Dust is my collection of festive fireside sketches for 2014, written while on tour in China towards the end of summer. 'Dust' refers to simplicity and to fragility, a dusting of snow, the dust of the woodshed (or the stable, if you prefer...)
The EP examines mortality and human limitations. I wanted the songs to feel as simple and as bare as I could muster. I wanted you to be able to hear the raw imperfections in my singing and playing, because these embody the fragility about which I'm writing.
As always, my fireside sketches are meant for you to be able to close your eyes and imagine that my feathered friends and I have set up around you and started busking in that late-night, mid-winter style. I hope you enjoy the experience.
