These are some of the tracks that arose out of the time I spent living on my parent's acreage (known as "The Land") outside of Oklahoma City. I set up a small studio in my grandmother's travel trailer named the "Casita". The windows of the Casita looked out upon the woods. I often heard the sounds of birds or the rustling of rabbits in the bushes. Towards the middle of summer the otherworldly call of cicadas was ever-present. All these sounds and images combined with feelings of disquiet and loss, as I groped for an anchor in post-University life. My inner unease was balanced against the outward ease of living with my parents on this idyllic land. In a sense it was paradise, but I hadn't earned it, and I didn't deserve it. And so, that's what these songs represent to me, and I hope that you find something in them too.
