For the past 5 years I have been working without pause on trying to be the best I could be at this strange thing I do- doing my best to power through any hurdle that presented itself, be it personal or professional. I have always written from the heart, and done my best to remain transparent as an artist and an individual.
You guys have been with me the whole way, and have given me such amazing inspiration throughout this strange birth of a 'career'. Simply writing here is not enough to show you how grateful I am, and I wish there was a more tangible way for me to show you, but I just want you to know in your hearts that it means the world to me, and that I know for a fact I would not be anywhere close to where I am if it weren't for the unwavering support and love you have shown me.
It is incredibly humbling that you have all been so kind to me, and I hope with every future release you feel more and more gratitude, because it is most certainly due to you.
Thank you guys so much.

"This body's not a a temple, it's a prison."
For a split second I was like "Oh that's crazy, that's a lyric in a Dear Hunter song. Hey wait..." and as I surveyed the room, I spotted 6 people wearing various Dear Hunter shirts and I started laughing hysterically.
Apparently I was the second victim of a surprise "dress like someone on the team" day XD We had previously dressed in flannel and blue jeans to mimic one of the more outdoorsy guys in the office.
Coincidentally, but not that unlikely (maybe a 1 in 4 chance?), I was wearing one of my TDH shirts. I'm in the brown:

In the past, with acts 1-3, I have had to be so incredibly stubborn and steadfast in the production of the records to try and maintain the very specific scope of each record. Even though the records are expansive, and eclectic, very little was left up to chance, and almost nothing was left up to improvisation. This is the way I need to make concept records.
Migrant is the other end... of the... spectrum. So much of it was on the spot, small changes, little flubs that were kept, because it is meant to be a very human record.
Now I didn't mean to say 'I will never finish the act records'. Realistically, I could never leave them unfinished. What will most likely happen is this: I will write the records on off time over the next year or so, then I will try and work in studio time when I can to complete it on my own, and mix it on my own as well... simultaneously I will be working on the next 'proper' release from the dear hunter.
I don't want you guys to feel that I have abandoned anything. I just feel very inspired by the work on Migrant, and want to see where that takes me. The Act records HAVE to be in a fairly particular style - I can't just slap a tree on Migrant 2 and call it act IV... its has to be right, and it has to be real... always keep it real.
