In the fall of 2001, I began gathering demos for what I thought was going to be three separate albums: Spring, Summer, and Winter. In January of 2002, I learned that I would only be able to make one album. I consolidated the Spring and Summer demos into the album that would become The Promise of Summer.
This collection represents a fair balance of Spring, Summer, and Winter songs. In terms of my discography, these were among the last songs to be demoed before production began on The Promise of Summer. Being so, the grouping is called Summer Demos, Vol. 1.
I hope you enjoy these recordings. Some of them are nearly identical to the versions on Summer. Some are quite different. Most ended up in the song graveyard and are resurrected for this community-only release.
