about

an invitation to openness & vulnerability

these songs were crafted with the intention to never reach a band setting and in turn became a practice of communicating grief and processing loss with loved ones once brought into this setting.

these songs were recorded several times over each (with the exception of track 7 which was recorded once and kept as that recording as it captured a moment moreso a feeling that needed developing) as a form of developing and moving through emotions, with and without support.

these songs will continue to develop I'm sure but this is the form of them I wish to settle on and share with you now in a solid form.

these songs are accompanied by a card game that I wish to have similar meaning. To open communication and peer-understanding, as well as empathy with each other. A simple game of 5 invitation cards that exist to help one reflect on and share something of possible importance or significance if wanted. (pdf included in full album download)

these songs are yours in the digital and physical realms. if you need to work out something financially or wish to trade something for something else you can contact me with the contact link. I believe truly in sliding scale pricing for physical goods, the set prices are the high side of that scale.

Track Name: ra vs. the sun bear
the heat breaks my body sore i am stripped of all potential take my place on this holy earth i have no faith give my body worth replace me
body broke but they saved your soul for living past what you can't control
i'll never confirm what i was told by people online / people i don't know
