About

"Life's Work" can take two forms. One form being the main activity in one's life or their most important achievement. I hope this album isn't the most important achievement in my life, but music is a major part of my life and who I am. Some of the stories I tell through these songs are about individuals life's work.

The next form can be read as "Life is Work." If you've turned on the news or opened a newspaper recently, you'll see that life is hard. Life is messy. Life is work. My music is quite honest about the struggles of this life, but I don't want to sound depressing. I want to offer hope in a couple forms. One, by being a voice of empathy. For those that are struggling, it's nice to not feel alone, but to feel like you're known, understood, heard, and felt. Two, by offering lyrics of hope. Sometimes they only come at a glance, and other times there might be a whole song devoted.

I'm proud of each track on this album. I think their are some great riffs, lyrics, and melodies. The best way to describe the melodies are "timeless." Some of them have an old sound to them. The ones that sound more modern are still catchy and will hopefully keep you coming back for more. The lyrics are thoughtful with some terrific one-liners, and great stories to be heard.

Risks and challenges

The only challenge I foresee is booking time in the studio. The studio I'm planning to work with is very busy especially around the time that recording will begin. It sounds like they are willing to work around our schedule. I'm confident we'll be able to being recording once we're fully funded.
