about

In 2005 I wrote and recorded a CD every month for a year. A physical CD was sent to whoever wanted it. 10 years later I have finished recording a 12 track LP with folk collective Few Who Do. I'm planning on doing a monthly release of each track from the LP in addition to challenging myself to write at least 2 new acoustic tracks written each month.

Here are 2 new tracks I wrote in October and track 10 from the LP - Compass To The Familiar

1. Compass To The Familiar - A song of longevity,belonging and having the familiar to fall back on. Security.

2. Silent Water - Life is like taking a boat on silent water. Just keep paddling and you can pretty much glide past most hazards just look the way you're facing.

3. Row, Row, Row Your Boat - This is a classic nursery ryhme... I just added a few new verses.

Track Name: Compass To The Familiar
Take a large breathe and inhale the misty morning as you rise,
With Open eyes see the sun is shining inside your cloudy mind

Look to the sun and moon and stars for a compass of the familiar
Close your eyes, find a comfort in the familiar
Call me at any time, I’m the sound of the familiar
Close your eyes, find a compass to the familiar.

There’s a new world waiting around the corner but It’s just out of sight
There’s a new hope under every stone you will turn, all in good time

Look to the sun and moon and stars for a compass of the familiar
Close your eyes, find a comfort in the familiar
Call me at any time, I’m the sound of the familiar
Close your eyes, find a compass to the familiar.
Track Name: Silent Waters
Pulling away out of the line of sight of you
Selling the sun to be apart from what they already knew
Maybe it’s crashed, maybe a fallen star
If you celebrate early you can slowly fall apart

Oh. look the way that you're facing
Oh. get past what you're going through

Disaster splatters over the window shield pain
Sensing departures you're fueled by a killing rage
All the ratings fall and desperate tastes arise
They’re Telling a joke about you like you’re not alive

There’s something in the water and now it’s absorbing your mind
You’re paper heart burns smolders, and your ashes turn to flight
I just split my lip, pretending you’re walter burns
You’re a deviant, low life, riding on all you deserve
Track Name: Row Row Row Your Boat
Row Row Row your boat
Gently down the stream,
Merrily merrily merrily merrily
Life is but a dream

Ride ride ride your bike,
bumping down the trail
Watch out for catepillars, flowers and snails

Drive drive drive your car
On a racing track
When you cross the finish line
Everyone will clap

Fly fly fly your plane
Zooming through the sky
If you look down at us
You’ll see us wave bye bye,

5,4,3,2,1
Blasting of to mars,
If you see an alien,
Take a photograph.

Row Row Row your boat
Gently down the stream,
Merrily merrily merrily merrily
Life is but a dream
