Gone Too Soon is dedicated to every vacation that ended too quickly, or never began at all...
I wrote and recorded these songs over the course of one year, of which the furthest I traveled was to Wake County. My wife and I were just not able to take a proper vacation, but that didn't keep me from inspiration.
Gone Too Soon adds to my collection of interludes and soundtracks meant to embody the feeling of a beach vacation: the surf, the sand, the sun. Gone Too Soon features some elements, though, that explore the darker, more ambient sides of this idea like traversing the shore at dawn, the feeling you get when you're all alone in a vast landscape, sharing an evening walk.
This is my longest project to date, and I did it all alone. I initially intended to make this a collective effort with my cousin, a great bassist, and Tim, from Weekend Warrior, my previous album. Alas, schedules are nearly impossible to synchronize with the responsibilities of jobs, homeownership, and child-rearing (in Tim's case).
I am proud to present to you my collection of musical interludes meant to pad the background of a barbecue, or serve as the soundtrack to all your getaways and vacations.
Brandia, Sean, Myles, Dad, Mom, Papa & Grandma And to you, the listener.
Big ups to Matt and Alex of Real Estate for so much inspiration.
