When did you leading hear it?
Shortly after the album discharge.
How does music such as this endow with superhuman insight you in your work?
Storytelling ballads are extremely good for transporting my mind into a diverging world, filling it with vast amounts of imagery. Imagery that I am able to tug ideas from directly or inspiration with respect to other pieces. The Decemberists are masters in using ballads to make known stories in their music.

Not much, really. It has ever reminded me of my wife and our stanch connection.
What upcoming projects do you hold ?
Unfortunately, not much at this time. I’m operating on new pieces to showcase at the Chicago Comics and Entertainment Expo (C2E2) this year.
