Album Notes
"Stylistically, the songs are all over the chart... Each one has it's own voice and personality. They dictate where the sound will go and what instruments will be used."

"The reason I became a songwriter was that I had this urgent need to communicate my thoughts and feelings, yet I didn't feel that I really could... friends were...weirded out because I often wanted to talk about what I was feeling. What's wrong with that? So I put it down on paper, and in doing so was relieved. Songwriting for me, started out as therapy. Eventually, my writing skills caught up with my need for expression."

"I was most prolific when my loneliness and anger were intensifying in 1999. In college I had been classified as a pessimist... My fascination with music ripped me away from schoolbooks, and as my songwriting matured, I became quite cynical... Eventually, after years of depression, I was 'snapped out of it'... although this halted my songwriting career (for I no longer had much to complain about, rather seemed predominantly cheery), it led to a healthier outlook and I got to focus on adding layers to songs and production instead of writing new songs."

"I'm serious about recording music because I believe that the created artwork should reach an audience. The point was to communicate something and if it does reach a listener, they might get something out of it. Rock and roll's always done that for me... album after album, it might suit my mood or whim. It was the music of the Counting Crows that got me listening to modern music. I've connected with the lyrics of Adam Duritz over the years... understanding someone else makes you feel less alone. That band was really the reason I got a guitar. I felt that if other people were writing honest songs, I too could fully realize those tunes that had been floating around in my head.
