Hamartia is a collection of songs recorded over 18 months in multiple rain-soaked apartments in Portland Oregon. In each song, the singer takes on a different persona, and a different voice.
My songwriting process is something like this:
1. Find a part of myself in need of exploration
2. Let the song lead the way
3. Remove all traces of Self
That last one is the kicker. If I've effectively removed my Self from the piece, it will touch on something universal. If not, well I guess it's just a self portrait, and hopefully, crafted well enough to enjoy.
Love and thanks to all the people who supported, and contributed to, the making of this album. It is a piece of work that I'm proud of, and I couldn't have done it without you all.
