About the Album

“Traveler” is a through-composed singer-songwriter-jazz song that describes the relationship dynamics between two creative people and what happens when one person’s career takes off while the other person’s seems to stagger along in the shadows. This scenario existed in art (Frida Kahlo & Diego Rivera), literature (Sylvia Plath & Ted Hughes), musical theatre (Jason Robert Brown's "The Last Five Years"), and "journalism" (Veronica Corningstone & Ron Burgundy from the film "Anchorman").
