Ocean Floor Funeral

Released June, 2015

Ocean Floor Funeral is something of a therapeutic (mini-)album; certainly for me, as its writer and performer, and hopefully for you.  While some of the songs are quite old, I began recording the EP a few months after my mother died, which affects the overall mood, and directly informed the writing of the track, “What’s Your Home?”

The music contains, to some degree, the psychedelia of The Beatles, the harmonies of The Beach Boys, the cynicism of The Smiths, and the instrumentation of The Bluegrass Boys.  The vibe is comfortably melancholic, and melody is constant.  The lyrical topics are therapeutically depressing, and the instrumentation lush.
