A Song A Week

I’ve been calling myself a singer/songwriter for a while now. And as ambiguous and contentious as that label is for many of artists in the music community, it does make one thing undeniably clear- I consider myself to be a person that writes songs and sings. The only problem is that I have a hard time calling myself a songwriter… Read more →

Songs by Local Artists I Want to Cover

I played a show at the legendary Java Joe’s in Ocean Beach the other night and was overwhelmed by the amazing talent of the San Diego music scene. There are so many fantastic singer/songwriters here and it’s a shame that more people aren’t exposed to their music. I think Jeffrey Joe said it best when he said, “On a night… Read more →

Affirmations

But lately, I’ve taken to many of them simply because I found myself in a place that was darker and more cynical than I wanted and because I needed frequent reminders that… Read more →

(Don’t) Know Thy Self

When I first started playing music, I knew right from the start that I would learn so much about myself through exploration, song-writing, performing, and so many other areas that come from being a musician. In the four and a half years that I’ve been performing my own music, I’ve come to understand so much about my personality, my likes… Read more →

It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday

I’d like to dedicate a song to someone who I’ve gotten to spend a lot of time with in the last few months. A friend with benefits, if you will. This friend helped me through some hard times and made trips to crowded places so much easier. I knew it wouldn’t last, but I’ve enjoyed all the time this friend… Read more →

Art vs. Science

A few days ago, my childhood friend Daniel said that he never would have guessed I would be “right brained”. I knew he was talking about my newfound interest in photography but it was such a strange idea to me that people would either be artistically inclined or primarily logical. I had never given it much thought before but the… Read more →

Welcome Back (Almost)

What a strange ride the last six months have been. I didn’t think I’d come away from everything that has happened with anything other than a few scars and some new hardware in my hips, but I have to admit that I have been learning and experiencing new things non-stop since late-November. I’ve been back in San Diego for about… Read more →
