american spirit was an album written over the period of two weeks at the end of winter 2013, most of it in the early morning hours when i couldn't sleep. it is a much-needed cathartic release of everything i had collected to say up until now in the best (and only) way i truly know how to say anything. it is dedicated to every person i love and every aspect of myself that i loathe. i apologize in advance
released April 12, 2013
this album was recorded in a dorm room at the univ. of rhode island using minimal resources and with as few takes as possible. jacob telford mixed and mastered everything. i wrote everything.
extra special thanks to: jake, kate, sean, zack, akshay, dj, joe, conor, joel, maddie, frank and randall (my instruments), my parents, coffee, cold takeout food, cough drops, and you.
