Song: Will You See Me to the End?

Will You See Me to the End? [2017] (Pop-Rock Ballad)
This sad song is about confirming with your partner that your together truly to the end, no matter what may happen. As we get old and fail physically and mentally, will they still be there for you?
With this song, I was experimenting with different song structures and progressions, playing with modal interchange. This song is also in 5/4 time, which is something I prefer to gravitate towards.

Song: Sleepless Again

Sleepless Again [2017] (Rock Ballad)
This song I wrote in 2006 when I first moved to Louisville, Kentucky. I was struggling with a mood disorder and all the changes to my life at the time. I had just gotten out of a long-term relationship and trying to figure out who I was. Worst of all, I had some of the worst insomnia I had ever experienced.
This is a classic chord progression and in this recording I was working on my vocal production, feeling like I could finally express this song as well as it deserved. I love the dynamics of this song, it slowly gains energy throughout.

Song: Everyday a Dreamer Dies

Everyday a Dreamer Dies [2017] (Ballad)
This song is about dreaming for a better world, even though no one else may see that optimistic future. Most people give up on their dreams, and thus the dreamer dies.
I do not like this recording of this song, but it’s the only one I have. It fails to capture the feel of the song live. I learned that trying to record a free-form ballad to a tempo grid does not work so well.

Song: Land of Winter

Land of Winter [2016] (Electric Blues)
This blues song is about the winter of depression. Although, it was also written in the cold winter of Minnesota.
In the recording, I experimented with using two voices for the varying parts, using a falsetto. This was a somewhat free-form recording to let the blues sing out true. I had fun playing with an organ sound as well.
