about

Originally released in 2010, "Cutting Cords" was my first album. It was an exhilarating project to make after having released only 4-track demos (recorded in my bedroom) up to that point.

When I acknowledged that the album turned 8 years old this year, I was inspired to have new life breathed into it. 10-year anniversaries are overrated, anyway! So, we pulled the masters from Matt's computer and Chris did his magic.

Included in this new edition is the song "1920", previously unavailable as a mastered track. I put out a rough mix of it in 2010 to celebrate my Nana's 90th birthday. After her passing this year, I felt like there was no question that the song should be included, even though it wasn't technically *on* "Cutting Cords".

Enjoy what you hear!

Track Name: Comin' Round
I remember you
comin’ round the garden, the garden
to see the sunny view (or lack thereof)
the first time was so long ago
there’s something that I never understood
my tether gathered here for everyone

I remember you
comin’ round the altar, the altar
to share your point of view (or lack thereof)
the first time you let yourself go
nothing that I do
compares to what he did, what he did
but why should I be blue
the fact is that I have you, I have you

when you were dancing merrily
it used to make me sick
but then I realized that I must stop being a prick
and I kept feeling sorry for myself
my oh my
but you still came around
and that was very very nice of you

I remember you
comin’ round my body, my body
to share your point of view (or lack thereof)
the first time you let yourself go
nothing that I do compares to what he did, what he did
but why should I be blue
the fact is that I have you, I have you

when you were dancing merrily
it used to make me sick
but then I realized that I must stop being a dick
and I kept feeling sorry for myself
my oh my
but you still came around
and that was very very nice of you

I remember you
comin’ round the garden, the garden
to share your point of view (or lack thereof)
the first time you let yourself go
nothing that I do
compares to what we did, what we did
but what should I be blue
the fact is that I have you, I have you
Track Name: Noise
Now that I’ve made some noise
Let there be peace
Let there be silence
Let there be blankness

Around me I feel you circling
Ghostly presence
Ghostly feeling
But dead weight

Loosen my limbs
Bite my tongue
Open my heart
Pull it out of my chest

For you

Just for you
