This project is how it began. The songs were recorded during 2009 in my home with a "primitive" 4-track digital recorder and a cheap microphone. I had little recording experience and no training to draw from- the songs are a bit rough. It was self released in February 2010. Due to an increasing demand for the homemade CDs, which were eventually out of print, I felt it important to preserve this first album and re-release it under my since created independent record label. While maintaining its authenticity, I hoped to improve the overall sound through subtle re-mastering and in some cases, re-mixing. I also enhanced the physical appearance by re-designing the CD art work using original photos from the cover, back, and disc label. The evolution begins here.
