I decided to be brave and finally upload this for AnnMarie57's Scar Pattern collab. I took this back in September along with my first upload but I was too afraid to put it up. I guess because it's me...exposed...on the internet...forever. Now I'm sucking it up and posting it, mostly because I feel safe enough here to share this with all of you. So thank you. There's the scar on my lower back from catching the corner of the fireplace (to the right) then a bit of my first tattoo. Oh! and I almost forgot about my birth mark. My dad and I share the same one, in the same spot only mine is just a wee bit bigger.
Here's to being brave <3
Beloved Henry Adam,
I was delighted to receive your letter to my master, despite you never actually sending it. The physical formalities between sender and recipient tend to bend in ...
- You Won't Stay
Really into this backing track by humunkulus and The rising7.
Combined lines from Megan Feaver, seldelaterre, and DevinLevi plus some of my own to make the lyrics.
Tried out a different, rougher kind of vocal approach.
***PS - If anyone has advice on how to make "s" sounds come out less crackly on a Blue Snowball mic please let me know! I've been playing with distance away from the mic, different recording levels, compression, etc. but I haven't figured it out yet. Thanks guys!!
Let’s start in the middle
So I don’t lose your attention
Been working on my
Dig in to love you
yeah you know I can but you won’t stay
You’re just another
one that just won’t last
So I’m really looking
forward to the past
Forewarned about you
They said you wear a mask cause you won’t stay
My body believes in boundless love
My mind it can make believe it does
Don’t want this act that I’m sure of
Why don’t you go away
If you won’t stay
If you won’t stay
And you won’t stay
It seems the site ate the end credits, boo. It plays correctly if you download. :(

and anchored tails hell-bent on dragging us into darkness...
Because holding everything together
while it tries to fall apart
made our legs strong enough
to push us to the surface
for one more breath.

Had quite a bit of fun with Robo J's bad ass guitar. It takes quite a turn at 2:20 so sit tight!
Stems coming soon!
- just a Bass stem
Work has been keeping me busy lately and left little time for me to hitRECord. With no end in sight, I gotta get my fix where I can. So...
Here's a little bass riff that came to me last night. I've been listening to a lot of Nightmares on Wax, Gramatik, and Visioneers lately so there's a little bit of that influence in this one.
I might turn it into something eventually but for now, I'd love to see what all of you talented folks can do with it. It's a 6 bar riff and I think I played it 5 or 6 times so there should be enough material to chop up and loop however you would like!
This is the raw wave file, no EQ, no compression, no nuthin! Just straight up bass in yo face!
Tempo: 92 BPM
Key: d minor
Chords: d minor, g minor
