about

I am incredibly proud, humbled, and grateful to release my second full-length album, Chapter. This album essentially documents my thoughts and mentality since beginning the next chapter of my life, at Berklee College of Music. In addition, this album is my first time exploring a new style of music I coined "progressive electropop", a mix of EDM, singer-songwriter, and metal. There are a lot of firsts in here, from some crazy saxophone work by Zach Gilbert, beautiful violin playing by Corwin Zekley, and a track consisting entirely of my voice, "Ripple". I hope you all enjoy this release, and I'm so grateful for everyone's amazing support.

Track Name: Blades (feat. Corwin Zekley)
BLADES // LYRICS

I knew I had caught this disease
When I sneezed,
And you didn't bless me.
I was so naïve.
How did I live so peacefully?

Save me over the blades of an open sea.
We are who we want to be.

I knew I had done something wrong
For so long,
And it got the best of me.
Why didn't I consider the belief
That you would leave me?
Track Name: Trust Fall
TRUST FALL // LYRICS

Can I tell you what I need?
Just a little trust,
And a fire to feed.
These clouds above burn a dull white light into my eyes,
As a floating question begins to rise:

Would you catch me? (x2)
Would you catch me, even if I fell from the sky?
Would you catch me? (x2)
Would you catch me this time?

So can I hold you with just a gaze?
It's my little test to see if you fly away.
These clouds above burn a dull white light into my eyes,
As a floating question begins to rise:

Would you catch me? (x2)
Would you catch me, even if I fell from the sky?
Would you catch me? (x2)
Would you catch me this time?

Tell me again how you need me here,
And I'll believe you.
This is a trust fall.
Maybe I'll stay in the shadows,
Or I'll make it through.


Would you catch me? (x2)
Would you catch me, even if I fell from the sky?
Would you catch me? (x2)
Would you catch me this time?
Track Name: Clockwork (feat. Zach Gilbert)
CLOCKWORK // LYRICS

We all have those days,
Sat behind closed doors,
Chapstick for cold sores.
It's so appealing,
Like the answer's on the ceiling.
So revealing how we all come back for more.

Take me with a grain of salt
'Cause I might say it's all your fault.
And when the going gets tough,
I won't get mad at you because I haven't had enough.

It's like clockwork;
The seasons change.
It's like clockwork,
'Cause it happens everyday.
I could go from pure stability to fully deranged
In a matter of seconds,
And fall from the heavens above.

Your hair's just like creamer in coffee,
And you're sweet like toffee.
But baby,
I know you're just like me
Inside.

Take me with a grain of salt
'Cause I might say it's all your fault.
And when the going gets tough,
I won't get mad at you because I haven't had enough.

It's like clockwork;
The seasons change.
It's like clockwork,
'Cause it happens everyday.
I could go from pure stability to fully deranged
In a matter of seconds,
And fall from the heavens above.
Track Name: All Ears
ALL EARS // LYRICS

I can see the words coming out of your mouth,
And I'm caught in the crossfire.
And every little idiom is an imminent enemy, laced with my desire.
How do you live this way?
Judgement's all around.
It's quite the predicament;
Stick it to the Man and you won't be hell-bound.

I know it's hard to hold on,
But you know you've gotta get a move on.

I can see the embers in your eyes
Burning like a bonfire,
And I'm hypnotized.

I swear you have a seventh sense,
'Cause you can tell me things that haven't even happened yet.
So baby, baby, I'm listening,
And I'm right here.
So tell me, tell me what you want me to know
'Cause I'm all ears.

I can hear the words coming out of your mouth, and it's time to retire
All the negativity and hostility
Into the muck of the mire.
How did you live this way?
Judgement's all around.
It's quite the predicament
When there's no hope to be found.

I can see the embers in your eyes
Burning like a bonfire,
And I'm hypnotized.

I swear you have a seventh sense,
'Cause you can tell me things that haven't even happened yet.
So baby, baby, I'm listening,
And I'm right here.
So tell me, tell me what you want me to know
'Cause I'm all ears.

I'm listening.
Track Name: Ripple (Interlude)
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Deck of Cards
DECK OF CARDS // LYRICS

You tear me down like a deck of cards.
I'm wishing you would knock it off
So I don't fall apart.

But still, you look at me that way,
And I don't know what to say,
So please stay.

And if we find a way to fold what they've been
Hiding in their hands,
We could have such a great victory
When we foil their plans.

You stare me down like a pack of guards.
I'm wishing you would knock it off so we don't go back to the start.

But still, you look at me that way,
And I don't know what to say,
So please stay.
Please stay with me.

And if we find a way to fold what they've been
Hiding in their hands,
We could have such a great victory
When we foil their plans.
Track Name: Make Believe
MAKE BELIEVE // LYRICS

Look out into the water.
Every ripple seems to trickle
Right out of your eyes.

Do you see the skyline?
All the buildings have a gilding
Of moonlight.

Dip your feet into the river, and shiver
At the cold velvet.
These are the nights that we'll remember forever.
I wish you could've felt it.

It's a big world out there,
So hold on to me, oh baby.
And I know you're so scared.
Don't play make believe
With what you can't see.

We're all our own authors.
With a chisel and a drizzle
Of surprise,
We see the fine line
Separating estimating from hindsight.

Dip your feet into the river, and shiver
At the cold velvet.
These are the nights that we'll remember forever.
I wish you could've felt it.

It's a big world out there,
So hold on to me, oh baby.
And I know you're so scared.
Don't play make believe
With what you can't see.
Track Name: ADM
ADM // LYRICS

I've had this problem
For awhile now
Where I feel like another face in the crowd,
Expressionless,
Emotionless.

Stand up,
And face your demons now.
You don't have to know how.

I've held these thoughts in
For awhile now,
Where I feel like I'm being pushed to the ground.

Stand up,
And face your demons now.
You don't have to know how.

There's been a sighting of a life residing in your soul;
The potential never fails to grow.
What do we have here, another mind in disarray?
Our vacant train of thought should be arriving any day.

Stand up,
And face your demons now.
You don't have to know how.
Track Name: Dream
DREAM // LYRICS

I know it's bad when life seems hollow.
I'll trace my veins and shade the pain
With a swallow.
I'm swaying and praying for a lull in the daily grind.
The bustling buzz of the city
Keeps me alive.

I know I can push on,
but I need your help.
I need your help.

If the world is real, then prove it to me somehow,
'Cause I'm a solipsistic, cynical person now.
I see the other side
As a way to make me feel more alive.
