'You haven't suffered yet', are words of wisdom spoken by my father. This is the title of one of twelve new songs representing an honest disclosure of life's struggles and stumbling pathways from my new CD, CITIZEN FRAIL. Compared to my previous release, THE GULF BETWEEN, this record is a similar mix of relational and personal stories about the difficulties of life that bounce us around, leaving us without direction. It also searches for what is pulling us through, a glimmer of hope, a purpose for all we endure. 'Where's the peace?' Maybe it lies in the thick muck of living day to day, embracing life's struggles, longing for something more... ...aching, waiting, the everything we are, the scars, shades of blue, the aim for what is true, slipping in the carnival motion, swirling away from this scene, hoping, deep in the heart, it's anticipation's fond permission.
