about

- My second solo acoustic album. It incorporates some more songs as well as more drums & percussion. Also an acapella track. Recorded in my second dorm room, after my NYC gang-member roommate threw all my stuff in the hallway for everyone to take what they pleased while I was in a 4-hour rehearsal!

-Primary Guitar: Custom jumbo acoustic guitar I built myself. It has a Northern CA Redwood top from 1970s, aged beautifully with a rich warm tone. Birch 3-piece back and sides, mahogony neck, rosewood fretboard. My pride and joy (currently on hiatus!).

-Secondary Guitar: 1946 Kay acoustic guitar my grandfather left me. It was in pretty rough shape, but with the knowledge gained from building my own, I was able to restore it to playing functionality. A thinner tone with f-holes rather than a centered soundhole, this relic has a gigantic neck and body, and somehow generates its own unique sustain+reverb. My grandfather got it in Germany while occupying after WWII. She turned 71 this year, plays like a dream (once you get used to the big honkin' neck!). My grandfather would have been 89. R.I.P.

Track Name: And Friends
...and it goes to show
all I know is how to heal
but that'll come and go.
Turn to a friend
ask what they'd feel
if you were to die
and disappear.

I know there's more to life than this.
But I'll be ok when the light shines beyond this.

Lull with fate
and you will hear the mother cry
"Is my baby here?!"
Steal you away
with a love of what is real.
Oh, you weren't built to die!

I know there's more to life than this.
And I'll be okay when the light shines beyond this.

Heal with love
and you will die another man,
then you will see.
Track Name: The Passing of Ramona Meeks
While we drink this dirty water,
please tell us there's clean air?
This night's become too hard to swallow.
Still...we follow them there?
The trees are turning green again,
and it's a wonder we have time.
Ashes floating in the air,
leaving a speckled, moonlit sky...

And it's time!

Woah!
We've all come to recognize
this life...as we say goodbye!

The harshest forms of tenderness,
with multitudes of your distress come forward.
We stand alone in eagerness,
until we walk on through that door.
Pack your bags and run away!
It's now too late to stay anymore!
And in the cabin of that train won't you
tell us the air is clean once more...

'Cause it's time!

Woah!
We've all come to recognize
This life...as we say goodbye!
Woah!
We'll come back again sometime
With new light...that we can shine!



*EVERYBODY!*
Woah!
We've all come to recognize
This life, as we say goodbye again!
Woah!
We'll come back again sometime
With new Light...that we can shine!
Track Name: Gang Of Thieves
Well I've been stuck here
in this god-awful house!
Wonderin' "when's the next time
you'll make yourself seen?"
And I know your shield
is very firmly placed
But I won't - no I won't
stop tryin'!

Have you heard them?
With both ears?
Shotgun shells flyin' all around the air!

Hey there! Don't you know?
You're just a little girl
who's gotten wrapped up
in this Gang Of Thieves!
So darling, let me help you.
I concede. You've trapped-
Oh yes! You trapped!
Oh wait...You killed me.

Have you heard them?
With both ears?
Shotgun shells flyin' all around the air!
Track Name: The Execution Of Bobby James (ft. Jake Bucher)
My name is Bobby James, and I broke into jail. We had some smokes. We had some beers. Then I went to the guards and I stole away the key. My name is Bobby James, and I've been here for years!

My name is Bobby James. Out here, the sun burns like a liar. His name was Johnny Lang, and his gaze burned like a fire. Now we're runnin' from the city, and no city is the same. My name is Bobby James, and I'm starting to get tired.

"Take it away, JB!"

My name is Bobby James I see those gallows swayin' in the breeze! Y'all know my buddy Johnny Lang? He's now prayin' on his knees! If the high noon was a song, well all our singin's gone

Tonight, Bobby James is gonna take his leave.
Track Name: Two.
It's your turn two...








Boss.
Track Name: Peas & Carrots
Tell me your troubles, and maybe we'll go down together.
I'll sing you a song of what we didn't let go wrong...
But wait! Are you listening? Can you hear what we have ben doing?
We're singin' it back, away from the song the story goes - sayin' it back, away from the song the story blows, ah-ah-ah-ah-ahh

Seeing you stare in that coffee cup leads me to believe you're a little bit uncertain.
But oh, how we've changed this, oh, how we've made this! I think I kind of like it here now...
But wait! Are you looking? Can you see what we've done this time?



The Ocean so far away
The city lights behind
You hold my hand as we wait for
These long winter nights in this
Cold little town...

Warm the way with the color that carries us home!

The Ocean so far away,
The city lights behind.
You hold my hand as we wait for
These long winter nights in this
Cold little town...
Track Name: Oceanic Mysteries
I've packed my bag for this trip.
It has all I need -
but somehow it feels empty.
And I hope that they don't send me home.
The sand awaits my footsteps.
Water glowing in the sunlight...
and I stare into the distance
of The Ocean.


Come now with me
Don't you wanna see this?
Even if your time does not allow
This euphoric event could pass
Into our lives...if we go -

Now!
Track Name: An Orchestrated Melody
I've heard that you were
sooo ready to move on.
And I found it would've happened
anyway.
I heard a lie with
pearly white teeth,
that sang "So long!"

I've held hands with
plenty different hopes.
And I've counted down
'til they failed.
So please don't take this
last time away
When you say "So long!"

But I won't ever need anything but you.
So please...come through
Track Name: Toris Okotie
In storm and rain we watched the days go by
Only five months old when momma said goodbye
In rain and cold I hear him cry so loud
A song you sang, he'd never seemed as proud

But were you needed tonight?
You needed to run.
But were you needed tonight?
He holds his head up high...
He needs to cry!

The years pass by without a single sign
The window shows he never left your side
Oh where had you gone?
And Why did you leave us alone?
Where had you gone?
To the other side?
I need to find!

I will find a way to take you home again!
I will find a way to make you more...
I will find a way to take you home again!
I will find a way to make you more than you are...

Why did you leave us alone?
Where had you gone?
To the other side?
I need to find!

Here we are tonight

I will find a way to take you home again!
I will find a way to make you more...
I will find a way to take you home again!
I will find a way to make you more.
Track Name: Prayer
Call me a name
Let it stay dry out in the rain
We walk the sidewalk and we're hand in hand
Call me a friend
Let's see how far we can bend
When our hopes and dreams become reality
And

We know exactly what we need to to
To turn into what we wanted to
And we go with what we need to be
Cause we hope it adds to the certainty
So
Please just pray with me
And
Please just lay with me

For now.
Track Name: Three.
When I try to think of other things
(they make it seem like it will take a light year for this closing!)
A songbird lies into my open eyes
and asked me do I? Oh do I?
I need an answer like a flower does the sun
to bloom into a bright other one

And it seems as I,
who know nothing,
couldn't ever worry!

History repeats itself!
A wonder of a thing.
With this new chance I find what I bring.
It doesn't even ask any questions!
"What's so good about questions?"
(it shows up-like an old rose up-withered and hiding with elaboration-take what ya can-if you dare provoke the-masses with deafening oscillations!)

And it seems as I,
who know nothing,
couldn't ever worry!

Couldn't ever...
