ALBUM SNEAK PREVIEWS
ABOUT "THE SHADOW'S PATH"
The shadow's Path is a dark rock collection debut EP packing a powerful message. When I started, I had planned for three songs and an October 2020 release, but then song #4 came to me, then #5. I'm now rolling through production on my 6th track for the album and will release the full EP in January 2021. I'll give a little up front though. An instrumental version of "Save me from the Dark" will hit streaming platforms October 2nd (or when it get through the backlog of the distributor), and one single from the EP will release at the end of October to hold you over until the big day. You won't want to miss it.
LIKE A SHADOW
Have you had a stalker? I have, and I used to lay in bed at night wondering how it would feel if the tables had turned and I could be his worst nightmare. That's what "Like a Shadow" is all about. The victim overpowering the predator. It's my favorite in the collection--I like giving power to those who feel powerless.
"Concrete Fortress" digs deep into the brainscape to promote an unpopular message about how depression not only impacts those who deal with it everyday, but can't drag and even trap those we love in our mind's prison with us.
VOICES IN MY HEAD
This song has two separate meanings. For some, music is something they plan to do or schedule. I don't always have the ability to turn it off. "Voices in my head" is about the sleepless nights i've had with music and lyrics racing through my mind nagging at me at 2:00am to get out of bed to write a melody or compose a chorus. The notes keep after me until i get them on paper. This song is also a rebellion against naysayers who put down instead of encourage new artists. It's got just a touch of "coming out" vibe.
"Dead Time" isn't about death. It's about crazy vs. normal. The world has had more time than ever to stop moving and pay attention. What have we seen? Some days it feels like the world has gone crazy outside my four walls, but if crazy is the new normal, does that make me the anomaly, am i who's insane? It's time for everyone to wake up.
SAVE ME FROM THE DARK
Depression is an unrecognized pandemic. People struggle with it everyday, but society mainlines bubblegum pop and smiles to drown out the darkness buried underneath. It's a mask to wear, a negligible, short-term endorphine; not a cure. We need to stop labeling sadness, frustration and anger as abnormal. It's ok to feel something and it's even better to ask for help.
"Mad" is about both anger and madness in the crazy sense. It's about society's flawed perception that sadness is weak and anger is powerful.
