'Forensic' and 'LARK' now on bandcamp

'Forensic' and 'LARK' now on bandcamp


My 2005 release Forensic, which has until now not been digitally available.
It's my first self-release when I was breaking away from Candid Records. It came out on our musicians collective's label F-IRE Records. This was a super important period in my life, a time in which I discovered my need for artistic independence...I am still proud of the last minute of writing of "Monologue Man Pt 2"
