Though he was raised on a healthy diet of blues, bluegrass, ragtime, Western swing and old-time country - and though he has consistently demonstrated a decided affinity for pre-1950s menswear - the Illinois native is by no means a throwback or a museum piece. Timelessness, and refined good taste, is LaFarge's raison d'etre, and his influences are as multi-hued and wide-ranging as the rhythms that buoy his starkly poetic songs - rhythms that are steeped in the very essence of jazz.

Stuck in East Austin with nowhere to go in March of 2020, LaFarge did what he does best: he got to work. He used the sudden change in plans to his advantage, having perhaps his greatest period of personal growth in the midst of the crippling pandemic.

LaFarge offered, this "latest album is a result of my 2020 experience. Before the pandemic, I was in a dark place but the pandemic actually created the much needed space for me to reflect. Turns out that being completely sedentary for once was a good thing. I found peace in the stillness. I was able to recalibrate what it is I do and why I'm doing it. Who I'm to do it with and most importantly, who I'm doing it for."
