On 'Come Swiftly, Dear Sunrise,' the sunrise functions as a metaphor for hope, for the final revealing of the kingdom of God that will put an end to the injustice and suffering with which the earth is presently afflicted. The first song, "Hope," was written as a defiant declaration of the reality of hope in the face of the Japan earthquake, tsunami, and Fukushima nuclear catastrophe; several of the other songs wrestle with suffering, injustice, and the crises of identity with which postmodern persons are faced. And there is, of course, some more lighthearted fare to be had; 'Haven't Traveled Much,' for example, is a paean to that experience of falling senselessly and hopelessly for someone after having known them for all of five minutes.

'Come Swiftly, Dear Sunrise' was independently recorded, mixed and finalized in the first apartment Rory ever rented - specifically, in a small studio that may or may not have resembled a closet. It was Rory's first solo album apart from songwriting with and for Rory Tyer Band. Digital download includes two-panel disc jacket featuring 35mm photography by Rory and graphic design work by Josh Abe of joshabe.com.
