Music

I SEE HER SOUL

This is a song I wrote in 2006 and recorded with just a guitar and then a backing track of me singing harmony. Lyrics

WAS I AM (old chorus)
WAS I AM (new chorus)

This is a song I wrote about leaving religion. I like the sound of the "old chorus" song better, but I like the chorus of the "new chorus" song a lot better. Lyrics

JUST LET GO

This was one of the first songs I wrote when I started playing and singing secular music again. That's Phil Sapienza on the drums. I think I played the rest of the instruments and did all the vocals. Lyrics

AS IS

This is a song about taking someone just like they are, without looking for improvements. I did all the instruments and vocals on this one. Lyrics

BLAME THE BEER

I was about 3/4 of the way drunk when I wrote and sang this. Don't judge me; it was something like 2008. Anyway, I just wanted to do a funny song about beer goggles. I don't even like beer, by the way. Lyrics

ROOM WITH A VIEW
(LIVE)
(Video)

I fell in love with a chord progression and this song stemmed from it. In the recorded and live versions, that's Phil Sapienza on drums. In the live version, Gene Longcrier is playing bass guitar. Lyrics

LITTLE CUTIE

I wrote this song about a girlfriend who was something like 18 years younger than me, and I guess I was feeling guilty about the age gap. That's Phil Sapienza on the drums and harmony vocals. Lyrics

SWEET GOODBYE

The bass guitarist in one of my bands asked me to write music for some lyrics he had, so I wrote the music to this song. The band broke up and I wasn't really fond of his lyrics, but I liked this music, so I ditched his lyrics and wrote my own. This is a rare instance where the song isn't about anything from real life. I'm doing all the instruments and vocals on this one. Lyrics

TWO BIRDS

This is a stupid song based on a true story. It's also the only time you'll ever hear me playing drums. I played all the instruments and sang all the vocals, but keep in mind this was recorded in 2005. Lyrics
