OK Cheeseboners, this one is old. Well, for me it is. This one, I actually wrote about 10 years ago. I've recorded it before but it's been a while and it never sounded that good before, so I wanted to drop the tuning and pound it out with some help from my new Esoterik LK27 Baritone!

Fun fact: The odd-time bridge in this song, wasn't originally the same. My old Chicago band "Inn Cinema" had a track that we were working on, and we transplanted the original bridge from this song into the Inn Cinema song. Collectively, we all improved it, but the updated version was never played out live or recorded. So, I recorded the Inn Cinema version of the bridge, transplanted it into the song you hear right here, and I love it this way. The outro of the song is essentially a clone of the *original* bridge, so you'll appreciate how much more interesting the new bridge is by comparison :)

Tuning is Drop A. Enjoy, peoples!!




released July 14, 2017
Everything you hear was written, recorded, mixed, and mastered by me, although the bridge in this one was also written by the rest of the Inn Cinema crew :)

Hey hey!

You may know me as the old lead guitarist from Nonpoint,, and more recently playing for Taproot, but what you may NOT know about me is that I write A LOT more music than what ends up on albums.

I'm hoping that you all enjoy the music and anything I earn here will go directly to baby bills, Haha. Believe me, I need it!

Much love everyone, and thank you for the support!!
