about

Limitation breeds creativity. Whether you are making an album, falling in love or launching your own business, it is how you tackle the obstacles that stand between you and your goal that will define the outcome. 

The obstacles I had to overcome whilst recording this album were the instruments around me. Only having an acoustic guitar, a moog synthesizer, a piano and my voice. I wanted to create sounds that one wouldn't think possible using only those tools. I Recorded everything completely alone in my bedroom, the project was an endless learning process. From learning how to work my simple recording set up to noise complaints a plenty, it was all these obstacles that shaped and formed what is now the "For The Dreamers" EP

That being said I am extremely excited for everyone to hear what I have been stirring up while being a hermit. So, for the month of August the EP will be a pay what you think download straight from bandcamp. Download the album directly from bandcamp and there might be an extra little gift for you... Just saying, give it a shot.

Ultimately I want to thank you thank you thank you so much for taking the time to listen to my music and if you do choose to make a donation, rest assured all money will go straight into making more music!

Thanks and please enjoy the "For The Dreamers" EP.

Track Name: Scales of a Fish in the Sky
The dawn of a new era will begin
Times up, give up and start over

The dawn of a new era will begin

Well moving on is just something i'm accustomed to
It's comforting to know that I must start brand new
And after all we've been through, how typical of you
But I must thank you kindly, I must start brand new

As summer turned winter into fall
Well he learned quickly there was no difference at all

I sang and cried and drank so much and damn fast I did fall
I never stopped to notice she had never left at all

When moving on is just a thing i'm accustomed to
It's comforting to know that I must start brand new
And after all we've been through, how typical of you
But I must thank you kindly, I must start brand new
Track Name: Northeast Air
When my lips get frozen and chapped
I know where I'm going, I know I'll adapt
This Northeast air will shrivel me up
Drain my waning memory of a time when I called this home

I fancy that I'll see you there
Friends from long ago stay true, true

Oh I will come home tonight to find the old feels new
and you, I know you feel it too but our tongues we will bite

When my lips get frozen and chapped
I know where I'm going, I know I'll adapt
This Northeast air will shrivel me up
Drain my waning memory of a time when I called this home

I fancy that I'll see you there
Friends from long ago stay true, true

Oh I will come home tonight to find the old feels new
and you, I know you feel it too but our tongues we will bite

I should've seen it coming, it's not like we didn't want it all
I should've seen it coming, yeah we wanted all, all

Oh I will come home tonight to find the old feels new
and you, I know you feel it too but our tongues we will bite
Track Name: Ticking of Your Bicycle
Come again, I could not hear you through your beautiful eyes
Those beautiful eyes
Not again, every waking moment you are in my mind, your in my mind

So go, go, go, go, go and take my time, please take my time
And I will know, know, know, know, know that you'll be mine
Will you be mine?

I want to be so nervous that you can hear our hearts beat
Just as loud as we breathe

Oh, I walk besides the ticking of your bicycle
And I will know, know, know, know, know that you'll be mine
Will you be mine?

Here again, confined to my apartment I go out of my mind
I'm out of my mind

For you, again and again I repeat the same lines
Hoping the truth you will find

So go, go, go, go, go and take my time, just taking my time
And I will know, know, know, know, know that you'll be mine
Will you be mine?

I want to be so nervous that you can hear our hearts beat
Just as loud as we breathe

Oh, I walk besides the ticking of your bicycle
And I will know, know, know, know, know that you'll be mine
Will you be mine?

So come and get it, say you will be mine

Oh, I walk besides the ticking of your bicycle
And I will know, know, know, know, know that you'll be mine
Will you be mine?
Track Name: You're Lucky
I am trembling like a match that you ignite
Please don't put me out so we can all burn down

Kick it up tonight and let your flame ignite
Flicker and be wild and let's all burn it down

Close your eyes, savor the moment 'cause you'll realize
You're lucky

Draw outside the lines and scream for better times
You kids find the time or you'll be left behind

All the things we do for a girl that's overdue
And so I crash right into you
Maybe some other day

Close your eyes, savor the moment 'cause you'll realize
You're lucky

Two lovers pass, are you afraid to ask?
I think you are.
Track Name: Times Are So Hard For The Dreamers
I can realize when I've been wrong but this is news to me
It's the same each time we meet, disappointed undoubtedly

She wilts like a flower in a light with no sun
Times are so hard for the dreamers

Failure is a human destiny, it teaches life is but a draft
I can't seem to find a friend, I do not disappoint in the end

She wilts like a flower in a light with no sun
Times are so hard for the dreamers

I have moved
Moved on from me

She wilts like a flower in a light with no sun
Times are so hard for the dreamers
Track Name: For The Sake of Listening
Bring me back to nothing age
Hold my hands conduct an orchestra
Take me back to that old place
Shake my hands they are now your baton

I want to live like that again
To the means there were no
End this lull I'm in

For the sake of listening

Now my age says everything
My innocence no longer smiles
Now that I hear I've lost the meaning
Of listening and learning
I hear nothing without a compromise

I want to live like that again
To the means there were no
End this lull I'm in

For the sake of listening
For the sake of listening please

Oh, what is left to do?
Doubting everything I thought was true

I want to live like that again
To the means there were no
End this lull I'm in

For the sake of listening
For the sake of listening
For the sake of listening
