A Song a Month for a Year is Under Way! Hear Song 1 of 12

Crew, I’m excited and nervous to start releasing a song a month for a year. This year is going to be a blast and a marathon. I can’t wait to share them all with you.

September 1st, I released song 1 of 12, “What Were You Born For?”

I wrote this song after stumbling around in the occult section of a dusty NYC bookstore. I cracked open a volume about the Left Hand Path. I read about some folks who like to envision a fierce and loyal spirit animal/daemon following them, whose purpose is to guide and protect them. Essentially helping them answer the question: “What were you born for?”

With that in mind, I penned a tune that helped me coax out the answer for myself. What’s your answer?

New Single "What Were You Born For?" OUT NOW!

"What Were You Born For?" is here! Please take a listen.

This is the first of twelve singles that I'll be releasing over the next year. One a month. So excited. I want to express my gratitude to Andy Seltzer who will produce these tunes. It's been a blast creating these songs and it's going to be a fun challenge to get a new one out every four weeks. Stay tuned! Enjoy the song below!
