About The Record
This departure recording about the different angles of love, is an insider’s view of a heart learning its lessons. It is at the same time, romantic and filled with hope, anxious with loss, and cynical from heartbreak. From ballads to blues to jazzy jams, one feels sophistication in the moodiness, like sitting still in the dark with an expensive bourbon reflecting back on different connections and impressions left on a life.
