Here it is my first album. It has taken a lot of patience and perseverance to get to this point. Being a street performer and living on a shoe string budget, I have had to track, mix and record 4 of these song on my own. I have had a lot of help from friends and family and am very appreciative. I have learned that music is something that brings people together and am so grateful for all those who helped.
“Say What You Mean” is a song about being second in a long distance relationship. Oh, and the girl couldn’t be honest to save her life. I wrote this when I was in crunch time with Joe Gilder’s EP challenge which was a blast. It didn’t take long to write, I think I wrote it in a couple days.
“Modern Life” all started off one day when I went over to my drummer friend Joey Hennigan’s house. I brought a little Casio SK-1 sampler keyboard and Joey played some cool stuff on it. He played that awesome intro keyboard lick. We didn’t do much with it, but a year or so later I found that lick in my recordings and started playing with it.
“Words” is a song about society, honesty, gossip and influential pressure. I wrote the verse melody first on guitar, then slowly started on the chorus. Feeling kinda stuck, I aked my brother Justin Stills to help cowrite the lyrics. We wrote the chorus together and tether on the verses.
Yeh, Unseen is released today everywhere. I wrote “Unseen” about my dad who passed away when I was two. Even though he’s not here, I felt he has guided me through the darkness.
