I’ve always tried to make the kind of music that I would want to find in a music store and take home. It’s harder than it sounds. The challenge is knowing what kind of music you want to hear next, because after decades of listening to a wide variety of artists, you feel like you’ve heard every interesting idea that’s out there. Having said that, every time I create a new album, I feel closer to that goal. But maybe that’s just an illusion and I’m chasing a ghost.
Either way, my new album Observer gives me that same feeling. Each track has its own personality, but certain characteristics chain them together. You can think of this record as a continuation of Unresolved from last year. It’s produced in a similar style and takes a different look at some of the same themes and ideas.
Hopefully, Observer tells you an interesting story.
