The early seeds of this album began years ago, when I had just returned from living in India. There was so much on my mind then, almost like I was seeing with new eyes, the disparity between these two worlds that I had experienced: one of plenty, poverty and everything in-between. And yet, I was reminded again and again, that although culture, time, space, race and social standing might be different…we are all made of the same stuff, and share the same human condition. If we were each stripped of all we have, our differences fade very quickly. When there’s nothing to hide behind, we find, that we all wear the rags of life.

As time passed, these song-seedlings stuck with me, and instead of fading away, they germinated in my heart and flowered into a collection of songs that seemed to be a kind of modern-day spiritual. Like the spirituals of old, they speak of slavery, pain, suffering and death…yet they also speak of freedom, love, hope and a future. We each long for permanence. Yet, we cannot escape the reality that we are only ever passing through. Each day is a gift. That is why, from the beginning of this project, I wanted these songs to be a gift…a giving back somehow. I wanted this album to be an acknowledgment of the sufferings of mankind around the world; a voice for the voiceless; a whisper of hope. For, we each, at any moment could find ourselves in someone else's shoes…
