My Early Music

Recent Work - Unabridged - Improvisions - Damned... -  The Tide Has Left - Minds Lay Dormant - Searching for Infamy



Since learning to play guitar as a freshman in high school, I have always loved writing songs. I view music as the portal for modern poetry...poetry isn't as popular as it once was, unless it is accompanied by music. So, essentially, many of these songs are my poems in musical form.  Below are the track listings for the albums, and sound clips for a select few. (Note: Some of the clips may be poor sound quality) Left click to stream, right click and "Save (Link/Target) As..." to save.

Recent Work

I haven't done much recording for a couple years now, as is evident by the dates on the albums below. However, I have started recording again, and expect to have a new album by summer 2007. Here is one of the first tracks from the album, in an incomplete form. This is just a demo version, the album will have a reworked version.

Season Change demo

I recently signed up for, where independent musicians and filmmakers, as well as more professional musicians and filmmakers can buy and sell licensing for their works without record companies being involved. I saw an opportunity for a non-alcoholic beverage commercial. I figured that for $30,000 I was stupid not to make a 30 second recording. Here are the details.

Opportunity Details

Description: * Lyrics: Friends, having a good time, enjoying the day, getting along, you & me, etc..... * Feel: current, young, upbeat, fun, joyous, bubbly * Style: indie pop and rock pop * should be uptempo * male or female vocals
Price: $30000.00
Usage: Usage: TV and Radio Advertising
Music Length: 30 Sec
License duration: A year

I ended up writing a couple verses and using the licensing company name for the chorus. Here is the extended version for your viewing pleasure. Pardon the imperfections and generic lyrics.
