For years we were living in different cities trying to still be a band and to maintain a five person relationship. That physical disconnect is a big part of these songs. They also deal with a different type of disconnect – the difference between what you perceive and what is really happening, dreams and waking life, personal experience and that of others.
We are indebted to so many people who have helped us with this project. Thank you to Sam and Jean, Theresa and Frank, Andrée and Henry, Orpha and Paul, Kelly and Becky who have all been unwaveringly supportive of our crazy road trips and missed family events.
