Hi I'm a proud Hoot Owl. :) Adam Young...his voice, lyrics and music are perfect for me ♥
Some of the songs on the Sky Sailing record were milestones for me at the time the album was put together, for instance, the song entitled Sailboats was the first song I’d ever written lyrics for. I began writing as a solo instrumentalist, and wanted nothing to do with lyrical music so it was a huge first step. Little things like that add up and truly make An Airplane Carried Me To Bed a kind of sentimental journey for me. There’s a captured degree of antiquated innocence, a dusty naivety if you will, and thus, an honest aesthetic that would’ve been lost, had I re-recorded the record right before releasing. I basically fell in love with the mistakes I originally made because it gave the record so much character.
