The philosophy I pursue with Broken Light is simple. It’s the same philosophy, I think, that lead Rick Rubin to approach Johnny Cash towards the end of his career and ask, “Well, what do you want to record?”
I want to use the medium of recording to help spark the imagination of the artist and the audience. I want to find what’s special about the artist in an intimate setting and help translate that to a record. I want the artist to feel that the recording is an accurate representation of who they are in that moment.

And I want to make your best record ever.
