This is my solo music project. It resists being defined by a genre, dipping into rock, folk, and psychedelic influences.
The Story Behind "Moonwalking"
Addiction: To drugs, to patterns, to people.
I wrote the first part of this when I felt my soul dragging me away from my vices, kicking and screaming. I wrote the chorus and the rest of the song a month or two later when I was slipping back into my old patterns of addiction.
It is a source of beauty in the darkness, of release, and of comfort and camaraderie for people going through a similar struggle.
The genre is Space Folk, influences being Bon Iver, Willie Nelson, and Steinza.
I hope this song can be comforting and empowering to people who feel trapped. It is a reminder that life is cyclical and has its ups and downs, but that there’s always a light at the end of the tunnel.
The Story Behind "Blindsighted"
Liberation: from old ways of seeing, thinking, being.
I wrote this in the midst of my own journey of self-discovery, clarity, and inner-knowing (a journey I continue to be on, and will be until this incarnation dies).
It is a source of truth, clarity, and revolution within the mind and soul.
The genre is Indie Rock, influences being Peach Pit, Dominic Fike, and Cage the Elephant.
I hope this song can encourage you cut out all the noise swirling around in the world today, and focus in on what truly matters; finding that point of clarity, that North Star.
The Story Behind "roots."
Connection: To others, the environment, and your higher self.
I wrote this when I felt very ungrounded, and far away from my loved ones and my own path.
It is a source of catharsis, soothing energy, and warmth for those going through something similar.
The genre is Psychedelic RnB, influences being Pink Floyd, Frank Ocean, and Daniel Caesar.
I hope this song can provide some grounding and comfort in difficult times.
The Story Behind "Pity Party"
Motivation: to commit to your vision, show up, and get over yourself.
I wrote this when I was feeling beat down by life and needed a little motivation myself.
It is a source of fresh energy, renewed vitality, and a gentle kick in the ass to re-route you back on your path.
The genre is Indie Pop, influences being Arctic Monkeys, Sir Sly, Feng Suave, and Foster the People.
I hope this song can get you out of bed in the morning with the mindset that you can and will accomplish anything you set your mind to.
