Just got the thrilling news this AM that "Pearl" is nominated for an Academy Award.
Director Patrick Osborne is such a formidable story-teller (he won an Oscar 2 years ago for "Feast" so lets hope lightning strikes twice). I got to write the lyrics and co-write/produce the music with my dear Pollen Partners, JJ Wiesler and Scot Stafford for this timeless father-daughter story, set inside their roving home, an 80s hatchback named.....Pearl.
I stopped keeping a journal years ago. These albums (6 now!) have become a substitute: a place to log snapshots, stories, and observations I’ve made along the way.
The 5 years since my last record, 6 Spoons of Honey, have been a wild ride. The journal entry would start with a long slow-mo fall down a steep staircase that left me with a broken transverse process and a severely herniated L5-S1, unable to hold up my then infant son.
