about

This is a collection of songs that I wrote when I was just starting out as a musician. This music was recovered from ancient tapes and forgotten CDs from kindhearted friends and family who saved them after all these many years. I often gave these albums out as Christmas presents to show everyone what I had created during the year. It was also a relatively cheap present and, as a high-school and college student at the time, I didn't have a ton of money.

My equipment was extremely limited back in those days. I had a Casio piano I received for my birthday around 1996 and my computer, which I often built myself. Most of the notes in these songs were painstakingly entered manually via keyboard and mouse. Eventually I was able to invest in a cable which allowed me to record piano notes into the computer.

Over time my setup has grown and evolved, but this was where it all started.
