“At the start of the year, I assembled Mood Music For Introverts, an album about the joys of a quiet night at home alone or with just a few friends. It came out in March and then ironically the whole world went into quarantine and we were all having quiet months at home alone or with just a few friends. I couldn’t go out and play shows. To stay sane, I just kept recording and made this sequel, More Mood Music. This record differs from its predecessor in that some of the songs are tied thematically with the idea of using music as a means of connectivity despite distance.
More than half of the songs were written during the first months of the pandemic. All but one song was written in the last year. In the past, I would write and make demos and then think about what songs I wanted to record in a proper studio with a producer. After recording, I would then sit on the songs before finally putting them out. Sometimes I would wait a year or two. With all the craziness going on right now, I am aware of the finiteness of time. I have a lot of music in my head that I want to finish. I am more confident in setting up my home studio to make these “mood music” types of recordings. Like the first Mood Music, I mixed these songs myself and played most of the instruments. However, quarantine did leave me missing playing other musicians. Via socially distanced collaborations More Mood Music has some guests appearances on certain tracks – Adam DeAscentis (bass) and Dan Cobert (piano) who often play in my NYC live band, Nathan Hedges (bass and lead guitar) who is in the New Preservation Society with me, and then Jay Nemeyer (lead and slide guitar) who has graciously been appearing on my records since the beginning. I do not know when I will step onstage in front of an audience again. In the meantime, I am going to keep recording and try to not go too crazy.”
