I Can’t Believe It’s True

I Can’t Believe It’s True

This is a (True Story) love song. I wrote it during an social media interaction with a girl that I knew nothing about, but wanted to know everything about. This engagement later ended up with an in-person date where we shared our life stories & discussed our faith in Jesus Christ!

– I wrote & produced everything myself. I had a very talented guitarist come into the studio & mess around on the record. I ended up keeping & mixing some of those samples for this highly energetic track!

Downwards Spiral

Downwards Spiral

Downwards Spiral is a Covid-19 ISO home studio production that takes you on a dark and disturbing journey into the mind of a narcissist, someone that only looks out for number one and wonders why things fall to sh*t all the time?
Be warned while you hear the story of a hapless first-class A-hole!
…But the funky riff should make it all better!
Play it loud…Enjoy!

Whistle

Whistle

This is a song about a relationship where one person is always away and the other longs for them. The whistle connects them both together and reminds them of each other no matter where they are. I made the main instrumentation and lyrics and worked alongside another friend for the beat.

God’s Golden Fields

God’s Golden Fields

This song has story. Most songs have a story, I guess. But this story hits close to home. In 2017 we had tremendous wildfires in the Texas panhandle. Over 500,000 acres were burned with great losses of livestock and property.
But even more, we lost 4 people in that fire; Cody Crockett, Sydney Wallace, Sloan Everett and Cade Koch. Cody and Sydney were boyfriend and girlfriend and Sloan was their best friend. Cody, Sydney and Sloan lost their lives trying to save their cattle and horses. Cody was the son of my wife’s co-teacher in our little school. So, we were hit pretty hard. We live in a town of 740 people so everyone was deeply affected. After some restless nights, I wrote this song to honor their memory. It’s called God’s Golden Fields.

God’s gonna cut you down – Johnny Cash

You can run on for a long time Run on for a long time Run on for a long time Sooner or later God'll cut you down Sooner or later God'll cut you down Go tell that long tongue liar Go and tell that midnight rider Tell the rambler, the gambler, the back biter Tell 'em...

Sostienimi In Volo (Support Me In Flight)

Sostienimi In Volo (Support Me In Flight)

Sostienimi In Volo (Support Me In Flight) is a song written in collaboration with the writer Nadia Perrotta. The song is inspired by one of Nadia’s poems, where she describes her process of healing from severe Covid19 and post-covid condition. Nadia and I have developed a special bond through our creative skills during the pandemic. Thanks to our connection Nadia was able to regain emotional and physical strength by singing some of my songs and collaborating with me in song writing. This is what Nadia and I describe in our song. The day she recovered her ability to fill her lungs and sing again it felt like flying, my music being the wind supporting her wings.
Nadia wrote the poem in Italian during a stay in Rome for post-covid therapy. We decided to adapt the words into a song to fit with music I had composed previously. I wrote and sang some parts of the song in English and some in Italian. A peculiarity of our connection is the duality of languages we use to share our message together in Italian and English and that’s the reason why we decided to enter our song into this contest.

Peace and Comfort

Peace and Comfort

It’s country inspired re-connection to myself after leaving a relationship that I thought I could never!
Peace and Comfort expresses a wish that I had, that Rosemary would find happiness again, even though we did not work out and it heralds a realisation that I could start my life all over again.
Peace and Comfort is self penned with no collaborators.
