about

Rails to Trails was recorded in May 2009 at Zeke Studios in Madison, WI. Shortly after recording the audio, Andy moved to Houston, TX to join Teach For America. The audio files were rediscovered 10 years later, mixed, and finally released in May 2019.

The album explores the themes of anticipation, uncertainty, possibility, trust, fear, and excitement that accompanied this career change & relocation across the country.

Track Name: No Better Time To Go
One thing I take for granted
Though there are more
Thousands more
Is that the whole wide world is out there
To explore
To explore

These eyes aren't made of leather
And these hands aren't made of wood
I'm pretty sure these feet aren't made of stone
And when we see these hearts of ours
Aren't made for staying put
There's no better time to go

One thing I take for granted
Every day
Every day
Is that I have the choice to stay here
Or go
And it's mine to make

These eyes aren't made of leather
And these hands aren't made of wood
I'm pretty sure these feet aren't made of stone
And when we see these hearts of ours
Aren't made for staying put
There's no better time to go

One thing I take for granted
Is being alive
Being alive

There's no better time to go
There's no better time to go
There's no better time to go
Than now

These eyes aren't made of leather
And these hands aren't made of wood
I'm pretty sure these feet aren't made of stone
And when we see these hearts of ours
Aren't made for staying put
There's no better time to go
Track Name: Radio Flyer
I'm letting go
Radio Flyer
Life's a blur
Of red and brown
You're in control
Radio Flyer
So find a hill
We're going down

It's somehow comforting
When flying through the air
To know the crash will come
But not know when or where
So watch the trees fly by
Feel the ground approach
Live with open eyes
Let the distance close

I'm letting go
Radio Flyer
Life's a blur
Of red and brown
You're in control
Radio Flyer
So find a hill
We're going down

We always hold so tight
To the world we know
Maybe we'll get it right
If we let it go
We always hold so tight
To the world we know
Maybe we'll get it right
If we let it go

Radio Flyer
Life's a blur
Of red and brown
You're in control
Radio Flyer
So find a hill
We're going down

Find a hill
We're going down
Track Name: Now That You're Here
You don't see anyone you recognize
You don't see anything that feels like home
No, you're on your own
And now the doubt sets in
I thought you understood which way to go
Are you only moving sideways?
Oh, God only knows.

Don't be frightened by the mystery.

Now that you're here
Did reality play out the way you thought it would be?
Now that you're here
Did the image you built up suddenly disappear?

You live a way you never lived before
You feel courageous but you feel exposed
Oh, you're on your own
And every momentary victory
Is followed closely by a dark defeat
Do you trust that you'll be rising
Every time you fall down?

Don't be frightened by the rise and fall.

Now that you're here
Did reality play out the way you thought it would be?
Now that you're here
Did the image you built up suddenly disappear?

Now that you're here (Let go)
Now that you're here (Let go)
Now that you're here (Let go)
There's no courage without fear (Let go)

Now that you're here
Did reality play out the way you thought it would be?
Now that you're here
Did the image you built up suddenly disappear?

There's no courage without fear.
