Originally planned as a 35 track mega-album, this was scaled back, as I often do.
Largely written before I moved to New York City, some songs were scrapped, a few were combined, & almost all were changed.
I have to compare this to my previous album, "Get Brave!". ECO has more of me in it, rather than being all about ideas, ideals, idealism. I got a little preachy before, so took a step back from the soapbox to examine what I really want to say. My goal with this collection is to spread hope & inspiration, to show more of my humanity than my coldness as with "Get Brave!". Focusing on the positive.
My song "Whales", which was originally released on this album, has been moved to my "Hadopelagia" album.
We are dreaming life every day! Catch up to love! We have so much possibility in our own hands!
Have hope in humanity, we can do so much so let's DO something for the world, for the bullied & the hurt & the neglected & the lonely, let's save the polluted planet because NOW is the time! We can stop corporations from destroying everything beautiful & essential. We can change our perception of animals, abuse, communication, & love.
awareness, compassion, awaken to nurturing & knowledge, utilize your talents & grow, grow, GROW things everywhere!!
This album has a more global sound, & most songs are more basic & stripped down than the Get Brave! songs. It all comes together. The beautiful planet. This album contains one of my oldest songs (Can't Leave This Dream - from 2004, remade here) & most of my newest material.
There is a 12-track version of this album entitled simply "Jerome" that is online at various outlets for $7.00. Listen to the full tracks here to see if you want to purchase this version or "Jerome".
