After making 3 or 4 very maximalist and multilayered albums I wanted to make a very simple acoustic album and set myself a few rules. No click track, no MIDI instruments and most importantly of all, no drums or percussion of any kind. It was a very comfortable recording experience using just one USB mic and my laptop to record all of these songs.

I sent three of them off to Terrill and I think the piano layers he sent back are some of the most beautiful performances he's ever done on a Nature's Neighbor album.

I reconnected with Daniel Lee in a big way on this album as well. Visiting his home in Oak Park we sat down and played acoustic guitars just as we had back when we lived together in 2010 and 2011.

At the end of it I came out with 9 acoustic tracks. Simple songs for a very complex time.
