Some Notes

The songs on this CD are very special to me—they chronicle my life, the things most important to me, and the people I'm closest to; they recount experiences I've shared with friends and family, places I've visited, and unexpected twists my life has taken. Sometimes I speak better through my lyrics than I do in person, which is why my music focuses on the more honest, simple sides of my life. Within this music, you will find my joy, sorrow, heartbreak, and hopefully the inspiration to sit down on a rainy afternoon and write a song of your own.
—Bowen Staines
