I recorded Mucho Leo over the course of about a year. It took time because I made it entirely alone. Generally I wrote a song, and within a short time, I would spend a day or maybe two days in the studio creating a spontaneous arrangement of the song, recording all the instruments and singing. In some cases I recorded the vocals into my phone and then copied them into the computer.
The songs themselves tell a story – my story. “Speak To Me In Spanish” and “Where Have I Been” are nostalgic. They remember my childhood and young adulthood, early love, and time spent living in Europe. “Tonight Someone Is Me”, “After The Damage Is Done” and “Why Can’t I Have What I Want” are songs of searching and failing. And “Complete”, “Wondering”, and “Light” are songs of joy, love and optimism.
