I always dreamed of making an album that transported me to an unknown place. It can be a happy place or not. Just somewhere unfamiliar with possibilities for surprises. Lately, it's getting more difficult to day dream of the unknown for a person who has an insatiable appetite for information and knowledge like myself. Stories, images, and sounds are easy to find for the curious, truth-seeking, and wiki-obsessed mind. When is the last time you imagined what a place is like? How it will sound? How can I let my mind drift away and let it build the landscape of a world that may or may not exist? It's ok to be wrong.
Islet is my love letter to the unknown.
