Is Idalee is Now Officially Dad Music?

Yes. I’m a dad now. Back in the day, I was partying in LA, recording in for a record company in Santa Monica and playing shows regularly. I’m at it again these days, the music part at least, and things have changed. I’ve changed. My...

Heal Lyrics

Heal. We wonder where we went wrong. Everything started out fine; we felt on fire, we felt strong. But the path we made took us away from the flame, And our new ID is a debt that can’t be repaid. Maybe we’re all out of ideas. Maybe all the futures we have belong in...

Life in Cartoon – Hollywood 2.0

Chapter the Second

I’m driving to LA tomorrow. If I leave early enough, and if my car can make it, I should be there by 10 or 11. It’s been a long time coming, this second act. I used to live there. I made some music and memories there. Now it’s been a few years since I’ve created...
