LETTERS TO THE MOON began on a car ride back to Columbus from Athens, Ohio (I think) when Ryan and I made a verbal agreement to sing his songs together as a duo. It must have been 2005 or so. We recorded two acoustic albums. One in 2006, one in 2009. We played lots of shows in lots of states, just the two of us.
Sometime thereafter, we decided to ditch the folk punk scene for American Rock and Roll. New moniker: LETTERS. We say "fuck!"
Add bass: Richard!
Add drums: Starman!
It was a short but very sweet-lived project; a true warm memory during the weirdest time of my life.
Shortly after recording this album, I moved out of Ohio.
We all got busy.
We all got a little weirder.
LETTERS has been unfinished business for 4 years. It waved at me from afar, and it lingered on my mind for four long years. Yet still, I couldn't muster the courage to finish it. I couldn't release it out into the world with a half-ass heart.
Now it's 2014, Ryan turns 30 years old today, and I'm ready with full heart to share this piece of work that we spent so much of our mid-twenties working on. Nearly a decade in the making. Fuck.
Happy Birthday, RJ.
