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, and the quiet desperation that comes with holding on too tightly to what you thought you could be. 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. And I'm incredibly grateful to everyone who's joined me along the way. With much love, Dan.
