about

The cover is Jupiter House! Basically the running theme in the album is that all those random people that you see out and about in the world have fears, insecurities, doubts, dreams, inside jokes with their friends, etc. They have souls. (I'm probably not supposed to just come out and tell you "the point" of the album... but there are lots of points. See if you can find them!)

Most of this album was recorded in my living room and sounds sort of ghetto, but three tracks were recorded in a real, live studio in Austin. So... that's pretty awesome!

Thanks: Jessica Terrill - album art.
Geoff Sirkel - Studio time
Carlo Canlas - violin on tracks 3 and 9
Junior Heflin, Kevin Walthall, Brandon Falk, Nathan Miller, Ross Appleton, and Matt Chandler for your words of wisdom in and between tracks.

There are no Random People!

Track Name: God Help Me
This song is about struggling with sin... but the worst kind of struggle: realizing that you don't care. It's about realizing that you have a calloused heart and begging God to mess you up. Hence the chorus: "God help my sin to feel like sin." I don't just want to feel guilty... I want to be repulsed by the smell of sin.


I didn't want to pull this card, but freaking Trenton Wheeler of Seryn is on this track. He really is in the choir! Star-power! I don't know if I was supposed to say that. (Also, he's on "Trees." If you turn up the volume at the end of Songs Start With You, you can hear me whisper "We're recording!" to Trenton to get him to stop playing with this ratchet, screwdriver thing.)
