“The album was written over a very difficult but experientially rich time of life,” the young New Mexico-born singer songwriter tells us.

“I was grappling with loss of identity, as I left a place which is so deeply ‘home’ for me and as I found, more intertwined in so many levels of my being than I knew.
I still feel like I am recovering from the losses that ensued, and slowly finding ways to repurpose those spaces again.”
A self-written volume, A Dawn I Remember would slowly take shape over two years. The vast majority of the songs being written in New Zealand, though one was penned in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado (Slow Train Creek).

Finished off with widely acclaimed, award-winning engineer and producer Ben Edwards in the Sitting Room, the initial recordings happened in the small southern NZ town of Colac Bay with Steve Roberts and Tom Lynch.
