I come from a small town in Connecticut where it’s hard to feel like you’re a part of the world. My town was far down river from the naturals, the troubadours, and the heroes that I dreamed of being as a kid. Growing up in my hometown life sometimes felt mythless. Still, I always believed there was something there, something here that mattered. It’s something to be understood, a story to be told, something better to be reached for, and, if you’re good enough, just a piece of something transcendent. I can’t stay here to do those things, and I won’t. These first songs of mine are both a new beginning to, and a continuation of, a collective, long and noisy prayer. I’ve got my sneakers on. I hope to see you out there.
