I’ve been hesitant to release this one... wrote it for and to a woman I am smitten with, hence the name. And yeah, I performed all the parts and all that... It has been her personal album from me since 2010. She’s ok with me releasing it now, which for a time I thought I wouldn’t, but I am actually really proud of this one. Parts of it are pretty, so be forewarned...its just a bit different from my normal thing.
On this album I attempt to express in ways I don’t, normally. For one, I wrote almost all of these songs on guitar and an acoustic one at that. They are guitar-based, and I don’t really know what I’m doing on that instrument. But, at that time for some reason I was able to write a whole slew of songs that way, 8 of which made the album.
...For reasons too lengthy and too personal to go into here, our relationship was forced to end although neither of us really wanted it to. Now, she is in Texas and I am in Washington. I guess the bittersweet mood I was in back then brought it out of me for some reason... “Eyes”, “Smitty” and “Hammock” concern feelings about her. The other songs reflect how I was feeling about life at the time. They are all dedicated to her, inspired by her...
Its embarrassing but true...some things go together like peanut butter and jelly...sigh...
