about

Countless thanks to those who have believed in me, inspired me, elevated me, listened to my innumerable mixes and helped me take this first step. Sadie, Jordan, Casey, Maddee, Alex, Damien, Lily, Jesse, Aaron, Tyler, Max, Mom, Dad, and oodles of others who have helped me in ways neither they nor I will ever fully grasp. I am only as good as you have helped me become.

Track Name: Satyr9
My mother said to me,
"The river nymph won't hurt you,
Just close your eyes and virtue be a woman from the stream"
But lo, a satyr skulks in shadow,
Starry-eyed but sallow, intention ravaging the sea

That's how I fell through,
That's how I found you,
That's how I failed you,
That's how I found you

Don't look in the mirror,
The depth will swallow you up
Just waiting for a chance to be,
It hurts to be alive,
Cascading light from inside,
Please tell me I'm not alone

That's how I failed you,
That's how I found you
Track Name: Seychelles
White sand follows where the wind blows,
I don't remember time before the bluff,
The sky is indigo enough,
The stars make twinkling halos on the western waterline

You see their faces dissipate in the red light,
The sky engulfs the frame,
Tell yourself you needed this as everything's undone,
You feel their pity and you're under the spotlight,
You can't escape the shame,
The ocean's calling out for you,
There's saltwater under your skin

The city has no up or down to me,
all grid lines point to neon,
Jet stream falls on me,
Quicksand fades with me,
O Persephone where is your sense of misery,

You see their faces desiccate in the blue light,
The sky engulfs the frame,
Tell yourself you needed this as everything's undone,
You feel their pity and you're under the spotlight,
You can't escape the shame,
The ocean's calling out for you,
There's saltwater under your skin

I am the one you're telling not to wake,
I haven't slept in seasons I cannot recall,
It's not for martyrdom or your sake,
What will I do when summer turns to fall

You see their faces replicate in the white light,
The sky erupts in flame
Tell yourself you needed this as everything's undone,
You feel their pity and you're under the spotlight,
You can't escape the shame,
The ocean's calling out for you,
There's saltwater under your skin
