This collection overall addresses the cruel nature of things we don’t have the authority or will to change, alone or collectively, and the misery these situations create. Struggling to cope with the wrongness of it all is the main story and it is a heavyhearted one that I’ve needed to tell. I’m excited to say that every song featuring acoustic guitar on this album is my own playing. Also the album download comes with a bonus PDF file I put together including 20 art pieces I think visually speak to the emotion in these songs. Please take a listen and I hope something you come across here you enjoy. I’m happy I could complete it and finally share.
A digital variation of the plastic fabric piece I use for my arts and crafts. It’s become a piece all it’s own in years.
First single ‘The Expectation’ from the next album. My acoustic guitar and vocals.
This was written for my mother’s birthday, to her and about her. Rather than stick with piano, I made it a challenge in writing the song with my acoustic guitar. Bandcamp download link: Dear Vivian Jane
I wrote this as a way to cope, a plea for more empathy & compassion.
This video was hell recording, but I did the best I could given I am a horrible guitar player…lol Took forever but I wanted the vocals right. –The One You Know –Recorded version is on my Spotify page: https://open.spotify.com/album/1HD3QE7DAptkzppy6L0hXu
I remastered my first collection of songs back in January / February. Now I can live with them being fully released. No more cringing during play pack, thank God.
I wrote this a few days ago, watching the rush to reopen and how upsetting it’s made me.
I see the fall
Everyone out for themselves.
The sacrifice was far too weak.
The first lesson is not one to teach.
We’d rather learn the hard way.
We need higher numbers – more lives we couldn’t save.
We’d rather never see their face.
You poor, poor thing…
Yesterday is a losing game.
And it makes me sick inside.
I’ll be proven right.
They’re all out for themselves, bringing fires of hell.
Witnessing the fall,
I wish I was wrong.
