Album Notes
This album took three and a half years to make for a variety of reasons. Firstly, I was still honing my craft as a multi-instrumentalist, producer, and mixer while also learning to sing. But I actually had a finished album before this one you're hearing. I listened what I had and knew it could be better, so I scrapped what didn't work and refined what did over and over and over again. “Bloodless Arches” uses unconventional music production techniques, advanced harmonic progressions, and odd time signatures to direct attention toward the distortion of traditional song structures and pop music conventions. The audience will notice the rhythmic jitters, the tonal shifts, and the auto-tuned chihuahuas as deviations from - and derivations of - the norm because they no longer exist in an experimental void. Appealing to both fans of traditional radio formulas and avant-garde explorations, this project aims to build a bridge between these two seemingly oppositional worlds. With lyrics that communicate the struggles of depersonalization, existentialism, loneliness and self-doubt, Ways In Waves wants its audience to know that they are not alone, and that all life experiences are fuel for artistic expression.

I remember having a dream where an injured bird was lying on a sidewalk, dying as people walked by. The entire dream was spent watching this creature writhe and slowly pass away. I wanted to give it a story, to give it some meaning, or maybe just make myself feel better about that bird, and everything it represented in my life at the time. This album will take you through the motions of a very bad day, with a dream at the end (Wing To Collar) after falling asleep (Vacant Drifters).
