My journey of writing pop punk songs from thirty years ago continues apace. This one started as a TikTok and then I banged out this demo in my living room today. I'm trying to get better at writing choruses and actually using my voice.
Listening to some old songs of mine, I came upon this one from 2004. It's a rather sweet, romantic little thing written about a depressing period in my relationship at the time. [more inside]
A bit of mellow but bight piano-based pop in 6/8, ostensibly about getting out of your head and into your life. [more inside]
Another acoustic guitar thing. [more inside]
A quick semi-impromptu-one-take-in-my-pajamas recording of a sad little Wilco/Elliot Smith-ish song that's been buzzing around my head. Using a crappy MXL mic which I really don't like, but was the closest to hand. [more inside]
So a good long while back I posted an early demo version of this song. This, right here, is the final finished product that is on the EP. [more inside]
A song written for a friend going through a bad break-up.
I've posted this song and then it's evolved version - now here it is in its FINAL (almost) entirety. [more inside]
I pushed the vocal track a couple of dB on this track I posted yesterday as several people suggested. See what you think. [more inside]
My acoustic cover of the Mefi favourite by Ke$ha.
Another bedroom-recorded song. [more inside]
My break-up song, written a number of years ago. [more inside]
I wrote and recorded this song in 1992 in Walnut Creek, California near San Francisco. I remember I was preparing to climb Mt. Whitney. I was pretty prolific in my songwriting then. It was about my first girlfriend, and how we pretty much took our time, and spent many years together during our youth in a healthy relationship. I think it's a pretty good example of a formula pop/love song. I hope you like it! [more inside]
Another lo-fi acoustic tune about the end of the world. Not too cheerful stuff. [more inside]
The lyrical counterpoint to "My Cirripedian Friends". [more inside]
This is a song about drowning at sea, denial and adventure. [more inside]
Crappy guitar/voice demo of a break-up song. The lyrics are a little emo, but what are ya gonna do?
My first offering, home recording, zero budget. Hope you like it. Acoustic guitar singer / songwriter style, hopefully sounds light and clean.
