American Patriot EP

Following "Us", I wanted to explore writing song-stories, and did begin work on some initial ideas. Then, I was sidetracked by a burst of inspiration to write and record the "American Patriot" EP. These songs were written and recorded within a 3 day period. Basic folk song styles and arrangements to let the message come […]

Don't Say You're Sorry

Handwriting

There's something about putting pen to paper. For the last few years, I've been writing lyrics in google docs. There's some solid advantages to this. For one, I can read what I've written, as my handwriting is somewhat illegible, especially in a creative frenzy. Fast, easy and clean editing is also a big plus. And, […]
