Low lighting and a microphone brings back memories of my 16 year old self tracking my first songs in my basement. In some ways so much has changed, but it still feels the same. I’ve spent almost half my life doing this but the process hasn’t really changed. Memories mixed with melodies. 

I write & rewrite / play & replay / sing & resing

They say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again with the same result. Sometimes you feel like you’re on the verge of that while recording records, until you realize that the outcome is always different. This is my life.
