From the writing process to the recording process is such an interesting journey. Putting the songs down permanently... It can be daunting to lock them into one kind of expression. I know by now how they grow and change with time. And right now, it's taking me some time to get to know each of these gems that has come to me for this CD. I have to get inside them, kick around in the corners of them, and try to tame them. Try to capture them to be put on display for the world to hear.
I know that a year from now, after I've played these songs with the band a thousand times, they'll be like comfy old shoes; but for now, I'm still getting acquainted. It's exciting. It's like falling in love.
