2016 was an interesting year for our world — to say the least. I decided to channel my unsettled energy into something creative, so I holed up in my studio for much of November/December. The result is nine new songs which capture the world’s unsettled energy at this moment. The lead track, “All the Chaos”, ushers in a slow rolling tension with a contrastingly calm vocal. “Newsfeed Zombie” stomps to the turbulence, echoing the bombardment of information we receive in the digital age. “Coming From” deals with these conflicts on a personal level. “No Silence” points to the moment of confusion where we question ourselves and everything around us. “Signs” reminds us of our right to free speech, while “Tread” was inspired by the protests at Standing Rock. “Inches Away” draws attention to how close we are to one another, and to catastrophe. “Some Days” evokes feelings of giving up, and “I Will Grow”, the album's closing track, leaves us with hope. The new album title is appropriately enough, “The Misinformation Age” - A reflection from the brink of the dystopian future that is creeping upon us, where everything seems upside down.
