New single "Trusting The Universe" just dropped!

The concept behind this track is more of an aspirational idea v.s. a concrete statement. I was feeling like I needed to give my self a pep talk when I wrote this and remind the people around me that it's going to be okay no matter what ugly turns our world takes...Just keep doing dope shit.

One of my favorite things about this track was collaborating with my roommate at the time, Charlie Rauh. He's an awesome dude and extremely talented guitar player. We've now made a handful of really dope beats together but this was the first one. We just started messing around, sampling his guitar through some effects on an Organelle routed into Ableton Live and in a matter of minutes we had a foundation to build on. Essentially the first verse is what he and I made together and then from there I built the hook, verse 2 and the rest of the track from recycled elements of what we initially laid down so it evolves throughout.

You can directly support my efforts by purchasing the single from my bandcamp page (THANK YOU!!). The single will also be available on Spotify, Apple Music, Soundcloud, Google Play, and wherever else you can stream, digest music in 2019.

New Video "Breaking Up With Death" !!!

Dear fellow weirdos... I've been working on a new record and its almost finished....I couldn't wait any longer to share something new with you.....I wrote this song in response to a recent period in my life filled with some heavy losses. I was trying to find a light hearted way to come to terms with death being an unavoidable part of the human experience. The idea of attempting to break up with death is funny to me because it's impossible. No matter what we can't avoid our life long connection to it. Acceptance is our only choice.
