“The house we were living in when I wrote/recorded BATS is right near Downey Park. It’s a peaceful, wide open park with a mangrove-lined creek on its border that’s home to a colony of thousands of bats. Most evenings we’d take our dogs Missy and Evie down to the park and watch the bats wake up and fill the sky as the sun would set. It was a truly beautiful thing to experience and looking back, those walks down at the park feel like a calming constant in a period of significant change and personal development. That has really stayed with me and has inspired this album both musically and visually.” — Cub Sport
