Details:
The concept of a seasons album came to me a few years ago as I began relating my circumstances to each of the four seasons and how fleeting they are. I was reminded how each of them pass with all they entail. This was somewhat encouraging to me as I was going through a particular rough patch, which I likened to a harsh winter. I knew spring was on the way! But I was also reminded that even the best of times can quickly fade and that we must always prepare emotionally and spiritually for the battles ahead.

As I began work on the album I started to head in my usual direction of working through electronic beats and instruments. I eventually came to the conclusion that, just like the season themselves, I wanted to keep the music as organic sounding as possible, though still utilizing electronic means. This meant I had to suddenly change course and begin a new, but I believe this new direction played a large part in inspiring me to write the remaining songs. Most notably the title track, "Seasons". Two version of this song would not only come to set the stage for the album, but close it as well.

I knew for certain that piano would play a major part on the album. Since I am not a pianist I knew that would require finding just the right person who would not only understand my vision, but would also have the capability of translating it into music. I approached my Pastor and worship leader, Daniel Gardner, who was already well known for several popular praise and worship songs that were being sung in churches around the country. His rich, emotional piano compositions provided the perfect backdrop to complete the audio landscape already painted in my mind. I knew with his contribution I would finally have the tools necessary to see the project through.

To finally bring the album together I incorporated an acoustic guitar solo by Gregory Platte on "Summer" and Autumn Ford completed a colored pencil drawing of a tree displaying the transitions of the four seasons. This drawing complimented the organic theme perfectly.
