Hanging Up The Moon is a 'self titled' 11 track album comprising of a series of home recordings.
It's been awhile since I've done something musically and this album is the result of me trying to satisfy that urge to get back at music making. Since I currently do not have the time to commit to my band, the only way forward is to do this alone and at home. All the recordings took place in ungodly hours (hence the moniker), mostly because that's really the only window of time I have. The stillness of the night and early mornings also helped, for I was simply working on this album in my study and not a sound proof studio.
In terms of the music, its really raw and simple stuff. I wanted to get back to writing songs that I can play in their entirety using just a guitar or ukulele, campfire songs if you'd like. Going folk this time around allowed me to better focus on the crafting of words. The minimal instrumentation was also fitting in terms of the mood and feelings I was trying to convey. The process of writing these songs and getting them out of my head have been rather therapeutic for me. I do hope you will enjoy listening to the album as much as I enjoyed making it.
