Oceanic 04:08
Tuileries 03:36


Looking Back Moving Forward speaks from old memories, the distant past.

Oceanic recalls the last days of summer. During a time when small things felt like big things.
Bedtime in Munich is an ode to a beautiful city, and an English Garden with brightly colored leaves in peak autumn that drift to the ground like falling snow.

Tuileries recalls a first visit to Paris many years ago. A stroll through the gardens of the same name and down the Seine and the profound effect of being from an industrial wasteland and being presented with such beauty for the first time.

Pretend I’m Invisible is about vulnerability.

Looking Back Moving Forward is four tracks of mournful melodies and sonic bliss.
