about

Sometimes at night fireflies light up; and so we catch them and put them in a jar. Living beings they are, and little lamps they become until they burn out and die. They serve one purpose--to entertain. A song holds within itself a certain power of the same measure. When it is created, it holds captive the thoughts and ideas, emotions and inner turmoil of its creator...over time the song grows and evolves, and though it may mean different things to different people, its final end is to give the listener pleasure. And so, here you are--my jar of fireflies.

Recorded at Summer Sky Studios.

A tale of heartbreak, fragility, tension, resolution, deep longing & what-could've-beens, Feather & a Leaf continues the dreamy artistic tone that we loved so much in Firefly Garden, to a poignant lyrical exploration of the human capacity to love. ... more
