Well how about across the sun where did this name come from? Good question not sure I can exactly place its origin either. But shortly after the loss of a friend, in a helicopter crash. The song was written in a hotel in Santa Fe, New Mexico. That probably explains the first line in the song Ride Across the plains. The rest of the song just unfolded from there. When we were looking for a name for the album I searched the internet using several of the other song names. And most all of them had been used by other artists. But when I searched for Ride Across The Sun nothing came up. So through a series of text between Kristen and I and a couple other trust worthy people. It was decided to use that for the album title. The art work was also important to me. I really wanted that feeling that an orange/pastel sunset creates. There is nothing more awesome to me than sunsets and sunrises when the sky is all lit up. A true expression of mother earth, showing us a beginning and an end. This was important to me to tie all these feeling together. Sometimes with one ending another beginning arises!! Cheers and Thanks for all the support.
