about

Throughout the past few years I have collected sound samples from musicians I have met on tour, found instruments and borrowed vinyl. Songs feature sounds from the cemeteries of New Orleans to the deep woods of North Carolina. Many of the ideas for this collection were pieced together during late flights to Europe and relaxing by the pool in Central America. This record is an attempt to capture the journey.

Track Name: Datura Inoxia
Fill your tank on the go
coasting medium slow
that unmistakable glow
little time to grow
barely picture your face
a faraway place
"
"
I act for personal gain
the world is one in the same
in youth you only have time
in age our love just a crime
I look past for a sign
and I'm beginning to tell
such a beautiful hell
"
Such a beautiful hell
and I'm beginning to tell

an ocean level of deep
my soul is your soul to keep

a distant call from the dark
the beastly musical mark

and in beauty it hides
just out of reach it resides
