about

These songs are a documentation of nakedness, recorded straight from an upright piano. Composed over the course of several years, inside each of the songs is a personal embodiment of time, they serve as testament toward the relationship I've built with the piano and the way in which it adapts and informs my understanding of life. I find these recordings to be my most vulnerable pieces as they forfeit the electronic narratives that are typical to the production of my previous albums, however these songs remain sincere to who I have become and what I can create from nothing.

I want to thank many friends, inspiration, and family all of whom peripherally witnessed and or supported me and my creative pursuits in one way or another:
