The story of who I am is at times humorous and at others dark and despairing. I’ve seen some great parts of life, and I’ve also seen the parts that nightmares are made of.
The Jarrett Lobley project is about bringing these experiences to the foreground in hopes that others can find some meaning in them, to feel understood, and know that we are not alone. But even more than that, The Jarrett Lobley project is about exposing the noise. Noise in society, noise in our heads. Writing music for me is a way to get the noise out. Sometimes, to make it mean something, but often times, just to get it out for the sake of getting it out, like spring cleaning for my mind. It resets my system.
This album is a compilation of these observations and experiences, Good & not so Good. It includes the most common thoughts I’ve heard from my friends and family, off news broadcasts, the words of various politicians, and many other's who have shared their stories with all of us.
It is written through my lens: it reflects my own understanding of the world. It tells tales of my personal and professional trials and tribulations, of finding my way through life while staying true to my integrity and values. Really, this album is about the common human experience. It is my hope that this thought can continue to bring people together, collectively, so we can feel like we are a part of something that matters, something bigger. We have all the wheels as well the horse power needed, now we just have to continue to put all the pieces together.
Everything has its place and everything in its place
