This album is a split between myself and one of my primary musical collaborators/ closest friends, Samuel Regan. We both wanted to give a sense of closure to 2016, a year that somehow feels more significant than so many others that have come with the wash of years. Most of the songs are quite new, some are a bit old. There is sadness and an optimism to this music that I hope reaches you. May it find you well.

Most of this album was recorded in Oklahoma, but some of it was made in Detroit, where I now reside. I feel humbled by the possibilities of the coming year and look forward to sharing more music.

Track Name: askanse - soft spoken, he's broken
Soft spoken,
She's spoken,
But I can't hear that

He's broken,
He's broken,
And it won't come back
