Trials of the Writer. A true concept album dealing with the positive and negative sides of being an artist that releases his work to the world, to exist forever… And to have that work follow you.
“The theme came to me pretty quickly… I wanted to explore the good, bad, ups and downs of a life writing songs. It was also my plan to research other artists…songwriters, novelists, poets and even painters. But I must admit, when all was said and done, it seems to be mostly about my life experiences, and how I feel at this point in my career, at my age, with so much work existing behind me. And how that work follows me around.
It is always there. It exists. Artists give ideas and thoughts life. Those ideas and thoughts are always there. They live forever. They outlive the artists.
John Lennon left, “Imagine” is still here”.
