This collection of work represents a few years of process from mid 2016 to early 2019. Writing, recording, mixing. A cycle that repeated until it felt right. Initial ideas hit me like diamond bullets, born of heartache, unrequited love, and the conviction that if I write beautiful tunes, she will be mine; Overcome with romantic obligation. You’d think a grown man would know better… Whatever.
Turning those ideas into retro-pop gems takes time. It takes sleepless nights, frenzied scribbling of notes for fear of forgetting some lyrical or melodic phrase that just popped in there. It takes trial and error. It takes months away from the material to come back to it afresh.
But I also understand that you like to build playlists and I have to share you with other artists.
For your convenience then, here’s a link to the EP on Spotify.
“Keyboards glisten with a late-night hue, for the textures linger in the mind long after they are over.”
And why do we do this? Why endure such torment? The songs demand nothing less; For they only contain my heart and soul.
You can download the first three tracks of this EP through an email link once you subscribe. A six track CD is also available.
Even though I like to think Once Around Saturn is all about me… It isn’t truely all about me. I work with wonderful musicians, singers and engineers. They bring the songs to life, and the time spent in the studio with such talent is a joy.

“The words are sugary, but at the same time the melodies exhibit the edginess of old school indietronica.”
