Find The Sun

ALBUM NOTES

Every song in this collection Joe Deleault and I wrote for projects of mine produced with my partners Morgan Murphy and Lori Gigliotti Murphy through our company Whitebridge Farm Productions. The anthemic ON GOLDEN POND we created with the inimitable Natalie MacMaster for the first ever time I directed my own play. Same with THE FATHER DAUGHTER DANCE, which Carly Simon blessed us by collaborating on. FIND THE SUN, NOT SUPPOSED TO, SAY GOODBYE and THIS TOO WILL PASS are on the TIME AND CHARGES soundtrack. THIS ISN’T YOUR PARTY and SOMEONE TO CARE we wrote for my play POLITICAL SUICIDE. And LOOK AROUND, THE LITTLE TOWN TANGO and SOCIETY’S EYES are from my newest film HEAVENLY ANGLE. They’re all meant to be extensions of the emotion of the pieces, each succeeded beyond our wildest dreams, and each artist has been an absolute pleasure and honor to work with.
