'Ghost in the City' is a shift to jammy shoe-gaze and ghostly freak-folk. Improvisation is a key ingredient as well as lyrical imagery and hauntingly bittersweet verses and choruses. The balance of jazz/jam piano, lucid, shoegaze guitar, and reverb-laden, lead vocals creates a unique sound that leaves the listeners feeling like there is a ghost in the room. Emotional and even catchy at times, dark themes and natural settings are predominant through out.
'Ghost in the City' will feature art from well known, local artist Mickey Harmon.

Risks and challenges
The goal of this album is to bring to life the best songs I've ever written. I feel like these are the songs I was meant to write over the last ten years of instrumental music and serious lyrical songwriting. Shifting from folk to dreamy shoegaze/freakfolk has been a breakthrough for my creativity and working with such an amazing musician as Dustin Lau has propelled the capability of these songs to a new level. We are both fathers to 3 year olds and work very hard for our families. It's a huge challenge to stay serious about music and also be present for our families, but the love for both comes naturally. Helping us fund this album will make this album possible and allow us to show you the life work of two people who put everything they can into what they do.
