about

When reading interviews with artists, I've numerous times come across descriptions of the creative process as a grabbing hold of and hanging on to the art as it passes through or over them. I had a few experiences like that, but overall I thought it was pretentious.

In the summer of 2015, between the end of a relationship and a move to the small town of Sebastopol, I wrote and recorded these songs in my home of 5 years in Oakland. They were the first songs with lyrics that I'd record since arriving to Oakland, when I committed myself to studying and writing instrumental music for guitar.

I had no intention of writing music like this, but I'm glad I was pretentious enough to hold on tightly when it came.
