Everything I Long For 20th Anniversary re-issue and tour

February 16, 2016

Around this time 20 years ago, I released my first full length record, Everything I Long For. It was a collection of 16 songs, some 4-track recordings that had previously appeared on two versions of a cassette called “In September”, and a few new ones I recorded with my friend Joao Carvalho.

I’ve always had a bit of a complex relationship with this record, but with all of the personal baggage it comes with, I can’t deny the impact it has had on my life and the meaning it had to a certain group of people in the mid 1990’s.

For that, I’ve made the decision to briefly go back in time and celebrate the first songs I ever wrote with the release of a limited edition, double vinyl copy of Everything I Long For on April 1. The anniversary release is remastered from the original recordings and includes 5 rare demos and out-takes.

Pre-orders of the double-vinyl package, alongside other additional limited-edition merchandise recreated from the time, are now available through the Hardwood Records online shop.
