about

I wrote and produced Waxwing very quickly from some ideas which had been spinning around in my head. Most of it, if I remember correctly, was recorded in the living room of my old house in California, over a couple of Saturday afternoons in August, with a single Oktava Soviet-era small-diaphragm condenser microphone. I was 26.

I wrote many of the guitar parts in various alternate tunings, which I hadn't really experimented with before this album. So this was the first time I really moved away from standard tuning, and it dropped my songwriting into a darker, more introspective furrow which I continue to plow.

The songs explore the emotional response to loss; surprise, grief, bereavement, and also adjustment and contemplation of the future. I have always liked the record, and I place it among the two or three albums I am most proud of. I hope you like this gently remastered version.

The album is dedicated to my friend Stewart W. Even though it has been many years, I still miss you. Peace brother xx
