What started as some solo demos that Tom recorded one day here at Snoozeking wound up becoming the basis for this album. We purposefully limited instrumentation on this acoustic-driven collection of songs. We chose to do that partly to celebrate Tom’s live playing style, but also because the COVID pandemic hit right when we were about to resume work on tracking. Since we couldn’t really get together, we worked with what we had, and I think it turned out fantastic.
