This album is a unique listening experience from start to finish. Lyrically, it is an exploration of pain, darkness, and hope. It was recorded in various studios all over the United States, and it cuts across multiple musical styles and genres.
"Set sail is a record unlike any I have ever heard. It breaks the conventional rules of album production, and I am proud of that. It was recorded over a span of several years, in various studios with different musicians and different mixing engineers. In some places it is thoroughly edited, fine-tuned, and dressed up, while in others it is completely naked. It is a story of pain and loneliness, but it is also a story of unremitting hope. It is an intimate, authentic piece of myself. Much like my live performances, I am simultaneously excited and terrified to share it with you."
