about

These demos have haunted me for ten years or more. All of these songs were intended to be officially recorded, but so much time has passed that I've realized I couldn't re-record them now without losing their sentimentality--the cracking and uneasy voice; the nostalgic improvised lyrics; the guitar tones; the awkward performances; the reverberation of my parents basement room. For me, listening to these songs has become more like looking at photographs of myself as a teenager; There is no going back and altering who I was then. Why would I change what has happened in the past--why be ashamed? For me, releasing these demos means embracing the person I always was, not the person I tried so hard to be.

I am sharing these demos in hope that you will understand that I could not go one more day keeping these memories locked away--I am letting my guard down; For your contribution of just 2$ you can share in some of the most special moments of my life, preserved and forever accepted.

These demos are dedicated to Vincent John, Roxanne, and Aurora Catherine.
