    Whats the meaning behind the album title?

    It kind of an extended metaphor in the lyrics of the title track, so I won't spoil it too much. But that song is about moving in with my girlfriend (now wife) after graduating from college.
     
  7. Nice, man! I dig the new song too. Can't wait to hear the rest of the album.

    Awww yeah. Lots of blood rushing to the head on this album. And pet sounds! (Seriously, I think you can faintly hear one of my cats meowing in the background somewhere.)

    I'd say it's a mix between alt-country and simple singer-songwriter based folk music.

    Honestly, I hear some very early JV in the single. Give you a very home-y feeling.

    Honestly, there are so many influences here that it's hard to classify. Like, "Money Down" is definitely a country song, but there's also a Motown-inspired track, a song inspired by Chase This Light-era Jimmy Eat World, and a big arena rock ballad. And as with anything I do, there's a lot of Springsteen and Butch Walker in there too.

    Hey Craig, listening to this now. Only a few songs in but sounds great so far! Love the lyrics especially.
