ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Track one is about the High Level Bridge in the city of Edmonton Alberta, the city where I grew up. While researching lyrics for this song, I discovered an old rumor that a man fell to his death during construction 100 years ago right into the concrete and is still entombed there today. The song seemed to write itself once I began finger picking in the classic style of bluegrass.

Track two was co-written by my brother. We traveled to Australia together and one small town we went to became the best part of our trip. The one bridge to enter the town flooded over in one night. People in the hostel who intended to leave couldn't, yet we were all happy with being stuck in Bellingen. The song also represents the healing process from past mistakes and hurts, taking a moment to recognize your situation and find a way to enjoy where your at.

Track three is a love song. My favorite line is "here in this accordion circle." The truth is somewhat unglamorous but is very meaningful to me. The day I fell in love with my man was the day I took a city bus with him. I was one of those extra long ones with an accordion section for turning. We stood there talking and it was there I knew, and almost kissed him. My father plays the bits of accordion that you hear in the background. It's quite endearing to have him involved with my first project since he has been the biggest musical influence in my life.

Track four is about life lessons and self realization. I made a series of huge mistakes that took some time to dig myself out of. It's a much older song than the first three tracks but I've been told that it carries a lot of meaning that people seem to connect with. I value the idea that people can positively learn from my lyrics.

Track five is about hope. I watched a close family member go through something so hard and could see him losing hope. As a christian woman I was, of course, praying so much for him and trying so hard to help. The song is me telling him he could let go and that I was hoping when he had no hope left, and that I knew he was going to get through it. Which he did.
