Track Listing 

Cluster A   
“Butterflies and Blues” - moves anxiously as vivid imagery that melds hard luck with delicate hope.   
“Prelude/Inside a Reverie” - a dreamy and devastating look back on love with its own gorgeous instrumental prelude.   
“88” - lays relatable worries bare over piano and harmonica.   

Cluster B   
“Love Is an Obstacle” - pinpoints intimacies with disarming detail.   
“(Let's Sing For) Love and Be Free” - cries out for reconciliation in the midst of a fractured world.   

Cluster C   
“All My Life” - pining for what can’t be.   
“Wait for the Judge” - a powerful, biblical statement on patience.   
“New Life” - yearning fueled by tender attention to telling detail.   

Cluster D   
“Inside a Reverie (Reprise)” - revisiting the fragility of a lost soul in love's aftermath.   
“The Sinner's Last Song” - a self-deprecating heartbreaker, anchored in tearful but sly jazz phrasing.   
“Some Final Thoughts” - a stunner with only strings, somber and majestic.
