"Meditative Shoegaze-y instrumentation and layered arrangements safely engulf you and transport you into a beautiful aural solace." - Amy Steele, Entertainment Realm
Fallen Again -
The lyrics for this song came as I was feeling like a failure, which is very common. And also, a longing for some release, or maybe just relief would do.
Not Today -
I wrote this song in memory of the feelings I had when my mother passed away. So, it's a song for anyone who mourns.
To Stay -
This one is about visiting a friend, and how comforting that can be.
This is for those who struggle with mental illness, either diagnosed, or undiagnosed. I started with a quote from Albert Camus, but I now can't find it, so, here's one I like: “My soul’s a burden to me, I’ve had enough of it. I’m eager to be in that country, where the sun kills every question. I don’t belong here.”
Sure You Know -
I still mourn for my first dog, after probably ten years. Animals, especially, and young children seem innocent. How can death be explained?
King Saul -
Here's a song for those who feel they have failed, in a great or a small way. The lyrics were inspired by early gospel music. The tune came to me when I was waking up.
Dancing Time Again -
A song for you to play before the apocalypse.
I was inspired by early Appalachian folk music in writing the lyrics for this song, such as The Carter Family. The tune just came to me out of nowhere, and I developed the guitar, and other, sounds after that.
My Breath Becomes Less -
This song is for those searching for some truth in a world that seems bent on hiding, or disguising it. The lyrics came to me as a result of no small struggle. The tune came first.
Stranger to Reason -
Mysticism in rock and pop music dates back to the 1950s. I wrote this song very much influenced by The End by The Doors, but also by some contemporary Egyptian music, and other Near and Middle Eastern music. The lyrics were inspired by the poetry of Rumi, and quotes from Carl Jung.
