ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In writing this album I was pretty surprised at how quickly I felt like writing these tougher, more forward songs compared to my previous project. We all move through phases throughout our lives and artists are in a cool situation where they can look back on a previous work and remember what that phase of their life felt like. In the summer of 2017 I wrote a song called "Pennies" after attending a handful of demonstrations downtown Nashville. It felt like all at once I was made aware of all the hate experienced by a vast number of people, while also becoming increasingly aware of the unconscious role that I play in facilitating that hate. Being "woke" doesn't get anybody off the hook.

At my current level of understanding, one of the most helpful things I can do as a very privileged person is to consciously live with a learning & listening mindset. I'm very much a "default" member of society, and that means I'm welcomed by everybody everywhere without question. I'll never be able to actually understand what's it like to have to worry about people looking at me twice and making comments behind my back that stem from my race, sexuality, gender, or how I present myself (not to mention far more serious personal safety concerns that will never apply to me.) With this album, I try to shine a light on both the seriousness and the absurdity of the ways privilege is manifested in our society on a daily basis. I really appreciate anyone who takes the time to listen to the record, and I hope it compels you to consciously listen to and earnestly learn from the people in your community whose voices don't have the same platform as yours.
