“Build Your Castle Inside of a Mountain,” is, essentially, intended to be an emotional rollercoaster of an album through the form of an analysis of identity-crisis/self-exploration. The phrase itself has been kicking around my head for many years and is meant to convey a sense of solitary artistic expression. Living in the prairies of Saskatchewan, solitude and isolation become part of one’s being – which is something that I wanted to try to explore and convey artistically throughout the album (this theme is also illustrated in the artwork chosen for the singles and the album’s cover art). Universally, regardless of an individual’s location, the human experience brings ecstatic highs and crushing lows, and sometimes you’re just existing in-between. Each individual song on the record is intended to elicit a visceral emotional response somewhere on that spectrum.
