Story

This album was written while I was in the middle of a lawsuit. When I wrote Nobody's Listening, it was the fantasy ending that made me feel better and helped me sleep at night. I love to unveil the truth. When someone from the news was buzzing at our gate with questions about the lawsuit, it was really hard for me to send them away. I was reminded on a regular basis to be careful with my words and not say too much. I felt so stifled and impotent. By the time it was over, I had a newfound appreciation for the hidden message behind 'Resolved to the Mutual Satisfaction of Both Parties.' I have a lot of respect for all those women who chose to take a payout rather than have their lives (even more) destroyed by people with more power and money than themselves. I suddenly saw the ugly truth hidden in plain sight. Everywhere. Our legal system...oh, our legal system.

Nobody's Listening was recorded, mixed and mastered in Portland, Oregon by Matt Greco, owner of The Rye Room. Guest artists during this recording session were Christopher Friesen on bass and Randy Herbert on drums. Stoneface Honey artists include Dan Johnson on guitar, Kate Austin on vocals and Angie Kopshy on vocals and keyboard. 

This amazing art by Olivia Lynch is connected to an article, A Racketeering Lawsuit Brought by an Oregon Equine Lawyer Is Part of a National Strategy to Upend Legal Weed, in the Willamette Weekly. 

Lyrics

I can only watch you for so long before my heart breaks for you.

I can barely hear your voice before my heart breaks for you.

Standing in your field of lies.

Drowning in your pool of judgment. 

It almost hurts me to break the truth to you.

 

Nobody's Listening. 

To you.

Anymore.

 

You can only cry wolf for so long before the impact wears off.

And you can only weave so many tales before your credibility is lost. 

Standing in your field of lies.

Drowning in your pool of judgment. 

It almost hurts me to break the truth to you.

 

Nobody's Listening. 

To you.

Anymore.

 

Oh, you're gonna lose so many friends when they hear.

Oh, you got a lotta sleepless nights ahead of you my dear.

Cuz it's gonna hurt when you learn.

 

Nobody's Listening. 

To you.

Anymore.
