    These are my self-made recordings from my bedroom and on the road. I play all the instruments and record sounds on my laptop, cell phone, and portable recorders. In most cases, these are the first scratch tracks I make after I finish writing a brand new song. My goal is to document the ideas. Sometimes I make mistakes or hit wrong buttons, but I like it that way.

    These recordings are available for FREE (enter 0).
    You can be extra cool and DONATE by naming your own price below to support my recording addiction and help me bring all the songs and sounds I hear in my head out into the world.

Track Name: Perfect Circumstance
Everything's almost in place,
She's straightening her costume, powdering her face,
The letter is taped to the door where he used to sleep.

Jackson has plenty of food in his bowl,
The bills have been gathered, counted and paid,
It's 73 degrees outside,
What a perfect day to slip away.

All the ducks are in line,
They plucked out their feathers one at a time,
Now the water has started to boil,
Such an easy crime.

Down the stairs in the garage,
A 61 convertible baby blue dodge,
She knows its the simplest chance,
The perfect circumstance.

So she turns the key,
Shuts her eyes to dream,
Track Name: Trigger Finger
I'm not to blame
a jealous flame
fell from the sun
and like a hungry eel
out for a kill
it wore a hole in me

Never gonna get over you
Trigger Finger

I tried to love you like the only
but now I'm scared to think it might have never shown

If hollow steel
is what I feel
two hands and steady
why ask me why
I know we tried
but failed to hit the mark

Never gonna get over you
Trigger Finger

I tried to love you like the only
but now I'm scared to think it might have never shown
