What It Did to You
Smooooth, sloooow reggae featuring a dreamy brass/ebow instrumental break, "sensitive" percussion, a falsetto bridge, and a sweet guitar solo at the end. [more inside]
This was a fast and dirty demo I made up to teach my band the song. Kinda like how it came out, so I figured I'd throw it up here. Nice little garage rock tune. Nifty synths. [more inside]
The first song I ever wrote, trying to capture my feelings following the breakup of my first serious relationship. Song 7 of 8 from the recent Red On Strike studio session. [more inside]
a dramatic, verbose, ridiculous song about a breakup. it inexplicably starts with twelve seconds of silence that can be skipped. oops. [more inside]
Can't Spell Undead Without U
Breakups? Hard enough on the living, but harder for zombies. [more inside]
You're Not My Girlfriend No More
Perhaps you can guess from the title, but this is a breakup song.
For Today (with rain)
Apologies for my absence. [more inside]
When you're in a summer fling and you can't wait for fall...about being too shy/nice for your own good. Rough recording, more verses will be added [more inside]
Breathing On Another Planet
One of the first songs I ever wrote, remade in a multi-million-dollar studio by a band that broke up shortly after it was recorded. The original version is here. [more inside]
Guitar-based melancholy song with vocals. I've had this around for several years, and keep thinking I'll continue to dabble with the outro. I think it's time to just let it out. I wrote this after the breakup of a 7 year relationship. I like the lyrics, and the little solo, and many other things about it. The long fade-out ending is over-indulgent and a bit off-key, but imperfect as the song may be, it has heart.
I Overshot You (Demo)
This one is probably about reiterated obviousnesses and vain hopes regarding poorly plotted relationship trajectories, but what do I know, I just wrote and sung it. Oh, and the guitar tuning was EADGBD, capoed to the fourth fret. [more inside]
Wherein I discover writing a song about kissing off an ex is easier and more satisfying than kissing off an ex.
Seams (vocoder bringdown edition)
A recording from 2004 of a song from 1998. I really like vocoders: I think that they are very awesome. More inside!
Waitin' For You
The lyrics are pretty self-explanatory - it's a breakup psychosis song from a while back. I layered my voice and guitar with a four track, but kept things kind of sloppy.
the long lost light
A slow and sad song I wrote and recorded after a breakup/separation a few years ago. Features a falsetto chorus and acoustic guitar, including an e-bow undercurrent.
Eponymous 4 - Our Best Wasn't Enough
And now for something slightly more urban ... I was channeling ACO's "Yorokobi Saku Hana" when I wrote this one. At the time I wrote the lyrics, a lot of people I knew were going through break-ups. I'm still not a singer. Vocals are rough. Sorry.
The New One
This is my former band, Heat Lorraine. I'm lead guitar on this track. We had broken up already when we played this show. There was a lot of resentment floating around. We'd all had a few drinks before we went on, but our lead singer (and rhythm guitarist) Brian was drinking with a vengence.
