about

There is always a magical mist that surrounds the place where you grew up. The mist in this case was smog, but it's effects were nearly the same. Some heavy sadness hangs in that dead waste between Fresno and Bakersfield. It is a sprawling suburban Narnia, but a tragic Narnia where getting in is easier than getting out. A Narnia where the time goes slower instead of faster. I left a part of myself there. I love it, I hate it, it makes me sick, it makes me sad, and it makes me gut-wrenchingly nostalgic.

Here is my tribute to The Central Valley.

Being a completist I prefer that you listen to the album from start to finish, on a nice set of headphones. It was hastily mastered, hastily produced and I recorded as I wrote. In the end I wrote it for myself. So in that spirit I do not expect you to pay for this album, but if any money comes in I will use it towards furthering writing music.
