Well, it's about time I did this, my FIRST official cbg release.

For BANDCAMP FRIDAY.

Recorded March 31, 2021 (with the exception of the final track, which was recorded on April 1) at STUDIO SOUNDSCRAPE.

This is a deeply personal statement, reflecting ten years since the transitioning of my mother and twenty two years of my father. It is also a meditation on our current situation in the world with the pandemic and all the uncertainties we currently face. Interesting that March 28 (the day I lost my mother) coincides this year with Palm Sunday. My cross to bear now.

Recorded on a rainy day welcoming the blossoms of Spring and a feeling of renewal. This is solo four string electric tin cigar box guitar in NEW STANDARD TUNING, nothing else.

A moment of thought in a time of uncertainty slowly illumined by a ray of hope.

This is totally my speed brother. Love it. I like to folks using CBGs in non-traditional ways.

Meditative and ethereal. Thank you.
