I've been meaning to release this for a while.
And by "this", I mean... something. Anything.
Anything to say, "I'm still in fact here, and I'm still a musician."
I had a really rough time last year. As with all hard times, I honestly wasn't sure it would ever end, if the fog would ever lift and that I might just have to get used to never laughing again. Ever.
I actually said to Jerry at one very dark and sad point,
"I'm afraid I'll never be creative again and I'm afraid I'll never be able to write a song again."
My heart was just so broken.
And I didn't write a song for what was like a really long time for me.
But then I did.
And amazingly, Jerry and I didn't just survive the terrible bad awful hard time, we thrived through it.
We hugged and held hands through it. We breathed and talked and we were really patient through it. We were kind. We loved. We loved hard. Harder than we knew we could. Harder than the hardest part of the hard thing itself.
In fact, I think it was due to our loving so fucking hard that we eventually smashed right through the rock AND the hard place with it.
And the fog lifted, and I'm ok.
And I laughed really hard just last night!
"Some things in life can't be fixed, only carried" (Megan Devine)
Here are a few far-from-perfect tunes to carry along with the rest of all of our things that just can't be fixed. My hope is that releasing them will help to lighten everyone's load. Even just a little.
Thank you for listening.
released February 6, 2016
