about

When I first started putting together Retreat, I was thinking of the title as more of a spiritual retreat. The first track, "Enlightened Moment", fits this mold rather well. (YouTube) However, as I got further into the album, the title came to mean more of a personal retreat. With "Romance", it becomes a retreat for lovers. I’m not sure what type of work I was thinking about for "Work Song", it must have been more mental because it doesn’t seem to be very physical. With "Mourning Music", the character of the album changes as this is definitely music that accompanies personal tragedy. This event then overshadows the rest of the album. "Heebies and Jeebies" deals with the uncertainty that follows such an event. "Finding Our Way" is an attempt to come to grips with the situation. "Silk and Incense" is an another attempt at healing. With "Morning Music" the couple begins to start anew on a new and different life.
