This record is a set of songs told from the points of view of various people from my hometown whose stories I found interesting or moving in some way. Some of them are people I know personally, some of them are people I have never met but have read about in the local paper, and some of them are me. It was made almost entirely in my bedroom, and it was recorded, produced, and mixed entirely by me. Because of this (and the inherent fact therein that, in almost any situation that requires technical and/or technological knowledge and competence, I have little to no idea what I am doing), the sound quality leaves a good deal to be desired. Hopefully you can look past this and find something to enjoy here, because these songs mean a great deal to me, and I would like it if they could mean something to others as well. Thank you to everyone who has been interested enough to come to the shows, and especially those who have offered me encouragement. It means a lot.
This record is dedicated to my hometown of Guntersville, Alabama, and to my family, especially to those members who are no longer with us.
