I've been thinking a lot lately about how I create music. These past two or three years have been extremely busy, raising Violet and enjoying life, which hasn't allowed for much time or desire to share more than a handful of songs here and there. Although I worked very hard on those songs, there is much more music I've created as well. The releases currently listed on my website are just the tip of the iceberg, so to speak, ideas that pushed themselves to the forefront of my creative enjoyment and evolved further than the others as a result.

For a while now, I've been preoccupied with the question of what happens to the other ideas that haven't matured as far creatively. Even though these ideas haven't emerged as thoroughly, they are undoubtedly still important in my mind and worthy of sharing. The songs contained within my 'official' releases are the ones on which I've invested the most time and effort, either because I found them interesting or they were complemented by ideas of a similar caliber. Regardless of that process, I've concluded that those ideas alone represent only a small part of my creative disposition.

Perhaps it's natural that I would only want to share the best and most fully realized of what I create, to paint the best picture of my creative self to the public, instead of allowing you to hear other concepts that haven't come as close to completion. Since my current artistic identity includes allowing others to learn about what I create, I must not only share the best of those creations, but all of them. I refuse only to provide evidence of my artistic success and not my artistic failure. There cannot be one without the other. I don't think these ideas are failures at all actually, but simply part of the process and small successes in their own way. Regardless, presenting everything is the only way that you can obtain the most complete view of who I am as a musician.

As you've probably guessed by now (since I've been so eloquently loquacious about it), I'll be posting new music from a rather large collection of unfinished work. The first file will be posted shortly. As always, I invite you to share your thoughts if you so choose. Thanks for listening.
