Free Poison

Here is a link to download my song “Poisonous” for free.

It’s kind of a singer-songwriter alt-rock tinged with electronica type of thing.

If you know someone… let’s say a friend… who is dating someone who happens to be a terrible excuse for a human being… please play your friend this song.  Or just play this video.

The lyrics are rather blunt and leave little to the imagination.  But there are still people who just won’t get it, so you may need to help them out.

I’m not saying it will work.  Sometimes the friend will never learn, other times they will only discover the true nature of their significant other under the worst possible circumstances.  And unfortunately, sometimes there won’t be anything you can do.

I think it’s important to be able to recognize emotionally shallow/unempathetic people and to stay far away from them.  Sure, they’ll probably keep on destroying everything and everyone in their path.  But don’t say I never warned ya.

the cold

I’ve been working on this song for awhile. I’ve finally put it on Bandcamp. I am not sure if this will be the final version, but it’s part of my idea to get the songs out there before I release the album. I’m going to start small and branch out…

If people are interested in these songs, then I’ll definitely release a CD/vinyl/something.  If not, then I won’t!  At least I’ll have these songs out of my system and will have room in my head for new creations.

This song is about the cold and the ocean. It’s an acoustic song. It features a female vocalist (me). You might like this song if you like Adele or R.E.M. or Tori Amos… or maybe if you just hate the cold.
