My Music

Thanks for your interest in my music. Although making music isn’t a full-time endeavor for me, just like you, I put my blood, sweat, and tears into the tracks I create. You’ll find my catalog below.

All of the following links lead to iTunes, but you can find my music on all popular platforms.

Singles

Waves (2017) – I was watching the Amy Winehouse documentary simply titled Amy, and I had a crazy thought. What would happen if I combined jazz with synthwave. Would it work? That’s how “Waves” came about. The finished product sounds a bit like the music you’d hear in Sonic 2.

Hope (2016) – “Hope” started out as a simple acoustic song. But I knew that it would lend itself well to an electronic dance music (or EDM) style engagement. So, that’s what I did with it. For something I put together in a hurry, I felt it turned out well. I am thinking about recording different versions of it though.

Don’t Wait Too Long (2016) – This is a song that had been sitting in my archives for a few years. I resurfaced it in 2016, because I felt ready to take it to the next level. It’s a simple song about faith. Many people tell you to give up, but if you’re willing to hang in there and believe, and act, you’ll see good things happen. That’s what it’s about.

City Lights (2016) – My first attempt at a synthwave/retrowave style track. I’m happy with the results, and a lot of people seem to like it too. I love that this type of music is popular right now. 80s had a lot to offer in terms of great music. Sure, there was some junk, just like in any other era, but I feel like it was a better decade overall.

Fragments (2016) – This is the first guitar instrumental I’ve ever released. As I was looking to get back into recording and releasing music in 2016, it occurred to me that I had this great beat I hadn’t done anything yet. It was simply called “Lounge.” I took it, made some edits, laid some guitar and bass over it, and got “Fragments.” People who know me say it sounds like me, whatever that means.

Albums

Shipwrecked… My Sentiments (2006) – This is my first solo album from 2006. It’s rough around the edges, but it’s a project I’m glad I completed. I was writing some odd music at the time. I wanted my music to be different from what was out there. I was so tired of the top 40 hits. So, Shipwrecked… was an experiment, and a fun one at that. Thanks to everyone who was a part of this project.
