about

Here are a few tunes that I wrote while slouching off the end of my bed.

The album was recorded live off the floor at Village Sound Studios in Halifax, Nova Scotia. We did it in three hours (with the help of some seriously good pizza and disturbing youtube videos).

I have always wanted to make something extremely raw and un-polished and full of honest imperfections. I wanted it to sound real, as if I was sitting in the living room half-cut at 2 in the morning (for some reason, that's when songs really start to make sense).

I'd like to thank Melanie Stone for providing her gorgeous voice on tracks 1, 2 and 4 (also, thanks for being a rad human).

The album was recorded and mixed (with many laughs) by Luke Batiot and Jason Michael Macisaac at Village Sound Studios.

It was mastered by Reuben Ghose of Mojito Mastering.

Track Name: Honest Apologies
all my friends and loved ones
they might think that this is overboard
but one thing that I’ve discovered
is not to fight what you can’t control

so fire off your burning questions
and I will answer without lies
but one thing I must confess, well
i’ve been a liar for the better part of this life

so here’s to you
oh to me
and to them
to honest apologies

to second chances
and starting again
to being over-loved
and under-slept

so tell me just where I hurt you
so I can start making my amends
and all of these selfish virtues
i’ll abandon and leave them for dead

so here’s to you
oh to me
and to them
to honest apologies

to second chances
and starting again
to being over-loved
and under-slept

so here’s to you
oh to me
and to them
to honest apologies

to second chances
and starting again
to being over-loved
and under-slept
Track Name: Turning Season
beauty like a turning season
a rose petal falling from a stem
and you turn around just as i am leaving
synchronized with the tides again

so you swing your heart out on a rope
and i will hang on till my hands grow weak
swing me to the moon and back
i will sing your pretty eyes to sleep

if i can't i have you well then no one should
if i can't love you well then no one can
oh but i'm not sure of much
but i'm damn sure of that
and i'm not sure of much these days

blinded by the morning sun
the naked pillow beside my head
and what the fuck have i just done
i gave up on the best i could've had

if i can't love you well then no one should
if i can't have you well then no one can
oh but i'm not sure of much
but i'm damn sure of that
and i'm not sure of much these days

if i can't i have you well then no one should
if i can't love you well then no one can
oh but i'm not sure of much
but i'm damn sure of that
and i'm not sure of much these days

beauty like a turning season
a rose petal just falling from the stem
Track Name: Young/Free/Wild
all my dreams are alive and well
motivation is at an all time high
i do what i please and do it for myself
because i still have my entire life

to be young
to be free
to be wild

to be young
to be free
to be wild

and isn't it blatantly obvious
just how much we both needed this
so take a deep breath
let our hearts divide
because we both have our entire lives

to be young
to be free
to be wild

to be young
to be free
to be wild

but nobody told me it would feel
like an unfamiliar road
or a highway without any signs

nobody told me it would feel
like this hollow chest of mine
is just counting the days

but you and i will be fine my dear
we just needed some time to heal
so buckle up
and enjoy the ride
because we both have our entire lives

to be young
to be free
to be wild

to be young
to be free
to be wild

to live fast
to live life
in the now

to be young
to be free
to be wild
Track Name: Last Goodbye
memories don't mean a thing
when they're covered in dust
burnt to ash and scattered to the wind

lost conversations that i wish i would've penned
but now i just replay them in my mind

but we move on
reluctantly
days pass by
weeks without dreams

but this will be my last goodbye
for a long long time
for a long long while

this will be my last goodbye
for a long long time
for a long long while

well days and months and years go by
but we just keep on living life
heads down and our shoes untied

and time can be a crazy bitch
but even i know better than
to think that it could bring you back to life

but we move on
reluctantly
days pass by
months without sleep

and even though you gave it your all
it's just too damn late to change your mind
and we blame it on a ninety foot fall
oh we blame it on a bridge in the night

but we move on
reluctantly
days pass by
years without dreams

but this will be my last goodbye
for a long long time
for a long long while

this will be my last goodbye
for a long long time
for a long long while

this will be my last goodbye
for a long long time
for a long long while
