About "The Apple Tree"

In 2014, I began a program in our local detention center entitled, "Your Story / Your Song" in which I met one-on-one with a detainee over a period of time hearing their story and encouraging them in the writing process.

The first person I worked with was Bridget Huisman for whom I wrote the title track of this EP, "The Apple Tree." The four songs in this collection tell the story of people who find themselves in the muck, mire and margins of life. They are everyday people who feel their stories don't matter, but when told through a melody take on an unexpected significance.

This work is dedicated to them.
