Collecting Sounds Around the World

The compositions have been inspired by the fascinating cultures, people & friends I've encountered during my journeys. This album would never have seen the light of day without them.

Track Name: Gobi
Winter sets its pace for us
We cling to scrapes of coal
We’ve been waiting for the light imprisoned in our coats
I’ll try to remember, even when I’ve left
They still endure the cold
Track Name: Mandalay
I sit inside to rest my weary knees
The staring begins; I feel a grin
Cutting through my cheeks

And I know I can’t change you
But I know I’ll remember how pure

You are and how vain it makes me feel
To wish the world and resent a place
You would like to proudly call your


And I know I can’t change you
But I know I’ll remember the smiles

And cries that made me who I am
The beauty and the sympathy that shook my prudent hand

And I’ll try to remember
Track Name: Innate
When I saw the scale of the spoils
Your bare-naked feet blend with soil
The noise of the street drowning us
I wanted out

You couldn’t do as I did
Leave all behind and escape
Cover your tracks and your fate
No matter how hard you try
You’ll stay inside

You wanted out
I couldn’t get it
You wanted out
I couldn’t give it

Is there anything that I can do to save you from it all?
Telling you how good you are won’t ease the fall

But I’m sure you’ll find your own way
Planting the seeds every day
Changing the lines of the script
Re-writing life as a gift

You wanted out
I couldn’t give it

You wanted out
You were born in it

You wanted out
I couldn’t give it

You wanted out
You’ll make it out your own way
Track Name: A Moment of Silence
Kind wind, vast plains
Whispering a song without a name
This endless breath has made me wonder
“If it’s all enough, why do we want more”?

Say the words to me
And try to understand
Say the words to me
And take my hand

Why can’t you see?
“We’re all the same”
