The railroad motif represents my desire to help others pass over the challenges that separate them from a life closer to our Heavenly Father as well as my drive to follow my calling and to encourage others toward their goals, as well. With this album, I have embraced a mission to spread—through songwriting and performance—the inspiration I receive. Not only that, the album title alludes to the potential of the songs to appeal to general audiences and Christian listeners alike, bridging an unnecessary divide.
“OMG” is my response to the overuse of the title expression, and is my way of encouraging us to take care with our every word, action and thought. On this track, I tried several different adjectives before settling on the first one that popped in my head: “it’s bountiful,” which perfectly expresses how very vast His love for us is. The first electronic riff for “What About Us” first came to me while in the hospital of my cousin, when the machines pumping her with fluids and painkillers both began beeping an alarm… it was a moment when I realized how little we value the importance of our health… and a reminder to pray for better living situations for all of those around us. All of the songs have their own stories, but I will leave their specific interpretations up to you. I hope you enjoy them and hope you'll feel free to send me your comments.
