I want to really personally thank each and every person that has purchased my music. More than making a penny from any of this, hearing such great comments has really inspired me to give the best that I have to the people that appreciate it (that's you!). I really hope that this effort is reflected in the art that I present to you here.
I was not sure how to begin or end this release. In the end, I realize that concept albums are my favorite, and I wanted to create music that loosely represented life. Looking both ways at my parents and my kids, I realize that we are moving along the inescapable path of time. Each song (and title) represents a feeling in life that is universal (positive and negative) and I honestly set forth to express these moments within the music. I really hope that this music makes you feel something, and helps you to create moments that enhance your emotions. Every fleeting moment that we have on Mother Earth is meaningful, and every person is meaningful to another in some way.
Along the way, I'm managed to discover the unbelievable music of the artist Wings Of An Angel (wingsofanangel.bandcamp.com) through the release 'Our Forgotten Infinity And The Absolute Zero' (wingsofanangel.bandcamp.com/album/our-forgotten-infinity-and-the-absolute-zero-2). We have had some very good exchanges of musical inspiration and have expressed equal admiration and desire to collaborate in some manner. I was presented a very special musical outing that was inspired by this as well as my past releases entitled 'Reason Nitrate'. There was no way that we couldn't put this music together as our gift to those seeking solace and beauty in the form of a very long play release. Thus, we are combining our 2 efforts into 1.
Feel free to use the music in any way, shape, or form. Please just give us credit, and if you like this release, feel free to share it. Feel free to contact us regarding this or any other release. Honestly, feedback is inspiring!
Special thanks to (my brother-from-another-mother) Paul Simmonds for allowing me to use the title from his amazing mix 'A Requiem For Dead Strangers' (www.mixcloud.com/junkyardangel/a-requiem-for-dead-strangers/). Another thanks to my buddy Denis Disia (disia.bandcamp.com) that runs Grani Radioshow (www.mixcloud.com/grani/) for creating the font for this album.
Huge, HUGE (!) thanks to Wings Of An Angel. Not only for collaborating with me, but being a huge inspiration to me musically, melodically, and spiritually.
