::::CAUTION MUCH TEXT BELOW:::::
For those of you who have followed me for any length of time, you know that I just like making music. I've always felt like an artist without a "sound" because of this, and I've been writing WIPs and unreleased tracks for years trying to find something broad enough yet identifiable to be me. This has proven difficult because taking all sorts of influences and combining them together is my favorite thing to do, from Jazz to Classical, Disco and Funk to Ambient, Pop to Experimental.

With this LP I feel closer than ever to achieving the strange concoction of semi-dance and electronica soundtrack of what I've wanted to sound like, and hopefully will continue improving on that with each record to come.

Thanks for listening! You can pick up (or stream!) the full release if you want to show your support. Unless you hate everything on there. Then you can leave your angry comments wherever you see fit. ♥♥♥

Track Name: Iconic
Well this change has come for a while
I didn't think you'd care
too much time sunk with the rhythm
boxed up and gasping for air

She's not the one you came with
she's not the one you want
so don't you be ashamed if
the exit sign is on

it's not so simple my dear
it's not that easy
you want this change to happen
and now you think you're done

look me in the eyes and
face me when you say
please, don't start the fire
we'll all burn anyway

You're so iconic
you've got what no one can touch
yeah, you're so iconic
cause it's your only crutch

You're so iconic
you've got what no one can touch
yeah, you're so ironic
and it's your only crutch

I met a man last week
propped up on pins and needles
I asked him to speak and
tell me just what is real

he pulled his head up from the bed,
cleared his throat and said
you'll never know just what you want
and we'll all burn down instead

whether you're dragging a grave
or pushing one in front
your pride is underground
your mind is on the hunt

he smiled and said it's all in vain
if there's one thing he knows
we'll never find just what we want
and we'll all burn anyway
Track Name: Infatuation
do you remember our better days
do you think of them often
cause I can't get you off of my mind

I've tried all the ways
I'm wasting my time
but I just keep coming back and back
cause I can't get you off of my mind

and oh, I'm a fool
love has made me blind
when I've only got to go
cause I can't get you off of my mind

and oh, I'm a tool
you can use me how you like
but now I've got to go
and I can't get you off of my mind
Track Name: Eye of the Storm
the wind is breaking early
the waters are rising too
a new storm is here
and I'll roll through it with you

the clouds are dropping down and
your fantasies are sneaking out
a new storm is here
and I'll roll through it with you

and when our ship is sinking
the crackling deck crashing down
I want you
to remember that I wanted you too

the eye is overhead us
and I've never seen you smile like this before
we'll weather this storm out
we'll weather this somehow

and I'm the same as I was
but something has changed when I hold you
we'll weather this storm out
we'll weather this somehow
