The Call Room is...
A collection of my experiences brought together and expressed through words, rhythms, and melodies in an attempt to connect with any and all who can relate. My hope for this album was to provide a link between life's ups and downs and how we conquer them. No matter who you are, where life is taking you, or what you're enduring, I hope there is a track that calls out to you!
I wrote the entire album while working in a Call Center and it was my co-workers who helped inspire me to write it. I spent over a year working on the album. I decided a couple of months in that instead of singing everything myself, or having my band sing the whole thing, I wanted to feature a number of artists I’ve met throughout the year, so that each track would have a different feel and emotion. Plus all the artists I've met this year are incredible people and I thought it would be awesome to have everyone on one album!
I produced, recorded, composed, mixed and mastered the entire album in my living room with 1 microphone and my laptop.
