These are the first 3 pieces of music I composed when I started playing mandolin. I had no idea what I was doing LOL - "This thing is upside down and so tiny and so hard to play!" . That's what I was screaming in my head.

Everything I played on mandolin sounded so fresh since none of the shapes I was used to on guitar had any relevance. I worked my eyeballs off and slowly got the hang of it. In the end, I had no intention of being a mandolin master, I just wanted some new sounds and colors, and this little freak of an instrument didn't disappoint.

I am currently working on the full length album, and I hope to be able to record it at some point in 2018, with an idealistic goal of an xmas release.


released January 1, 2011

Recorded on garage band in my bedroom in Burbank. Mastered by Chad Shlosser in Marina del Rey.
