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 2 new acoustic tracks written each month.

Here are the 2 tracks I wrote in May and track 5 from the LP - River Runs Wild

1. River Runs Wild -We all have choice no matter who we ares but at the end of the day we have to give up a part of ourselves to others to really reap the benefits.

2. It's a Zoo- I've started compiling songs for a kids album. Kids albums always have songs about animals right? This will eventually also have kids making animal noises on it. Go to www.facebook.com/dadandkidmusic for more info on that!

3. Dreamstate - Once a dreamer always a dreamer. You can be put down, you can believe that luck is never on your side. At the end of the day it's better to float around in a dreamstate than to be beat down about life

Track Name: River Runs Wild
There's nothing to prove said the optimist to the pessimist
A river runs towards the sea Loving every minute of it
The idyllic river runs towards the sea... yeah... where it loses part of itself.

The rivers long as the river is wide
I'm gonna try crossing to the other side (Crossing to the other side)
It all looks better in a different light
I promise you it'll work out right (I Promise it will work out right)
Just cause the river runs wild it don't mean that we should tame it.
Just cause the river runs wild it don't mean that we should tame it.

The city's as big as the city is small
Watch the buildings crumble and fall (Watch them crumble and fall)
Did you hear the final curtain call
I'm openin' it up to the floor (openin it up to you' all)
Just cause the road it straight it don't mean we have to take it
Just cause the road is straight it don't mean we have to take it

Getting Exhausted in the middle of a fight
see the fear and hunger in your eyes (Fear and hunger in your eyes)
Watching the carefree sentiments rise
I've got nothing to prove inside (Nothing to prove inside)
Just cause it's something you like it don’t mean we all have to taste it
Just cause it's something you like it don’t mean we have to taste it

There's nothing to prove said the optimist to the pessimist
A river runs towards the sea Loving every minute of it
The idyllic river runs towards the sea... yeah... where it loses part of itself.
Track Name: It's a Zoo
Even bears get scared sometimes, I think we all get scared sometimes
Even Butterflies cry sometimes, we've all got to cry sometimes
Even lions have to share sometimes, we all have to share sometimes
Even whales tell tales sometimes, we all tell tales sometimes

Are we visiting the zoo or are we living in a zoo?
we're all animals too, yeah we're all animals too.
Are we visiting the zoo or are we living in a zoo?
we're all animals too, yeah we're all animals too.

Even snakes make mistakes sometimes, we all make mistakes sometimes
Even monkeys get grumpy sometimes, we all get grumpy sometimes
Even giraffes take baths sometimes, we all need a bath sometimes
Even bees hurt their knees sometimes, we all hurt our knees sometimes.

Are we visiting the zoo or are we living in a zoo?
we're all animals to, yeah we're all animals too.
Are we visiting the zoo or are we living in a zoo?
we're all animals too, yeah we're all animals too.
Track Name: Dreamstate
Picking the pocket of a vending machine
It sold me a dream that I couldn’t believe
A lemon squeezed into my blind eye
Sweet in love, but sour deep inside

It's the dreamstate
It's the dreamstate
It's the dreamstate
It's the dreamstate

Have you heard the back alley band
Who swear to save sacred burial land
They said my name should’ve been clover
A twinkle in me eye went super nova

It's the dreamstate
It's the dreamstate
It's the dreamstate
It's the dreamstate

I put my whole lifetime into you
I put my whole lifetime into you
I put my whole lifetime into you
I put my whole lifetime into you
