Break My Heart

Break My Heart is a fun upbeat song about the awkwardness, everyone has felt, of meeting someone you are interested in but are not sure if they are available. "You could break my heart if you wanted to. Just tell me there's someone you belong to."

Some Other Time

Blue is a hauntingly beautiful song about relationship dynamics that unfold over time. The singer compares his lover to the sun, stars, and moon. It ends with the words "A friend as constant as the moon...for you have phases too."

The Glass Box

The Glass Box is a deep and insightful song about the aches and pains of growing up and the child within that we carry into adulthood. It is a beautiful song with heartfelt lyrics and nice guitar work. Yes... this is a picture of the composer as a child.

Occupy Duplicity

Long live the Occupy Movement. This song tells the tale of an aging hippie who, after years of fighting for human rights, flips to aid the Military Industrial Complex and Corporations in order to finally cash in. Subtle but funny.

Everybody Falls

Everbody Falls is a stirring song about the vulnerabilities all humans have for seduction. It is a mix of bluesie riffs and clever lyrics.
