The name of my album is "May I Rise?" It is a ten track album about Damage. Each song is a personal story of mine or someone who changed my life.
I had several goals in regards to this project.
First, I wanted to record songs...obviously. Many of these songs have traveled with me in this life since I was a kid. After the Circling Birds parted ways and Echospill disbanded, I decided to take the time to really focus on these soul songs.
This is an album about damage. All kinds by all people. Physical, spiritual and psychological. Addiction, societal expectations, guilt and remorse. Each song is a story that in one way or another...for good or ill...leads towards a damage that stays with us in the dark recesses of our souls.
I also wanted to pay homage to genre...the genres that influenced me. So, each song on this project is written in a style that reflects my favorite parts of different musical genres...while remaining new, fresh and my own. Somebody once told me that song shouldn't change drastically on an album...so I decided to have every song change drastically on the album. There is punk, rock, world music, jazz, blues, 80's prog and on and on and on.
Secondly, since I was approaching this project as a solo artist I wanted to include many of the local artists who had influenced and changed me musically. Indianapolis has always had and still has such a diverse and incredible wealth of talent. It has always killed me that we have such an unrewarding music scene. The musicians and fans are great...don't get me wrong...but there is a lack of energy that has always prohibited any type of real growth as a scene. I will name the artists that worked on the project at release but I picked certain artists for certain songs to highlight their own personal artistry to pepper on my music. I think it turned out wonderfully. As a bonus, I was able to share this creative trip with my kids who have always accepted their Twitchy, Irish pirate pop. They even helped me with a music video. Their support makes all of it worthwhile as I have never felt the need to be normal for them.
Lastly, I wanted to record the process so non-musicians could see just how back breaking and joyous the process of performing, recording and finishing a music project truly is. I wanted to involve anyone who wanted to follow the process to share that love of the creative process. A lot of artists announce and promote and commercialize...I wanted to just share. Open up my journey and have lots of shitz and gigglez with all of the amazing people I have met in this life. To that, I hope I wasn't too annoying with all of my posts...and that shitz and gigglez were indeed had by all.
Alrighty, that's about all. Look for it everywhere. On CD, Vinyl, digital and streaming. I will be gigging out again after Jan. 1st so that is exciting.
Much love, Space Rangers. I appreciate each and every one of you who has helped, supported and shared the misfit life with me. BzZzzZzzZzzt...
