My 2014 “Album” Hope was not only named after the second track, it was an album that came together at a time when I felt hopeful about the world. The music itself is simpler and more raw. I realized the extra drum tracks I was adding weren’t making my recordings sound significantly better — in fact, in some cases it was making them sound more awkward — and it was also taking up a lot of time. For the majority of the songs I decided to go with just me on guitar and vocals, recorded at the same time.
Over all this is probably my favorite of my “Albums”. Galla, Hope, Breaking Down, Days in Doubt and Precious Time are all songs that I love.
