This album, Porcelain Hammer,
Is a journey of thought,
A questioning of beliefs,
And a changing of ideas
That ultimately leads to no resolution.
Yet there can be peace
in the acceptance of uncertainty.
released June 11, 2014
I used to think that this particular collection of songs was too introspective and that I was being too narcissistic in writing so much about myself. However, within the last year I read a magazine article about how the millennial generation is a bunch of self-centered narcissists. Now I don’t feel so bad. I’m just a voice of my generation.
Besides, in writing about that subject I know best: myself, perhaps others will find my writing relate-able. After all, people aren’t really so different from one another.
I would like to thank my wife for trouble shooting my computer frustrations and for tolerating all the messes and noise I made in our apartment during the production process of this project. Furthermore, I would like to apologize to my neighbors who shared walls with me. However, I exclude apologies to the neighbor who blasted techno music intermittently throughout the day.
All songs were written and performed by Kelly Howerton, between 2009 and 2014.
All tracks were home-recorded, May 2014.
All of the album artwork was handmade by yours truly, 2014.
