use the demon

Greetings Sonic Groove Live and Steemit!

I wrote this song while really stoned one night after my daughter Carmilla and I were wrapping up a rehearsal. I was asking my kids to contribute, but they didn’t LOL. This song was written to kinda sound tongue and cheek but in the song the term “demon” is intended to mean the individuality of the self we all have inside us to get us through the darker times in life. I hope you all enjoy!

Lyrics:
If you’re all alone and stoned
Use the demon
If your heart has turned to stone
Use the demon

If you’re in a world of make believe
That your eye cannot perceive
Don’t get your panties in a twist
Just let that demon scratch your itch

When your world is growing dark
Use the demon
When the light is in your heart
Use the demon

The song is set to be released through Circle Of Death Records as a single on November 30th. You can get an early listen and free download of the track right now through Dsound!

The Lie

Greetings!

It has been many months of writer’s block preventing me from writing lyrics, hence the over abundance of instrumentals on my part. This song is very personal and recounts the feelings I’ve had of recent over my battle to get my now 15 year old son mental help, which has done nothing but backfire on me and has ruined our relationship for the foreseeable future. If I’ve ever prided myself in anything it was how good of a father I was.

Lyrics:

That 12 gauge never looked so inviting
Hate to admit I can’t stop thinking
Of tasting my final cry
I’ve managed to lose every single part of me
My only son does not have respect for me
Can I pray to God to get my reason
Feel powerless against this absolute failure
My whole life’s been a lie

Once Fell To The Ground

Greetings!

Man… it seems like it’s been a while since I came up with some new music, but it’s only been like 9 or 10 days. I’ve had some continued difficulty with some of my children which is very stressful and makes a mind awful cluttered with negative bullshit, but one good thing that’s happened is I moved my studio to a bigger room. So, enjoy this new creation which is due out on Circle Of Death Records as a single this Halloween. This guitar piece is dedicated to the fall season, where things fall to the Earth and die in order to make room for new growth. Listen and Download now on Dsound!

All Things Awakened

Greetings!

I had to take a mental health break from the internet for the last few days but today I got myself back together and after a good morning workout, I got stoned and went into the music chamber to create this. This is set for release on October 15 on Circle Of Death Records as a single. For now, check it out on Dsound as well as YouTube, Reverbnation, and Choon.

A Stygian Trail

Greetings

This here is a tune I improvised on Steemit Open Mic 118 using my looper and acoustic guitar. Earlier today I fleshed it out with my Korg. I decided to release as a single on Circle Of Death and it will be out officially on October 8. Until then, it can be heard and downloaded on Dsound and streamed on Choon and Reverbnation.

Nutshell Cover

Greetings!

I decided to start sharing some old open mic performances with you and this is my rendition of the AIC song “Nutshell”. This is arguably one of their more popular and most covered tunes. Still, I decided to work up something using my acoustic, voice, and looper that would do it some sort of justice. I hope you all enjoy 🙂

autumn fade

Greetings!

This track is the latest of the current project I’m tentatively working on, an album of instrumental, meditative guitar. I generally get stoned and something comes to me in thought and I go and work on it. This one came at the end of last week as I was looking out of my window toward the north, seeing the image I used for this song and thinking of the coming of Autumn.

In The Middle

Greetings!!!

This is a new instrumental piece I came up with for acoustic guitar using my looper to perform. I’ve also placed this one on choon for streaming. At some point I’ll be releasing an album of instrumental guitar work on Circle Of Death, but until then enjoy this here and on Choon.
