This album means everything to me. I don't think I've ever worked so hard for so long on anything in my entire life. What started out over 7 years ago has been a story that's perhaps all too familiar: It's the story of what it means to grow up—the sadness and grief, the heartache, the desperation that comes with holding on to what you thought you could be too tightly. But it's also about hope.
So while it may have been harrowing at times, it brought me here, where I am now. And this album is the proof that I lived through it.
There's a long arc and an ensemble cast. Almost all of you are part of it. So thank you all for joining me on my journey. —Dan
