Inspired by a new romance, and the road.  In 2014, I was preparing for a six-month national tour called AS THE CROW FLIES.  Just before leaving—and while on the tour--I created several songs that reflect the emotions and magic of a developing relationship.   On the road, my writing was inspired by the struggle of distance from my partner, my solitude and my thoughts of home, family and friends.  I returned to Eugene in February of 2015, and Meg and I renewed our connection.  In July of that year, my father passed away.  The final song on the CD is a tribute to my him--Dayton Patrick--and a reflection on our temporary journey on earth.
