Lounge Singer was a collection of half older songs/half new songs that I collected together to form my first solo album. As with most of my songwriting, I pulled ideas and themes somewhat stream of consciousness style from my own experiences without ever trying to reference anything specific.
I like to note that there isn't a single guitar on the whole album. I think that with my main rock band, Bend Sinister, things always end up going a certain way when you start adding guitars and distortion. With Lounge Singer, I really wanted to let it breathe and have the piano and vocals be the driving force.
