Seedlings (2008)

I've called this Seedlings since they are all newly formed tunes that haven't reached full maturity. I'll nurture and prune them and see what becomes of them. Thanks to Fae for the artwork and support to get through this project and Adam for the back cover photo.

Down Not Out (2009)

Some blues, a ballad, and some odds and ends. This is mostly a sketchpad to get some ideas out that I'll then go back to and pick ones that I like and refine them.

Sketchpad (2010)

This year I was trying to focus more on melody as a starting point for tunes...rather than say, a chord progression and beats first.

Ableton Ten (2015)

Was diving into learning Ableton Live software more fully and decided to use if for all of my 2015 RPM project, hence the not so creative title 10 tunes recorded with that software...many of the tunes were created using the Ableton Push controller/instrument. Got some guitar and bass played too.
