In Their Words: Two Different Worlds is a record I’ve been wanting to make for a long time. The recording process took nearly two years, and some of the songs are almost 10 years old. An excellent group of St. Louis musician/artists/ friends filled out my vision and often exceeded my expectations. The songs on the record deal with various themes — some are more personal than others. The overarching theme is the difference between two things: love and loss, life and death, perception and reality, success and failure, Middle America and the rest of the world. That’s where Two Different Worlds comes in, a line taken from the song ‘It Don’t Matter’ by Bob Rueter, which is the only cover on the record.” — Ryan Koenig
