Out of Character
Out of Character is the musical embodiment of an artist in development. Developed in a time of transition, as I say goodbye to my role as a theatre teacher and move towards unknown adventures in the wider world of theatre and music, this album has become the story of that journey. I am incredibly indebted to Scott Bradley, my creative collaborator, who has poured as much of himself into this recording as I have. His artistic contributions have greatly elevated my dreams of what this album could be. I am beyond grateful for his ideas, his coaching, his partnership, and his friendship. I hope you enjoy sharing in this work and that the story this album tells connects with your own journey.
