preset1 is an ongoing recording project with guitarist/troublefaker/SeaStar Ron Allen of Wynne C Blue and her Troublefakers and SeaStar.
This is my first real foray into songwriting, so I looked to my longtime favorite album from the Violent Femmes for inspiration. When I sat down to write the songs out jumped an angry and disturbed younger man.
Songs for Girls(2015)
A concept album using borrowed track names about the life of Stella - her experiences, her memories, and her hopes.
She does not know(2016)
A collaboration with my excellent friend and lyricist, Marta Walz. Any song that has a real title, she wrote it. Instantly. An album of longing. friendship, and world travels.
Sit for Nothing(2017)
A mashup of musical styles with song title inspiration from one of my favorite all-time albums.
