I didn't even think of this until I started mixing tonight that this song has the exact same structural gimmick as the last song I posted. Ooops. I guess that's the risk you take when you are totally unoriginal and working on a sort of compilation…

This isn't the best song I've ever written. I think that one is on the Quarantine Tunes Volume 1 playlist. No, it's not the best but... I'm pretty sure it's my favorite song I've ever written. Not because of the quality of the song, but because…

This was the last song I came up with for this year's National Solo Album Month and I think I'm going out on a good note. Sure it uses the cliche of switching between major (G) and the relative minor (Eminor) a lot in the chorus, but it works…

On the scale from crap to hit single, this one probably lands somewhere around B-side. I like the chorus, I like the bridge, I don't like the verse which sucks since I used it three times. Oh well. From a production inside-baseball standpoint…

And here we go - Edith FINALLY gets it... Actually, she's been getting it ever since I wrote it on the 29th May. I thought it would take a week or so, but it proved to be more of a fight than I was expecting. On top of struggling to sing…

I really wish I could sing. This one was written for the 2014 50/90. I remember it clearly. I set up with the intention of working on something else but plugged in my guitar and played this without thinking about it. Well, I guess I was…

I think I need to take a day off. My ears are turning to mush. I really struggled mixing this and I can't even tell if it's worth keeping or not. This song was written during my first attempt at doing anything in GarageBand. Prior August…

Prior to the switch to the white UI I was having an issue where all of my uploads were marked as private and I couldn’t change them. I created a second account and moved on. Then after the white UI switch I found a couple of tracks had vanished so I moved everything back to this account and deleted v2.

from Methuen, MA
