about

My third original album, Drifting.

It took 4 years to complete and was incredibly difficult emotionally, but is my best work to date. A huge thank you to the kickstarter backers for their patience, and the guest musicians!

Another huge thanks to Travis Vengroff for constant advice, listening to demos, and the sacrificed dropbox space!

Track Name: Angels
Tired and troubled
Dark and disguised
Hand on my angel
She tells me her lies

No you don't, you don't know me

She said I'm alright
She said I'm just fine

You want it, you want it to be
I've seen you inside of my dreams
The vein of the vessel, it bleeds
The demons, they're calling for me
The angel, she's lying to me

No you don't, you don't know what I've seen

She said I'm alright
She said I'm just fine

No, you lie, you know I'm not fine

She said I'm alright
She said I'm just fine

I'll believe her this time
Track Name: Little Soul
I met you, 13 long years ago
I looked in your eyes, and knew you were mine
All those years ago, there was no way to know
That you would be with me through all this time

I can trust you, you can trust me
I won't abandon you, don't leave
Someone to have, someone to hold
My little soul

Winter came, summer passed, you were here
As long as you're with me, you have nothing to fear
Track Name: God Only Knows
I may not always love you
But long as there are stars above you
You never need to doubt it
I'll make you so sure about it

God only knows what I'd be without you

If you should ever leave me
Though life would still go on believe me
The world could show nothing to me
So what good would living do me

God only knows what I'd be without you
