THE STORY:
After recording and releasing THE ORANGE SONGS I returned to the studio in late 2004 to complete the sessions for NOW’S THE RIGHT TIME TO FEEL GOOD. Many of these songs deal with the understanding (and eventual overcoming) of behaviorial patterns whose origins lie in my very young childhood.

I always gravitated towards the same personality types. Unavailable. Distant. Passive-aggressive. Addicts. I amassed an entire discography of songs chronicling my struggle to love, understand, and ultimately save these people.

The concious reconstruction of one’s own thought-processes is an extended, challenging, but ultimately rewarding undertaking. NOW’S THE RIGHT TIME TO FEEL GOOD is the album that marked a significant transition in my life, in my thinking, and in my behaviors.
