On episode one of my new web series “Phonogenics 101” we discussed the Go Go’s iconic debut album “Beauty And The Beat” track by track.

I knew when I was writing and releasing my album The Box I was on a different journey than my last few albums. Borne out of the deaths of my father and step-father, as well as various long drives on the East coast – I found myself in a creative space very similar to the albums I made in the early/mid 90s.
When people started writing to me about what this album meant to them I was moved and relieved. I am confident that I can always work a crowd with a good raucous bop. To be back in a space of lo-fi self-reflection felt risky at best.
I am so appreciate of people sharing their stories of what this record means to them. Here is a collection of some of those stories. If you have any you’d like to share feel free to send them in and I will add them.
