I wrote this song about a night I spent with someone I either really loved or who just inspired a lot of love in me. It has the added benefit of a totally belt-able bridge, which is basically my softest spot. Nothing is more cathartic than yelling on pitch.

Happy birthday to my best friend, who is definitely still learning a lot every day. I think of you sometimes when I'm writing about the feels I know we share. I wish you only the best, the most enlightening, and also the most intense and absurd so that you'll have very good stories to tell next time I see you.

I wrote this song after the first (and only?) time I was ever broken up with. I realized later that I was much happier on my own, but at the time I was just trying to make sense of that new, strange feeling—the feeling of not being wanted.

I wrote this song back when I was first learning guitar. That's why my strumming sounds so good. I'm much worse at it now!

Ties Are Weak
I wrote this song about my friend and a guy he was dating. It's not clear to me if this is about the way I felt about one or both of them, or if I was trying to guess how they felt, or what. Anyway, it's a hell of a fun song to sing, but I hate listening to it.

I've made few really cool changes to this song since I recorded this. There's, like, slides and shit. For real. Plus, I once played this song on ukulele on a beach in Florida. That was so bourgie.

This has always been the one of my songs that people seem to like best, and I can't for the life of me figure out why. It's good, I guess, but it's just definitely not my favorite. Plus, I'm shit at the guitar. Huh.

I wrote this song late one night while I was visiting my parents. First I wrote all the words in my head while lying in the guest bed. Then I crept out of bed and downstairs to the piano and very quietly wrote this song, one nearly silent key at a time, in the middle of the night.

I absolutely love this song. I tried simplifying it even more, and guess what? It worked. This song has room enough in it for both belting and playing a single key at a time. I know; I tested it.

Today is the first one-year anniversary I've ever had.. It's also the first time I dated a woman. So, of course, this song is all about her…and me…and our strange past and amazing future. Happy anniversary, baby girl.

I'm just a guy who writes music and then plays it. I feel like it's pretty straight-forward.
