This album came into being as a hurried substitute for my senior recital at Berklee College of Music after the school closed in March due to the pandemic. It is a collection of tunes and songs that I would have played live with a number of friends, recorded remotely by myself and my fellow players each in our homes far away from each other. Showcasing much of what I have learned at Berklee, it is an ending and a beginning, serving as both a culmination of my four years in college and my soft debut into the professional music world. It's my first solo record, and though it may be homemade and a little rough around the edges, it is still a project that I ended up being proud of. If anything, it will be a time capsule of my time at Berklee and the crazy rollercoaster ride of the final semester of a wonderful four years.
