Broken Spindles started as a favor to friend. He wanted unreleased, instrumental music for a video project and asked if I would write a track for him. It had been quite a while since I’d thought about writing songs outside the collaboration of a band, so this interested me. Soon thereafter I began writing and something unanticipated happened; a surge of ideas started pouring out of me, which lead to three tracks, instead of one, with still more wanting to be born. So, after a few months of just getting them out of my head and into my laptop, I had what I thought to be an album, but in my haste I knew I had skipped the important part of making them sound a hundred percent. For this final step, I called and asked Mike Mogis if he would help me finish what would be my first album.
