You’ll Never Be Well No More
You’ll Never Be Well No More is about change mostly. In 2011, I moved to Chattanooga, TN with my then girlfriend, now wife. We left most things and people we knew for a new beginning. It was hard. Work was awful. A month after moving, we found out she was pregnant. We only spent a year there but in that time we lived through numerous tornado outbreaks, saw real snow for the first time, lived next door to a meth lab, and had our daughter. Everything changed fast. This body of work was a way to process everything around me, and to show my daughter about the time she was born.
