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

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

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!
