Sometimes a photo just grabs you. That is what happened for the cover of the next album (to be released later this year). I was flying into Chicago on a sunny morning with low clouds. It had the look of a steaming, sweaty August day but was truly a crisp fall morning.
Once I took the photo I knew this would be the cover of the new album. Of the 8 songs written and recorded so far, not of them have anything to do with this photo specifically. But this album is my effort at becoming more of a storyteller. Fewer first person perspectives.
I’m really trying to push my writing and not settle for any cliches or trite lines. So far, I’m very happy with the songs that have made the cut.
I can’t wait to share them with you.
