Stating, “…I set out to make a record that was sort of a reflection of what I grew up listening to as a kid, which was a lot of 60’s, 70’s and 80’s music…it really is my proudest musical accomplishment. I’m really excited about this record and I feel like it really represents where I am musically at my age right now so I’m really proud of it.”
