MANLEY album notes

It's a pretty big deal to name your album after yourself. You're pulling a lot of exposure. You name it anything else, and if people don't like it, you can still separate yourself from it. You can say they didn't like the album. Oh well. You name it after yourself, and if they don't like it, are they really saying that they don't like you? Mayhaps.


Still. You get to a point in your life where you'd like to put something out there that succinctly represents who you are, all that you have become, up to a certain point-- up to this point....


So who am I?


I am a storyteller that plays the bass guitar. Other than the drum loops, I also played all of the other instruments on this double vinyl LP recording. I wrote the songs. I produced and engineered the project, so I suppose it really is all on me. It is my hope that I've learned a few things in my years on the planet. It is my hope that I've managed to communicate these things on this album in a way that people can take them in. I made it a point not to make this a bass gymnastics album. As much as I love bass, I set out to make an album of songs that can stand on their own. (That being said, I did include one bass instrumental, the opening track, Overture. I am, after all, as much as I am anything else-- a bass player : >)
