Story

"This is a song about the joy of everyday life, particularly the revelation of the preciousness of this moment, right here, right now. After the events of September 11, 2000, I went into the only significant songwriting lapse I've had. When I came out of it, this is the first thing I wanted to say. I see Revelation musically as a train, chugging along and gaining momentum as it goes."

Story

"I used to live near a fantastic art museum in Princeton, NJ which had 3 or 4 Gauguin paintings. His story, leaving his bourgeois life as a stockbroker behind to eventually become a painter in Polynesia is a fascinating one. I think a lot of us have our own personal Gauguin stories--the leaps we have made to follow our passions."

Story

"I was traveling alone and stopped in a cafe on the dusty side of town. There was an attractive dark haired woman and I wondered about her story..."

Story

Have you ever thought "you're going to miss me when I'm gone"? Well, this is an expression of that feeling. Not a gentle tune, but I like the fiery energy of it.

Story

"One whiff of perfume can really get imagination and curiosity going. It may be a scent which is externally applied but... it gives the impression of radiating from the skin, and let's face it, skin can be intimate! This one was inspired by those times when the subtle scent of perfume ('just a little, not too much') has turned my head and aroused my curiosity."

Story

"I really have a soft spot for this particular song. I wrote it while living near Princeton, New Jersey. With this one the guitar came first, almost in its entirety. I really didn't know what I wanted to say. I just asked: 'what is this music saying?' and went from there. I think that musically Time With You is something of a cross between the Pretenders' 'Don't Get Me Wrong' and John Harford's 'Gentle on My Mind!'"
