  • Home Demo Collection: Slumber Queen
  • Posted: September 29, 2022
  • Released as part of the Home Demo Collection. This song is an original that I wrote, titled "Slumber Queen". It is a break-up song. A year or two before I met my wife, I was in a dating relationship with a young woman who, I found as we got further into the relationship, liked to take a lot of naps, which inspired the song title. I won't go into a lot of details, but the relationship ended fairly amicably after about 3 months and we went our own separate ways. We both realized that we weren't really right for each other. I wrote this song within a few days after the relationship ended as I reflected back on what I saw and what I learned about her and myself during that period of time. Even though it's been years since that relationship occurred, I still feel as though I captured that time and place, those feelings and musings whenever I play this song. I hope it helps you if you ever go through a similar situation.

  • Home Demo Collection: Jack & Jill / Fall Back
  • Posted: September 20, 2022
  • Released as part of the Home Demo Collection. This is a medley of two original songs. The first song is titled "Jack & Jill", while the second song is an instrumental jam called "Fall Back". "Jack & Jill" was a collaboration between me and our former singer, Joe, and is a song about how sometimes we get into a relationship thinking it will heal us somehow but ultimately does more harm than good. I remember the day that Joe and I wrote this song: I started playing the chord progression and it perked Joe's attention. So then he started singing the melody while using jibberish for lyrics. We immediately turned on the 4 track recorder that we had at the time to capture the creation. A day or two later, Joe came back with the song fully decked out with the lyrics that you hear today, and I put down the rolling bassline (that you likely won't ever hear on cellphone or computer speakers). It was one of those "in the moment" type of things where you're glad that you have a recording device handy. The second song, "Fall Back", was included simply because this week we usher in the first day of Fall. This song was written in the early Fall several years ago, which inspired its name, and has always been an instrumental jam.

  • Home Demo Collection: Green River (Creedence Clearwater Revival cover)
  • Posted: September 12, 2022
  • Released as part of the Home Demo Collection. This is, without a doubt, my favorite Creedence tune. And I love a lot of Creedence tunes! This one is titled "Green River". To me, it's the beauty of simplicity with this song that really gets me: The rippin guitar riff, the driving swamp rock back beat, the lyrical images painted within the song. All that. And John Fogerty really drives home a message within this song that is so common to the human experience, which is: The world is a stressful place and you can easily lose yourself in it. So find your home and remember the things you love.

  • Home Demo Collection: Wasting Time (Jack Johnson cover)
  • Posted: September 05, 2022
  • Released as part of the Home Demo Collection. Well it's Labor Day weekend! And in the spirit of wasting time on a holiday weekend I thought I'd post this cover song titled "Wasting Time", written by Jack Johnson. It's another favorite track from one of my favorite summer albums, which is Jack's On and On album from 2003. Make sure to waste some time today, it's good for you every now and then!

  • Home Demo Collection: Walk the Tracks
  • Posted: August 30, 2022
  • Released as part of the Home Demo Collection. This song is titled, "Walk the Tracks", and was originally an instrumental jam written by our former singer, Joe, our drummer, Garrett, and I. I believe it was Garrett who came up with the song title. Anyway, a few years later when Casey was singing with us, Garrett and I started jamming on it again and Casey lit up hearing it and asked if he could throw some lyrics and a melody to the song. We obliged, and what you hear is what he wrote.

  • Home Demo Collection: I'm Here
  • Posted: August 23, 2022
  • Released as part of the Home Demo Collection. This song is titled "I'm Here" and written some years ago by our former singer, Joe, and the structure of the song was worked out by our drummer, Garrett, and I. We were listening to a lot of Blink-182 and White Stripes at the time (still do), so they were an influence. As it is, it's a breakup song, encapsulating many of the thoughts and feelings one would have in the aftermath of a breakup: The initial sting of the break, the wishful thinking that things could still work, the confusion and wondering if you're still on the right path in life, the lessons learned along the way. All that. If you've been through one, you know exactly how it goes.

  • Home Demo Collection: I Know You Know
  • Posted: August 18, 2022
  • Released as part of the Home Demo Collection. This is a song I first wrote back when I was 18, titled "I Know You Know". I had recently learned how to play major and minor 7th chords, so I decided to write an entire song using primarily these types of chords. I recently revamped it, complete with a super fuzz lead guitar loop during the chorus, updated lyrics, and flanger effects on my vocals to push it in the direction of electro-pop, which is where I think this song will ultimately end up when I make a master recording.

  • Home Demo Collection: Foolish Fool (Sublime cover)
  • Posted: August 08, 2022
  • Released as part of the Home Demo Collection. One of my favorite obscure tracks from Sublime's acoustic album, this is a cover song titled "Foolish Fool".

  • Home Demo Collection: Holes to Heaven (Jack Johnson cover)
  • Posted: August 01, 2022
  • Released as part of the Home Demo Collection. One of my favorite summer songs from one of my favorite summer albums, this is a cover song titled "Holes to Heaven". Originally written by Jack Johnson, it's from his On and On album, released in 2003.

  • Home Demo Collection: Moon Over Tucuman
  • Posted: July 25, 2022
  • Released as part of the Home Demo Collection. This song is titled "Moon Over Tucuman" and is a song about summer and camping. With summer in full swing and plenty of long, hot nights ahead of us before the next equinox, I wanted to put this one out there to capture this time and this place. Whether you're at a base camp and ready to summit a mountain at sunrise, or camping in your own backyard, here's to the camping experience! Never stop exploring!
