Every now and then it is freeing to escape into an entirely different genre and even era. This is the type of music that was playing around the house and in the car throughout my childhood. "Setting Sail" is not necessarily indicative of my album to come later this year, but it is a loving tribute to the past.


I caught a flight to California
I took a trip to Mexico
I travelled on to Argentina
I thought a place could make me whole

I got it all wrong, I found all along that song in my heart was you

I'm setting sail with the only one person
Who brings a calm to the raging sea
And from now on, you're the only one person
I could want with me

I tried to find myself a fortune
I tried to write my name in stars
I spent my life to earn my portion
I thought a dime could fill my heart

Take me darling, take me darling anywhere you go
Take me darling, take me darling, make me all your own


released May 9, 2016
Anytime I create, I am indebted to the incredible team that created Logic Pro recording software. I arranged, recorded, and created all of the sounds you hear, but it wouldn't be possible without the incredible tools at my disposal via Apple.
