about

______

Note: These recordings are those of a very young man, still in the midst of learning his craft. Know simply that these are what one could call songs of becoming - a season sealed in song. Written as I wandered, wept, roamed and rejoiced, they are presented here in their raw, unpolished state.

When he, as I, was young, Nietszche confirmed that “le monde te prend tel que tu te donnes”: I give myself here wearing no mask nor scarf to veil my face or my flaws. And although my voice may blemish and break, it bursts with the raptures (or fractures) these songs recall.
I dedicate these songs to the ones whom have given me strength, who have given me sense and certainty when I have faltered. I bow before you, my teachers, my masters and friends, my brothers - we cannot let our poetry run to ruin.
