recorded October '14- June '15 in Nashville TN
This album is centered around three characters (three movements) that all broadcast into The Channel- which basically is thought, and making thoughts reality.
Like creating something, saying something, using your brain. etc. I call it "the channel" because sometimes our thoughts seem as if they are tuned to their own channel, like a radio; also because, you know-general mysticism.
Now "The Channel" (the proper noun) is the total range of all the individual channels, you could say its similar to the collective unconscious, but here it's also a place where souls live.
There's Thomas, called the visitor-and he sort of represents friendships or memory Or whatever; but he's like the Keanu Reeves for this story...
He is introduced by Miss Tiger who finds him through his channeling feline (Furthamore- St.Thomas). She teaches him lessons on how to broadcast into and out from The Channel which he eventually does (Freaks-Channel).
Miss Tiger is on the cover, she looks great.
She's a witch's ghost condemned to bring people into The Channel. Joining up with Thomas will bring her and Thomas' thoughts into reality and Thomas can speak from The Channel (so everyone can hear it). Though Thomas is unsure his own thoughts are worth others hearing and retreats despite now inhabiting The Channel, which he discovers he cannot escape (Hermit).
So there's also Mister Big Biter who is Thomas' cat, whom he has this sort of covenant with (Our Wheel, No Bothers): to watch each other's backs-which is what Thomas chooses to begin his broadcast with...
