With the completion of each CD, the Circus Is In Town being my fourth, I feel a great sense of satisfaction but I am also left with somewhat of a vacuum. I began this project well over a year ago and as with the other CDs, creating and working on "Circus" has been accompanied by and maybe the catalyst for so many personal changes.

My last recording, "Velvet Hand" has all instrumental compositions, so I decided that this would be a project of lyrical songs. Within the lyrics are stories written from my perspective, the realities that I see and observe around me, maybe a little dark and pessimistic, but none the less a reality of the times we live in. So welcome to the Big Top. Ladies and Gentlemen, step right up - the circus is in town!
