Liner Notes: “I’ve never recorded in Nashville before and my sister lived here while I spent some time and Nashville is Music City so I wanted to record here and the collection of musicians. There’s just so many great musicians and all kinds of musicians here. I think the styles that you hear in Nashville are more varied. In Nashville, there’s a whole lot of different kinds of music. There’s a lot of great jazz here. Great country, I think, is probably was Nashville is most noted for.

I wanted for this project more availability of some folk or country style instruments and just see how maybe that would make my sound a little different and make me grow a little.”
