I wrote this song over a decade ago and decided to finally re-record it and share with the world. I played all the instruments and recorded all the vocals in my closet. It’s been a long time since I recorded a full song all by myself. I hope to release a lot more songs in the near future. Follow me on Twitter | Instagram | Facebook | SoundCloud
Let me tell you the story (short version) behind this album. I started to write songs shortly after picking up the guitar in 2004. It happened while I was working at a Salvation Army summer camp in Minnesota. I initially started to write songs to cheer myself up and also my friends/co-workers at the time. I was encouraged to keep writing new songs and eventually produced a home-made album and sold/gave a lot away in 2005. In 2006, I met up with Mark Michaud in St. Louis, MO.
Mark has been my friend since I was about 5 years old. He is extremely talented and encouraging so I asked for his help, but we didn’t get to collaborate because we lived in different states. By God’s providence, we currently live in Arizona, relatively close, so we were able to put a 5-song EP together called “The Unpopular Appetite”. Mark produced the music based on songs I had already written, except the song Appetite. He had already made the music for it before I decided to put lyrics to it. Mark and I hope you’ll be encouraged by our work on many levels.
