All songs by Toby Kane and Brian Masek

 

At the end of 2019, with a busted left hand trying to relearn guitar and crooked fingers pushing down on synth keys for therapy, I sent a song over to Brian Masek. I asked if he wanted to help. He eventually said yes and just kept pushing me with new directions in the spirit of my ideas. Ghost and a Guess is the result of two years of collaboration, isolation, celebration and throwing ideas at the wall. Nobody loves a pandemic jam, but I sure enjoyed taking some frustration out on the songs. I hope there’s some joy in here, too. I couldn’t have had a better partner or more talented friend on this strange trip.

—Toby

Two years ago, Toby Kane asked if I’d be interested in producing a new project for him. I said no. My focus at that point was live performance. Then about a week later the pandemic hit. With live music on hold for the foreseeable future and Toby’s creative songwriting this seemed like it could be good outlet for us. I said yes. I suggested that we go all in, strive to make it the best project we’ve done, explore new ideas and accept nothing that we know is a compromise. Toby kept up his end of that bargain and gave me wide latitude in creating the musical landscape for his story. I’m grateful for that and I really hope you enjoy it.

—Brian
