“The song “Tobi” is an audible painting of what I saw while looking out of my living room window for twenty-four months. Tobi was a neighbor whom I observed. I saw her settle a divorce, lose a job, be broken by child custody on-goings and watched her health decline. I also witnessed her drink Coors Light cans by the case while floating on a popsicle-shaped device in the pool days on end; she was the only person in my community who I discussed the unfortunate suicide of our young neighbor with, which inspired the song and title of the album ‘Son on the Floor.’ Tobi is a reminder that I indeed, do not want to be alone. I suppose, never.”
