about

PLEASE NOTE:
This album is only available for download and full streaming briefly and periodically. The full recording is 90+ continuous minutes. If you'd like to hear or purchase the whole record, please contact me.

A song cycle
A blind film
An opera without actors or a stage
A dream I once had
About a bird
With oily black wings
Lit by fire
Over a darkened ocean
My heart is free and easy, baby

Guitar and vocals throughout recorded live, in one continuous take (we hit record, I played for about 90 minutes without stopping. That's the music). We added a few janglies and a little bit of synthesizer - that's it.

This music sounds like: swimming, horses running in the sand, various birds and the desire to fly away, the ocean, summertime, my baptism at the age of 14, experiencing geographic distance from loved ones, equating geographic distance with emotional distance, sunrise on a quiet beach, the wind on your bare ankles, the southeast Alaskan wilderness, eating watermelon on a big rock, doubting the existence of true love, perfume, the sound of a lover kissing your neck, chips, clouds singing, riding in cars. waterfalls, what do you say to someone you wish you still loved?, colors. worship songs from my childhood in the church, spontaneous and hallucinatory visions of nature, the feeling of getting a nice voicemail from your friends, lines from the film “Paris, Texas”, the feeling of freedom and ease in the heart, blueberries, a birthday party every night, and you, my friend, are the special one

Written at the base of the Three Sisters mountains in Sitka, Alaska

Track Name: The Sound of the Colors in the Sky
You are standing in the dark...
The sound of the sun
The sound of the water in the waves
The sound of a lover kissing your neck
The sound of the sun
Track Name: I Care for You
Are you the one my heart beats for?
I care for you
Gardenia perfume
She eats hydrangeas, baby
You’re still the woman I fell in love with
You’re still the woman I wish I loved
You’re still the woman I used to love
I care for you

I awake in fire
And sleep in the ocean
Track Name: A Raven's Wings
Who’s gonna love you when I’m gone?
Who’s gonna love you, my pretty little darling?
Who’s gonna love you, my pretty little angel?
Pray to the blackbirds for a safe return
Pray to the warblers for a guided path
I’m gonna grow a raven’s wings
Fly on way from here, my pretty little darling
Fly on home to you, my pretty little angel
Track Name: Little Waterfalls
We saw them ponies run
Their hooves all in the sand
It’s where I came to you
It’s where you turned from me

We sat upon the rocks
And let the juice run down
It’s where I came to you
It’s where you turned from me

We walked along the fence
Them boulders they tumbled down
Little waterfalls, little waterfalls
Track Name: Hi, Ben
Hi, Ben
We’re in a car
Call us back
We’re eating blueberries and chips
Love you, Oh
Miss you, Oh
Call us back
Track Name: Who's a Better Man Than Me
Who’s a better man than me?
Who’s a better man than me,
when you look at me with those eyes?

You still make me smile, my friend.
You still make me smile, my friend,
When you look at me with those gray eyes.

When you look at me, lord what I become!
When you look at me, and my tongue is numb!
When you look at me, and I’m feeling dumb!

Who’s a better man than me?
Track Name: Free Jazz for Miles Tokunow
My heart is free, baby
My heart is free and easy, baby
