about

My first solo release since early 2007, Modern Fiction is a stark departure from my previous efforts as a musician. This EP is the product of unrelenting DIY love. Conceptualized on the beaches of Nicaragua and recorded in my chilly garage studio in Portland, it represents numerous late nights, a lot of introspection, and reinventing the way I approach songwriting and production.

A special thanks to friends and family who made this album possible. No man is an island…

Track Name: Body Speak
Body Speak: lyrics

see the rivals in the yard
they are dancing to the beat.
and you go riding through the night
like the days are never free… anymore.

but you feel it in your bones.
when your body’s getting weak.
yeah the fight is in your soul,
I can see your body speak…

so let me see your body speak like this.
all of your secrets.
devils and demons.
out on the weekend.

we speak like this.
all of your secrets.
promise I’ll keep them
if you let your body speak.

so dull your senses with these drugs
push your body to the brink.
cause you’re a diamond in the rough
thrown as far as you can see.

but you feel it in your bones.
when your body’s getting weak.
yeah, the fight is in your soul,
I can see your body speak…

like this.
speak like this…

speak like this.
all of your secrets.
devils and demons.
out on the weekend.

we speak like this.
all of your secrets.
promise I’ll keep them
if you let your body speak.
Track Name: Zero
there are details in this life
they’re getting the best of me
like if i never get this right
will it be the death of me?

so i’ve been biding my time
twisting my fate
I watch the clock 
but its too late

and my life
it just won’t wait
its coming down…
til’ everything goes to zero.

baby everything goes to zero.
where its going down…

its coming to zero
this life I’m living
I’m shaking the dust
cause’ I want it right now
and I wanna know
the life I’m living
is gonna be enough
when it all goes down to zero.

degrees. in these hearts.
just so no one can rage against us
when the fire, it will start
burning through the city while...
I was watching in the dark.
and i tried to convince myself
that i’ve been living so well

when I've been biding my time
twisting my fate
I watch the clock 
but its too late

its coming to zero
this life I’m living
I’m shaking the dust
cause’ I want it right now
and I wanna know
the life I’m living
is gonna be enough
when it all goes down to zero.

til the fire burns out
til the lights go down.
til the lost is found
we will come around…

til the fire burns out
til the lights go down.
til the lost is found
we will come around… to zero.

and it all comes down to zero/ on your own… when it all comes down to zero.
