The songs for 'The Escape Plan' were mostly conceived and written both alongside and as a follow up ('Book II' or ’Part II’) for my 2019 album 'A Perfect Cliché'. Unsurprisingly (pandemic?) been a slow process… Originally intended to be recorded as a studio album with the full band, I've instead taken on the recording process myself, a process that has been started and aborted many times (with widely varying results...) Recently inspired to revisit the multiple attempts, I realized that the mishmash of ideas work as a pastiche or collage. Production-wise, the result is a weird, eclectic cross section of the best (or at least most interesting) of the varied approaches, ranging from excessive, densely multi-tracked psychedelia, to simple ‘boy plus guitar’ acoustic takes...

The songs and lyrics cover themes of transition, growth, escape, art, political consciousness, and spirituality. The narrative (found on the 'Lyrics' page at at brucceenloe.com), follows the story of a ‘lost song’ and a quest along an imaginary river to recover both the song and the freedom that the protagonist feels it represents. The redemption comes from an acceptance of cycles and an understanding that there is only one river and that it is the sea. Or something like that...

"And in the end, I will forgive myself, and learn to love again..."
