Produced by: Emily Richards

I was feeling like the Hanged Man when writing Open. Unplugging from what I thought was real and important felt like, well, hanging upside down. Through "inversion" I've found new parameters of grief and joy. "Swing on the Spiral" is a bow to Tool for their brilliant lyric.

Open written and recorded by Emily Richards. Vocals and piano by Emily Richards. Cello by Wolf Sebastian. Mastered by Brad Stanfield.
