  • haunted house – voice memo

    This song went through so many iterations, but I have a soft spot for this first little demo that was just piano and vocals.

  • haunted house || bibliography

    Bibliographies are proof that work is never done alone, even if the work is done “alone.” I love taking this academic concept and applying it to my songwriting and production. As always, this bibliography is not comprehensive, but merely what/who I remember thinking about when I wrote and produced “haunted house.” bibliography (“haunted house”)

  • hypervigilance

  • “half of your cigarette”

    This song that I wrote 5 (?) years ago, popped into my head the other night, so I recorded what I remembered. The original song was 4 minutes or something, but I think the 0:50 version says just as much as the long version. In fact, maybe it is says more. I think there is […]
