i wrote and recorded these songs in the spring and summer of 2015, as soon as my friend rob taught me to play guitar. at the end of the summer, my hard drive crashed, taking the uncompressed tracks with it before i could release them.
now that a year's gone by, i'm not as concerned with the quality loss created by converting the MP3s to AIFs or whatever the heck. even the album art i've uploaded is essentially an enlarged thumbnail. this ep is where i started; i'd like to release it the way it is so i can grow musically in a transparent way.
released May 18, 2016
thx to rob, sean, greg, eliot, erin, and my dad, who all heard these songs when i first wrote them and inexplicably encouraged me to continue. also deanne moore, who showed me a poem by rumi that's continued to follow me into unexpected places over many years.
