Around May of 2014 I was kindly asked by Levi’s® Skateboarding if I would score the music for a documentary. This was novel to me so I was stoked to give it a shot. It had been several years since I’d recorded a solo record- twas a good enough reason to get back in the gym.
At the time I thought it was just a skate documentary. I had no idea it was simmering to become such a beautiful film, with a hopeful, life-affirming theme. I still get misty when I watch it.
A few months earlier, I was recovering from a heavy incident and was deeply moved by the deluge of love and support from family, friends, fans, and strangers. Without them I can honestly say that I wouldn't be in the mighty fine place that I am today.
This humble recording is my gift to you.
You didn't have to reach out, didn't have to prop me up, but ya did anyway. Selflessly, from a compassionate and human place in your heart.
You made this recording as much as I did.
I know it ain't much but it’s here if you want it.
Watch the film. With any luck the music will uplift you in some small way, the way you did me.
