“I do not have a record contract that says I have to make a record. I do it because I’m compelled to. Because control is an illusion. I make records to put it down finally and to release that control. To stop second-guessing.
It’s taken five albums to let go and step into the dark. I’m following songs where they lead me now. It’s unpredictable, where they’ll go. As the process unfolds the songs reveal themselves.
I’ve learned to trust the process, trust the skills I’ve built up, the people I’ve chosen to surround myself with.
By letting go of the illusion of control with this band of creative people, we are able to put a puzzle together one small, obscure piece at a time. Something we can share. Something we found by following the songs like partners in a dance.
And now we release them to your care. You can follow them where they lead you.”
