This song is 10+ years old. Studio version is about 2yrs old now and has added bells…lol and backing vocals. I wish I could do more and be better. Some things will just always be out of my reach and I’m still figuring out how to live with that: https://open.spotify.com/track/2tZoHqj7Wrc2dCvFsgR7jk?si=8258beaaf3c04476
An old poem I put to music last year. This was tough to record a performance of, but kept practicing and I liked this shot best to share.
I haven’t recorded this song yet and not set on a title either, but this is a demo. I cut some of the original lyrics and set them aside for something darker. What’s left was a better fit for a piano based arrangement.
I wrote this back in April / May, recorded the video about 2 weeks ago.
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.
Today is my birthday and for my 30th I wanted to release an album I know I challenged myself to write and could be proud of. I am not disappointed and feel at peace with the best work I’ve done so far.

I am putting together a short collection of very old songs I re-recorded and want to release together. This is one of my favorites of those early pieces. I’d had my first piano for less than a year and was amazed at how many ideas I was following through. It meant everything.
This I hope will be the last collection of boring acoustic piano pieces. I need variety and will try to make the next set a real difference from prior work. Time to experiment.
I finally finished my second song collection. The painting above is the cover image. It’s the work itself I live for. This could suck to everyone else, but even so, this all accounts for my time here not being a complete waste. We all need something to live for. I’m already working on #3 with an aim to get the music & timing just right for each song. Trying to get things perfect drives me nuts but I can’t help myself…lol
