The songs on this record were all primarily written when I was in graduate school at UNC Pembroke. Life there was boring and frustrating at times but it was a valuable time of reflection. “Huckleberry Finn” is definitely my favorite – I heard the chorus in my head as I read Chronicles, Vol. 1 by Bob Dylan. “In Dreams” was written in about 30 minutes on my birthday in 2004. It was a tough time for me, but writing songs got me through it.
