A sonic oasis for getting away from it all, ‘Clearly’ is a delightful cross section of superbly performed, insightful acoustic guitar based instrumental music.
This was my first album as a solo artist; I had always previously been in bands. I went into the project thinking that if this was the only record I would ever make (as a solo artist) I should include what I felt were the best-of-the-best I had composed up to that point. Honestly, I wasn't sure there would be more records after this.
That's why it is a bit of both Fingerstyle and multi-instrument compositions. At the time I had been primarily listening to and composing Fingerstyle songs. I didn't have enough to fill an album, and there were songs from my band days I felt strongly about having on this record.
