Music & Video

Now that you are here, I don’t want you to have to go elsewhere to listen to my music.
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.

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. And why do we do this? Why endure such torment? The songs demand nothing less; For they only contain my heart and soul.

“Keyboards glisten with a late-night hue, for the textures linger in the mind long after they are over.”



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.”
