world has become so focused on what is negative in everyone else’s belief system that the fabric of society is beginning to tear apart. These songs were written to encourage us all to look for the positive features; to look at each other with hope and faith rather than hate and mistrust. Impossible? Go ahead and embrace the possibilities; beat your sword into a plowshare, and prepare to be amazed.
