The Old Brag Of My Heart
This album is the manifestation of a very sad time in my life: the death of a friend, the loss of a love, the end of my parents' marriage, and a sustained period of listless loneliness. The title, "The Old Brag Of My Heart", is an excerpt from a Sylvia Plath book that I found in a secondhand bookstore in London, ON: "I took a deep breath and listened to the old brag of my heart: I am, I am, I am". I remember putting the book down and listening to my heart after reading that, feeling very alone. I am proud that this piece of art could emerge from something so dark. I hope that it provides you with some kind of solace, comfort, and most importantly, with hope.
