about

I didn't intend to build a collection of brooding monologues. I had even planned to avoid first-person pronouns altogether, imagining instead sonorous landscapes that flirt mindlessly beyond the ego. So I was quite troubled when "Am I Old?" and "The Kids" arrived: clearly human, undeniably egocentric. But they felt right! Gradually, as other tunes surfaced, I accepted that I was composing soliloquies and chose to own the fact rather than temper it. I then named the collection "Am I Old?" and decided to decorate the album with a single person toppling over. "Am I Old?" is my rawest album and my best try so far to get real deep.

released August 31, 2013

These tunes were built between 2009 and now, recorded mostly by myself in San Francisco and Oakland. My hands and mouth are responsible for all that you hear, besides contributions by the folks listed below. The core of "The Truth (Really?) Every Time" was recorded by Jay William Henderson in Salt Lake City, and the string quartet portions of the album were tracked by Scott Mcdowell at Hyde Studios C in San Francisco.

I wish to give special thanks to Michael Sempert for being my heart coach/friend as I struggled to wrap this up.
