I recorded this CD the summer of 2014. A few months prior, I was diagnosed with cancer (Squamous Cell Carcinoma), plus, my sister-in-law was dying of Pancreatic Cancer at the same time. Needless to say, this was a very emotional and scary time for me. I was not sure what would be on the other side of my treatments for me, so I decided to throw this “hail Mary” of a pass and ask some wonderful musicians and friends help me put this album together on rather short notice. The concepts for the tunes came to me during a solo road trip out to Philadelphia and back when I was first diagnosed. (Hence, all the street sign references for the songs.)

Currently, I am enjoying a clean bill of health, but it was quite a journey getting there! I hope you enjoy.
