about

Although we had been preparing for 9 months leading up to Asher’s arrival on planet earth, never before had my heart been so greatly transformed than in the instant I first saw and heard him. His scream was an absolute force and hearing it for the first time made my heart flood with emotional intensity which I had never dreamt. Anticipating his coming I was excited, scared and somewhat in denial that I would actually have a child and be a father. Suddenly it became real as in a single moment I felt what I imagine most women must from the time they are little girls playing with dolls and dreaming of having babies, all the way through carrying their child in the womb.

There is little to do as new parents but admire your child and take it all in, which we were very fortunate to have almost 4 months to do just that. It was a peaceful time. Between feedings and diaper changes I would pick up my guitar and just react to the atmosphere, hopefully without disrupting it. My wife took note that it seemed to calm Asher. I just set up a microphone and began recording. Over the next several weeks, with the intention of making something I imagined would be soothing for the baby, I recorded some quick ambient “songs” and put together a CD that we could play for him. I would continue to mold and layer the songs over the following weeks. Months later I realized that I had inadvertently made what would eventually become “Lullabies For Asher." The profound experience of becoming a father allowed me to find my voice and gave me (the time and) a platform to create from a pure place, in a space where judgment and pretense were absent. And this was the inception of Lullabies.

The writing and recording processes for me are very much intertwined. I most often will start with a guitar, creating noise/pad type textures spontaneously. From there I will listen and with a certain kind of meditative focus I can draw melodies and rhythm from out of that noise.
