2 Playlists For The Price Of 1
So I was doing a little music clean out and organization (something you can do with your isolation time) and I realized that I made two playlists I never posted. So I thought, might as well release them at the same time. I wanted to make a new playlist but I already had two hidden in my pocket. I guess these songs are sort of part one and part two of growth. I think a lot has happened since the start of the first playlist and the one after that.
Who thought that going through old music would be somewhat emotionally exhausting. I started going through the playlist that started it all – We’ll let you know-, originally the playlist was not posted but I decided to edit into a previous post of new years 2019. It’s just a bunch of songs right? But for some reason, it meant much more than that to me. It was sort of a diary of songs and I even wrote in one of my journals an in-depth understanding and reading of what these songs mean to me. This was the time when I came out and when I broke off into the world. It was a time when I met new people and new friends, which are either still in my life or not at all. All the same, it’s a special moment in my life.
These next two playlists were ones that I got lost in but lost in a good way. A happy lost.
The named of the playlist -i cant tell if im smiling-
This is the start of confusion and realization. I wasn’t sure if I was happy, hence not knowing for sure if I’m smiling because I feel that I haven’t been okay for a while. Smiling is a new action. I think I got a new hair cut. Maybe I was Continue reading “Diary of Songs”

“This night has opened my eyes…”
Hi, it’s been about a month? Maybe? And this “night” is not any particular night, its a lyric from a song that describes a lot of the first month and few weeks of the new year, and I thought I could reflect a little bit on it. Not in specifics but you know what I mean! Continue reading “New Harmony – An Update”
This album – I have been obsessing over…
I wouldn’t call this an album review, more like an appreciation. This week I got really tired at picking music and skimming over my playlists, and what great way to fix the problem is by listening to an album, and I happened to pick The Drum’s 2017 album Abysmal Thoughts. I knew at least Continue reading “The Drums- Abysmal Thoughts (An Album Appreciation)”

I just released a new song on SoundCloud. Yes I know it’s been almost a year since I’ve released anything more than a minute. This song just came to me in literally two days. The words were already there, I just spent all of last night and this morning to make something which I am okay with haha.
So…… L I S T E N—W I T H—H E A D P H O N E S… and enjoy my croaks 😉

Updates, inspirations, and what the heck is going on
Nothing about advice, It has been a while since I’ve talked about making songs. Sorry to let any of ya’ll down but nothing is finished yet. I know! It’s been almost a year since I released a full song (which I should record again) and I know some of you that follow me want another song. Don’t worry though, there are about two or three songs that are in the process of being made. Now that I’m back in Austin, I’ll have more time and concentration for those songs.
I know that my music isn’t the best quality, but I enjoy making it. I am still self conscious about my voice, and I know that I shouldn’t care about what other people think, but I care about what I think. If I know I could do better I want that to be on the recording, not something I just slapped together. Although, slapping something together is the funnest of songwriting. I realized that I really enjoy making something together with someone else. When I was visiting my family, my brother and I were messing around with some chords I played with him beat boxing along with it. It was really fun and I wish I could make music with him because we think alike and bond together when it comes to music. Its great to have another person there to help with creative blocks and give you new perspectives on things.
Maybe by the end of this break I’ll release one of the songs but we’ll see! Lately I’ve been listening to a lot of music and I made a playlist of songs that inspire me to make that music. I’ve been vibing to HOMESHAKE, Jack Stauber, World Brain, Morrissey, and My Bloody Valentine and a few Soundcloud artists. Taking time on making this music really matters to me, I feel that creating something is very therapeutic and meaningful.
Yes-I did take a week off but it was due to the holiday and the fact that I have been sort of feeling slightly under the weather. However, that meant that I was laying in my room listening to all kinds of tunes ;). So enjoy! You’ll see me in the New Year.

Hello! It’s Back…
It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Yes! The blog is back with the songs of the week, I hope that everyone had a wonderful break and ate lots of food! Now, the Song of The Week has been really backed up, I sort of lost track of a lot of new songs I’ve been into so I’ll do my best at trying to keep the listen small yet current to my taste.
