A Note From Andrew...
I began writing the songs Open Book, unintentionally, on an old, 1930’s upright piano in an early twentieth century hunting lodge overlooking the Wyoming mountains, built by the Old West pioneer, Buffalo Bill Cody. I had traveled to Wyoming to get away. To reflect in nature. To be alone with myself, and with God.
I worked out a lot of life on that old upright. And just outside of that lodge, for the first time, I learned how to commune with my Maker.
Every day I would wade into the icy Shoshone River waiting for a pulse to resume in my heart, some sign of life to confirm that the characteristics of God I had learned of through study were honestly God, in reality. Desperate to discover the truth, I decided to surrender my perpetual heartache, my sin, enter a dark night of the soul, and pray for a morning of grace.
These are the stories of a Friend I met out West. I owe Him my life.
Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death . . . Psalm 23:4
