Aleutian Letter

Home demo for a future studio recording. A contemplative tune about a man working on the DEW Line in 1950s Canada, writing a letter home to his estranged wife. Lyrics below the fold. (Pardon the tentative lead vox, as this one's a tiny bit above my normal range and it's brand-new.) [more inside]

Beautiful Moment

Love generates love generates love. Beautiful Moment seems to capture an element worthy of such progeneration. Harmony, peace, smooth dreaming and a swirl of energy-filled ethereal waves. [more inside]

Titry

"Titry" translates into English as "credits", as in for a film. It was inspired by the idea that this would make a great intro or outro song for the listing of film credits, whether or not we actually decided to pitch the song for that purpose. Maybe we will one day :)

Upsurd

A little Mezzanine-era Massive Attack and Stereo MCs blend with something more ethereal - throw in both male and female vocals… and then some more depth that is indescribable in words. So says me. :) Titled "Upsurd" because a little absurdity can also have an upwards drive to it. Right?

Rotation

For some of the best things in life, intensity builds as anticipation kicks in. That is what this Ummagma track is for me - with layer on layer, building a sort of icicle/sand castle that never melts or washes away. It just builds and then takes flight. I hope you will feel the same. Of course, there is that The Smiths thing happening - happy music, depressing lyrics. Rightly so. Spot on - have a read. [more inside]

Risky

It's funny how sometimes it takes all but a few minutes to write a song, while the development of another song can really stretch out. This was one of those stretches - "Risky" was a song that was written "in chunks" - the basic instrumental bit was written in Kyiv, Ukraine before a big move to western Ukraine and then to Canada, where the rest was written & recorded before finally being dragged back to Ukraine, where it was properly mixed and mastered. The time span from start to finish: 5 years. All that moving around was us, by the way, not just the tracks bouncing around in cyber space. Thus is the history of this track. I'm posting the lyrics too if anyone wants to have a go at them or "sing along" …. yeah, right… any feedback is welcome. Peace. [more inside]

The Pianimal: Episode 1 - Tom Waits Covers

Recorded live in my living room on Monday night, the debut episode of this four-song, one-take podcast is my way of making sure I DO something with the piano in the corner. Each song fits a certain theme (this episode, it's Tom Waits covers), and there are no re-takes or edits allowed. It's the Pianimal -- and it's ALIVE! [more inside]

Can of Corn

This is one of the tracks on my soon to be released CD This Pound of Flesh emcee Will E P that people seems to get right away, although there is no way to explain it.

Giant Flag

A demo from about six years ago. In Canada, the norm is that we don't tend toward the big rah-rah kind of Patriotism that our neighbours to the south are prone to. Ours is a polite, reserved, (Canadian), skeptical patriotism. There's an F-word in this one, if that sort of thing worries you.

Open Letter to God

We used all of our money to rent some studio time back in 1999 and didn't have any left over to do anything with the recordings. We also seemed to end up writing power-ballads...
