about

These tracks were written mostly on acoustic guitar and are enhanced with accordion, electric guitar, theremin, and bass in something of a "wall-of-sound" production style. It is the first album where I had enough confidence in my playing to feature accordion and guitar solos. Halls, Winter Pop Song, Two Views Part 2, and Requiem had previously been recorded, but were re-worked and vastly expanded upon for this album.

Recorded slowly and pain-stakingly between 2009 and 2011.

Re-mastered in 2013 by Mike Abiuso at SwitchBitch Studios (www.switchbitchrecords.com)

Track Name: Halls
I cleaned all my life
I ne'er made it right
and now I find
the things I disdain
that which you claimed
was never mine

you white-washed my walls
emptied my halls
I felt the lack
strange comfort I found
having you 'round
I give it back
Track Name: Scarborough Fair
Are you going to Scarborough Fair?
Track Name: A Lilting Summer Love Song
I know that look in your eyes
we all know our time will come
call in to work today
we'll sit out in the sun
