Thank you so much for your support and bringing this album to life. I've been writing music for over twenty years and still question my abilities every time I pick up my guitar. Music is meant to be shared and has been a powerful form of connection for me. There are friends I have made throughout my life all because of music. My hope for this album is to share the stories of difficult topics in a healing way. To begin or continue important conversations. To allow even one person to listen and realize someone else out there can relate to their own struggles.
There are ten songs that make up the Hourglass album. Like so many other songs I've written, one by one, they were recorded into a cheap mic and dropped into a file on my hard drive. These songs evolved from the initial recording to a full-length studio album recorded by incredibly talented professionals.
Davide Raso and Owen Sartori at F5 Soundhouse created magic with my simple melodies and vulnerable lyrics.
With the help of some amazing Kickstarter backers, I was able to release this album on July 7, 2022. I am so grateful to have you all on this musical journey with me and hope you enjoy the album.
