Figs From Thistles 

On my first album, "A Sea Of Empty Faces," I have a song called "Neat." It's about an outlaw at the end of his career. His life was ruined, and he resorts to alcohol to forget his trouble. I wanted…

Mr. Gray 

I've mentioned that occasionally I write songs that I'm not sure about, and for some reason they become the songs people resonate with. Mr. Gray happens to be the best example of my discography. Any time I write a song…

Awake, O Sleeper! 

The opening track to the album, "Another Anodyne," sets up the album both thematically as well as conceptually. For the theme of "Another Anodyne," I wanted to set up the idea that there are many emotions and situations that we…
