A collection of projects and B-sides, completed as well as unfinished, that I wrote, recorded, and mixed in 2015. Some recorded in-studio, most recorded in my home in Seattle. This coming year will be a development year spent focusing on creating a specific live show with a lineup of multiple musicians, as opposed to one guy in a house. I worked heavily on writing music in 2015 and felt some of these works deserved a listen or two, as opposed to being thrown on a hard drive while bandmates and I worked on playing live. Playing with other people has forced a slight change in styles, so out of respect for the unique creativity of the musicians in the band, these songs will likely not make it onto a setlist.

Most of these songs are small, short feelings in pop and psychedelia. Most lack excessive lyrics as lately I've preferred to let instruments do the speaking....or I don't like to sing much.

I hope you dig em' , I definitely enjoyed making em'

Track Name: I don't mind
from my point of view
Is feeling
every stone that she threw

how could I
have been so long
why do I
refuse to grow
Track Name: feelings
are you here
with anyone else

do you wanna fall in and out of love
so you dont waste your time
with me
Track Name: warm
after all the noise
is it all undone
a picture of tomorrow
without me
in it

stall in decent times
at least in our minds
cant forget the past
of the future's unkind

why are you so warm
to me
why are you so warm
to me

dont you wanna ride with me
ill take you places you cant see
dont you wanna ride
with me/to me
Track Name: lavender stones
thinking of turning over new leaves
a new girl
a new world
another year
do you know what that did to me
I am not who you used to be

come around
if you wanna feel untethered
its always nice weather
in the summer here
come with me
to a realm where no ones watching
the only people judging
are those who judge themselves
