I stood and watched my house burn down The life that we built, all gone to ground The clues, the hints I failed to catch And I'm the one who struck the match Is there a trace of what you sold For moments of grace, this poor fool's gold I never knew how much you meant Until I smelled that sulfur scent And if you've been considering The wages of desire Baby, it's the ashes, not the fire The flash and the spark, don't ask me why I thought that we'd seen the worst gone by But now, these bonds all repossessed The years ahead, the lonesomeness And if you've been considering The wages of desire Baby, it's the ashes, not the fire

Once, long ago I set my sights on distant lights Oh, the miles I’d go maps and charts and seasick hearts kept singing you a sunrise song dreaming you could sing along can’t imagine how my whole life long just want to say I’ve seen your face it’s a real nice day up, I gave you up a fairytale I lost the trail star, behind a star I searched so far and here you are kept singing you a sunrise song dreaming you could sing along can’t imagine how my whole life long just want to say I’ve seen your face it’s a real nice day

about

I've been quietly working throughout 2020 on a solo album called "Small Stars." It's a collection of what I like to call "small songs": intimate, fairly simple, mostly acoustic songs. The songs are unusually personal songs for me, with a lot more deep emotional connection than the more abstract storytelling I've been largely trading on for a while now. Some of my favorite local musicians make cameos on the album, but much of it is just me. Three of the ten songs were mixed (and had additional musical pixie-dust sprinkled on them) by the wonderful Chris Stamey. All were mastered by Anand Gan.

Much like my colleagues, Beyonce and T-Swift, I've decided to drop it, as the kids say, with little hype or fanfare. Here's the deal: I'm going to release one song per week on my Bandcamp page, and I'll be making a whole lot of little homemade videos, as well.
