Ian, Justin and Josh played all the music and i sat there doing nothing…cuz that’s what diva’s do. just kidding. Caitlin Evanson flew down to texas on a whim and brought her fiddle. so those glorious fiddle sounds that you hear on the album are all her. she made us cry.
we’re in the digital age now, so i can’t really justify printing a ton of copies of this without a tour in line…so for now, this will have to do as far as liner notes go.
i made this record during one of the hardest seasons of my life. it felt like everything was against me when i was making this. it’s taken longer to release than i had hoped, but i have to believe that it’s coming out right on time. it really is the most meaningful record to me that i’ve been a part of making. i know a lot of artists say that about whatever new record they’re putting out, but i honestly mean it. there was something different about this one. hoping you’ll feel what we felt in those 11 days of creating it.
i hope these songs clear a path…
was driving home tonite and decided to turn on the radio…which is rare for me. Duncan Sheik was on. brought back instant memories of listening to those songs when i was 21. i’ve decided to do a quick-fire drill for myself, and you music buffs can correct me on years if i’m wrong. i grew up moving almost every year, so music tends to remind me of exactly where i was and what age i was when it came out. i’m pretty confident with my knowledge on what year certain songs were out….so without cheating or looking it up, i’m just gonna fire away what i remember from what year. i’m gonna start from 1986 when i was 9 yrs old and i’ll stop at 1998. i know i won’t get them all right but i think i might get at least a B+ .

from 1999 til now, i’ve been in Nashville. it’s the longest i’ve lived anywhere, so music is kinda jumbled now….so that’s all i have! i’m sure some of you music nerds will find several discrepancies but that’s just off the top of my head. hope you enjoyed a trip down musical memory lane with me. i love looking back. :)
I just re-ordered a copy of my favorite album ever after playing the original cd for the last 20 years. this album is called “I’ve seen everything” by a band called The Trashcan Sinatras. not a lot of folks know about them, but they have topped all my lists since i first discovered them back in 1992. my new copy came in the mail yesterday. i put it on after not having listened to it in ages, and it’s still completely timeless and beautiful. the sad thing is that you can’t find it on itunes…and some of their other records are super hard to find too. all of them are AMAZING. one of the albums of theirs that you CAN find on itunes is called “Weightlifting” and is just as great.
anyway, if your ears are looking for something gorgeous, check them out. :)
