“With an audible appreciation for Tori Amos and Nine Inch Nails, hard-hitting “The Curse” shines with breath-catching terror. The title track “Why Do We Sing” begs of everyone to discover why any effort is offered towards any action. Closing out on “Prairie Rose”, a tribute to Stephanie Croff’s father, the heart of her understanding is revealed–that amongst all of the thorns rises a fragrant rose.”
This is such a vivid and vast recording for me. I wrote most of it when I’d get home from work and before the “Ona boys” would get into the studio. I loved so much getting to go to Canada to have Joby mix/master it, meeting his family this way was such an absolute treat. A heartwarming experience that started many beautiful northern friendships.
