I have stood in a lot of hows that were so painful I wondered if I would ever make it to the other side.
But I did, every time.
Even though I have stood dangerously close to gaping abyss, like so many before me.
For humanity is a resilient species, which can rise from the ashes and turn the ugly into something beautiful.
This album is about why.
The why that has carried me through the painful hows that human life is founded upon.
Uncertainty. Injustice. Suffering.
The why that carries me is that humans, despite these circumstances, more often choose to do good.
The music on this album is carefully selected to remind us of this goodness.
Music that lovers have shared their first kiss to. That teenagers have danced to.
That children have been born to. That people have remembered each other by.
“He who has a why to live, can bare almost any how”.
This music is my why, and hopefully you can find comfort through it.
Whatever how you are standing in.
