The search for the perfect cover image:
People have asked me where I got the stunning landscape image that was used for my newest CD, "Only Two Things."
After scouring a bunch of stock photo and landscape photography sites, I came to what I consider to be one of the best landscape photographers of the American West, Craig Hergert of Montana Panoramic.
Capturing the emotion:
The best images provoke. They summon nostalgia, desires, cardinal longings for what once was or what could be. The perfect image can be a whisper of another world, a rumor of other times and places: A dispatch from Eden.
This particular image, "Homestead," evoked such an immediate and strong response in me that was more than thoughtful: It was visceral. My gut knew I was looking at the photo that would capture in image what I wanted to say musically.
