Avoiding Trainwrecks

Avoiding Trainwrecks is the follow-up to 2014's Side Effects. Trainwrecks turns farther in and farther out, looking to the possibilities that shadow and light both the past and the future. Featuring  guitar-viol expertly arranged and performed by Kalen Willits (who also produced Avoiding Trainwrecks), the album is at once quiet and haunting. Inspired by art, it explores the line between certainty and doubt, forgiveness and rage, loneliness and community.

Side Effects is my first album. The songs here were written between 2009 and 2013 and trace my high school career (read: songs I wrote when I was fourteen got published!) as well as the beginnings of college. It lives in the deep feeling of the unexpected: the family and its dissolution, the way friendship morphs and breaks and re-creates itself, loves gained and lost, and always the question of hope lingering despite (and because of) the evidence.
