Deerpath flows with poetic verse and colorful songs, much like the world of forest animals and ancient mysticism being depicted within the cover art. Finding correlation between the cover and lyrical content is subjective, for the listener. Adam commissioned Cary to paint something that would return storytelling and imagination to album art. They agreed on the title “Deerpath” before starting, evoking a fantasy image, this theme of wandering and seeking knowledge. They also agreed that the work should look like a Bosch tryptic and illustrations from The Wind in the Willows. All in all, it is an ode to the spirituality of Oregon’s forest and its mystical nature.
