About my album

The Heart is the Hunter

Love is the kill.

The Heart is the Hunter

We succumb to her will.

My father wrote me a song. He wrote it for me when I was going through a tough transition in my life and he nailed it. It's about the agony and ecstasy of love, and how the Heart is the compass and the comfort for that pain and growth. The song is titled "The Heart is the Hunter" and its spirit is my compass for the project.
 

I love the albums of Emmy Lou and Dolly and Linda Ronstadt from the ‘70s and on. They put their own stamp on some of the best songs of their generation. I love hearing the voice and stylistic personality of the artist come through on a familiar song. It's about perspective, story-telling, and taking you to a place you already know but making it new and breathing fresh life into it while reminding you why it was so meaningful in the first place.

To sum "Heart" up: a classic vocal record, full of aching beauty with punch and grit, that will stay in your rotation for years to come. From 80’s modernity to Alt-Nashville country, the album takes you deep into heartbreak and grace with songs from Cohen, Newman, Gabriel, and some phenomenal originals. It’s a deeply poetic record where understatement and nuance invite the listener in deeper.  Mixed and mastered in Nashville with Neilson Hubbard (The Orphan Brigade) & Jim DeMain (Dolly Parton, Robert Plant, Steve Earle). Featuring John O’Reilly, Jr. (El Vy, FUN) on drums and Peter Ostroushko (Prairie Home Companion, Dylan’s “Blood on the Tracks”) on mandolin.
