Before It Started – Song Demos

These are the three song demos for the EP “Before It Started”. I wrote these songs around…. 8 years ago, I think. They are some of the few that I still play. I am going to be working on these and adding more of my current style to them. I recorded these to give you an idea of where they sit right now. Please let me know what you think.

Eight Attempts (at Failure)


Update – Prosperity

I’ve been going through a lot of my music lately. Cleaning up old demos and going through old “albums”. So I figured I’d give an update on what my plans are for what I have. I’ll catalog these by year. 

2014 – Living in Slow Motion – EP

What: This was a 5 song EP of songs that I wrote when I really hit the style of music that I wanted to hit. 

Plans: Go in and record it for a finalized version. 

2016 – A Sad Ballet – Album

What: This was a concept album and my first real album to date. Tells a story of a love lost and the aftermath from it. 

Plans: At some point in the next year record all the instruments that I wrote for these songs instead of just an acoustic set.

2017 – Before It Started – EP

What: 3 songs that existed before Ocean of Sound that I still play every now and then. 

Plans: Record and give them some love. 

2017 – Prosperity – Album

What: Demos from the last year and a half. 

Plans: Working with 3-4 other people as a collaborative project to bring out the stories in these songs. 

2017 – (Untitled) – Album

What: Piano and string instrumentals. 

Plans: Sift through what I have and round out all these demos. 

2018-2019 – Home of Light – Album

What: New Demos. Everything that I come up with while I’m working on these other projects will go into this album. Same thing I did with Prosperity. All the demos I had while working on A Sad Ballet went into that. 

Plans: We’ll see when we get there. 

So that’s pretty much the update. Tons of music work to do. Working on some other side projects as well, so that’ll influence how much time makes its way into these. Hope you enjoy and look forward to updates. 



This is a song I wrote last January. 2 weeks shy of a year. Figured I’d update it and give it some finalized lyrics and vocals.

I think this’ll be the first actual demo for the Prosperity album.

Please enjoy.



Oh how I wish this summer would slowly fade away
It can’t be better now you say
And how I miss our old talks as I slowly drift to sleep
Oh how I wish for winter to hold your hand in mine
So much harder than before
Don’t you know that you’ve got it
You’ve lost that awful wire
In your hand you’ve got it

Oh how my chest aches now as the wind moves swiftly through
Through the hole that you once filled
Now my life’s so hollow like it was before
So much harder than before

Nothing you said was ever true
Now the river is oh so blue
The ice has melted and flows right through
