released January 1, 2016

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 especially each month.

Here are 2 new tracks I wrote in December and track 12 from the LP - Far Away Land

1. Far Away Land - Everyone goes through ups and downs. When you're going through the downs it's nice to know when someone is there for you.
2. Never Stop -A dreamy sort of love song.
3. Little by Little - A day in a life of a young child (based on personal experience)

Track Name: Far Away Land
Far Away Land

In a fairy tale land where spells can be chosen,
Wishes come true and no one ever grows old.
You awake from this sleep to find that you’ve been frozen,
Numb to the fight and dead to the world.

In a faraway place where streams flood like oceans,
The higher you climb the further you fall
Dreams die like stars, hear their tearful explosions
Nightmares arise to conquer all

Tell me when you're going
To this place you're going
I want to be there for you
No matter how painful
no matter how shameful
I want to face it with you

The concepts were formed and ideas were growing,
The plans they were drawn but scattered by the wind
You're hearing whispers that are starting to doubt you
You’re suffering a curse and want to evaporte.

When all's said and done
I want to be there for you
When all's said and done
I want to face it for you
Track Name: Never Stop
Never Stop

I had a dream I was waking up, I was waking up a dream
I had a dream I was waking up, I was waking up a dream
I had a dream I was waking up, I was waking up a dream
I had a dream I was waking up, I was waking up a dream

I had a dream I was waking up, I’ve been dreaming of making up,
Moving along like a juggernaut, zooming through space like an astronaut
You made me laugh, I made you cry, you made me scream, you made my die
Laughing all the way to the river bank
I Followed you down to the letter… man

Ohh, our loving will never stop, never stop, ohhh
Our loving will never stop, ohhhh will never stop.

Easy peasy, lemon squeezy, you making me feel kinda queezy.
I dotted my I’s, crossed my t’s
You crossed your eyes and gritted your teeth,
We’re bigger than the sum of 2, bigger than just me and you,
We drove towards the sun, set sail and go it on.

You say I carry a lions’ heart which can rip your entire world apart,
You pinned me down and gave me honey,
I’m breathing fast, all kinds of funny.
A pin can drop and no one hears it
A day can breaks and no-one sees it.
The spirit of a unicorn can open up any door.

Ohh, Our loving will never stop, never stop, ohhh
Our loving will never stop, ohhh, will never stop.

I had a dream I was waking up, I was waking up a dream,
I had a dream I was waking up, I was waking up a dream,
I had a dream I was waking up, I was waking up a dream,
I had a dream I was waking up, I was waking up a dream.

Ohh, Our loving will never stop, never stop, ohhh
Our loving will never stop, ohhh, will never stop.
Will Never Stop
Track Name: Little By Little
I'm getting bigger bigger, little by little,
I'm getting bigger bigger, little by little,
Bigger and Bigger, Little by little.

Who’s gonna stop me you and who’s army,
I’ve got a whole load of trouble bursting to get out of me,
It makes me shake shake shake to the music,
And I lose my self in the world around me.

Getting bigger and bigger, Little by little.

So take me places that I‘ve never been,
Tell me stories I just won't believe.

I'm getting bigger bigger, little by little,
Little by Little

I'm getting bigger bigger, little by little,
I'm getting bigger and bigger.

As I get older, I`m getting wiser,
My emotions are stronger and my hearts beating faster,
It makes me stu stu stutter when I talk about it all,
I lose myself in everything I feel.

Getting bigger and bigger, Little by little,

So take me places that I‘ve never been,
Tell me stories I just won't believe.

I'm getting bigger and bigger, little by little,
I can`t stop, I won`t stop, I`m a winner,
It`s my way or the highway.
