These are the story problems of a boy who lives to make music. From the start until now, he just wants to return the favor for all the bands and songs he has discovered and loves. The songs that flood him with what he calls "that deep blue sensation". "It''s like infatuation," he said "like when moonlight falls...I don''t know how to describe it." A few years ago he moved to the city to find other like-minded individuals who would join him in his quest for creating dreamy indie-pop music. People like him who dress slightly off and wear confused hair as a matter of pride. People that are inspired by the glow from fireflies and stars and take enjoyment in the simple things, like paper airplanes. After much searching he did indeed find and was able to write and record songs with a variety of musicians. Through the years they joined him in this group, The Glasses. But none of them stuck around for very long. Like his psychiatrist says, "People are often of a strange nature." Forlorn, but still determined, the boy decided to go it alone. To continue to make music, but now on his own. He sold the tour van, gave up the precious real estate of an urban practice space and in turn purchased some low-budget recording equipment. From the small town world in his head and through a vivid change of seasons he finished another full-length album himself (though with some creative contributions from his friends). If you listen close enough, if you pay close attention to the music, you''ll discover in these songs what "shows through my t shirt." Even if, with his songs, he blew a kiss and it reached no one, well, at least he enjoyed making the thing. "There are a few moments on the album that I am very proud of," said the boy. "Particular movements of sound that reach into my chest. They make me feel good. I just hope that others will listen and feel good too, if only for a little while."
