about

I couldn't be happier to finally release my first full-length solo album, Glass! So much time, work, effort, and emotion went into the creation of this piece, and I'm so thrilled with the way everything turned out. I set off making this album with the goal that I would just let my thoughts flow, nothing pre-written, and see what comes to mind. These songs were all created as I went. Sometimes I'd come up with a melody walking down the block, or hiking in the woods, and I knew it had to be part of the album. Everything just felt so right. This album represents how far I've come today, and tracks the struggles I've faced over the past year, and the songs are the the most part, in the order that they were created. These songs represent who I am as not just an artist, but as a human being. I hope you all enjoy them:)

Track Name: Things to Do (feat. Jeffrey Liu)
THINGS TO DO // LYRICS

We drift together, over slate and sand.
Never looking back, hand in hand.
We say our goodbyes to the world below.
I see your eyes move to and fro.

We all dream of better things to do,
But I'd rather stay here with you.
When it gets rough,
When it gets tough,
I will always wait here for you.

We sing together under skies of blue,
Never thinking how our days are few.
I just wish you could read my mind.
The pages of the sublime.

We all dream of better things to do,
But I'd rather stay here with you.
When it gets rough,
When it gets tough,
I will always wait here for you.
Track Name: Glass (feat. Jack Sullivan)
GLASS // LYRICS

Tell me how you feel,
How it all feels unreal.
How nothing matters.
Of superficiality and reality,
I blame the latter.

We live on glass.
Such a sheer sheet of standstill;
Impasse.
Make a wrong move,
And it shatters.

Like something from a dream,
A lack of clarity.
Who cares for persistence lately?
I’m stuck under my heavy weight.
Do you find it hard to pick it up,
Or set things straight?

We live on glass.
Such a sheer sheet of standstill;
Impasse.
Make a wrong move,
And it shatters.

We live on glass.
Such a sheer sheet of a standstill impasse.
Make a wrong move, and it shatters.

We live on glass.
Such a sheer sheet of standstill;
Impasse.
Make a wrong move,
And it shatters.
Track Name: Fragment (Interlude)
FRAGMENT // LYRICS

We live on glass.
Track Name: Point of View
POINT OF VIEW // LYRICS

It seems kinda hard to listen
To what you're screaming at me.
Maybe if I drown your voice out,
I can finally find some peace.

Maybe you just gotta look at it,
Just gotta look at it,
from my point of view.
Maybe you just gotta look at it,
Just gotta look at it,
from my point of view.

All these embers flew like fireflies
In the fields we used to roam.
Since September I've said I'm feeling fine,
When I've never felt more alone.

Maybe you just gotta look at it,
Just gotta look at it,
from my point of view.
Maybe you just gotta look at it,
Just gotta look at it,
from my point of view.
Track Name: Overmorrow
OVERMORROW // LYRICS

You didn't see it coming did you,
The refracted light off the lies we're bonded to?
It's been a fun time here I suppose,
But I need to say what nobody else knows.
I need to say what nobody else knows.

I'll tell you overmorrow.
Tomorrow can't hide the sorrows of today.
I'll tell you overmorrow,
Cuz tomorrow will have to wait.

Of all the things I wish we could've done,
Should've saved our breath and held it 'til our last ones.
Departure from the truth never seemed so real.
Until then, my lips are sealed.

I'll tell you overmorrow.
Tomorrow can't hide the sorrows of today.
I'll tell you overmorrow,
Cuz tomorrow will have to wait.

If a sliver of hope existed in this world we all thrive in,
I'd throw away the rusting key and take your hand.

I'll tell you overmorrow.
Tomorrow can't hide the sorrows of today.
I'll tell you overmorrow,
Cuz tomorrow will have to wait.
Track Name: The Real You
THE REAL YOU // LYRICS

We've gone through more than I could take
With anyone else.
Told myself you were not another fake,
Just another fiction book on the shelf.

I'm really, really, really glad that everyone can see the real you now. (x2)

Funny how some things never change,
And others vanish like a ghost.
How couldn't I see you were deranged?
It's what I regret the most.

I'm really, really, really glad that everyone can see the real you now. (x4)

Hearing your name makes me sick to my stomach.
Hearing your name makes me wish I had run quick.
Just a little bit quicker,
Just a little bit quicker,
And I would've escaped the mess I am today.

I'm really, really, really glad that everyone can see the real you now. (x2)
Everybody can see the real you now.
Track Name: 514
514 // LYRICS

Shining bright in the night,
A web built with the carefullest of might.

514 little spiders all around, all around,
Will carry our fears away,
Without a sound, without a sound.

And we live another day,
With no time to think through
All the words we're gonna say.

514 little spiders all around, all around,
Will carry our fears away,
Without a sound, without a sound (x2)

514 little spiders all around, all around,
Will carry our fears away,
Without a sound, without a sound (x2)
