Homage (2014)

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.
