Debut Album from Lost Puppy. Hailing from Philly and having received a undergrad degree from a prominent Boston music school, This humble singer songwriter embarked on a massive inward journey.  His music resonates with influences I was happy to help flesh out as diverse as: Elliott Smith, Queens of the Stone Age, Joy Formidable, Beach Boys, Sylvia Plath, Rilo Kiley and Daniel Johnston. (Dan's Thoughts)

Steve Cherkassky-
"I wanted the record to feel like a living, breathing entity that confides its deepest, darkest secrets to you as if there were no place else to go. Every nuance of the emotional spectrum would be felt, just as if you were staring into the eyes of your closest friend. That's why the order is the way it is. I love psychology. The tracks are ordered in parallel to the Kuhbler-Ross model of grief (D.A.B.D.A).  it's a way of relating a piece of art to the human experience."
