This is perhaps my favorite live video ever. It’s “Optimistically Sober” from our show in Burbank last month, and it features our good friend Adam Coursen on third guitar, so it’s loud, and fucking chaotic. Also, the lighting gets all soft and sensual after I smooch the camera right around 1:04. Enjoy!

Lyrics:

You can call me optimistically sober,
but that’s the only way I know
to win you over,
and if the nights that
I had given you were longer,
I would have been happy to admit
that I was wrong, girl,
and it’s a shame I let you
think I didn’t want to,
it was my pride that I was
sick of holding onto, oh girl,
but now, I’m brokenhearted.

From one lover to another,
I’ll give your heart another
moment to recover.

CHAOTIC INTERLUDE

And if recovery is
going to exhaust you,
I would hate to let you
feel like I had lost you,
oh girl, but now I’m broken.

GUITARMONIES

Woah!
Woah-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh!
Woah-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh!
Woah-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, ay-oh-ay-oh!
Woah-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Woah-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Woah-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

The Halfway Home Diaries - Chapter 1: Settling The Score

Greetings, true believers!

I know you’ve been patiently awaiting our new full-length album “Kobiyashi Maru”, but as a means to keep those mouths watering, I am extremely excited to return to you with the introduction of a new feature…

"The Halfway Home Diaries", a song-by-song blog series in which I intend to openly analyze, scrutinize, brutalize, romanticize, and otherwise come to terms with “Songs for a Halfway Home”, the 2009 full-length album by my now-defunct Upstate, NY rock outfit, The Score. (The first, and only, full-length album I have had the privilege to release at this point)

The Score - Songs for a Halfway Home

First and foremost, if you haven’t heard the album, CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD “SONGS FOR A HALFWAY HOME” FOR FREE. (320kbps mp3)

sunset manifesto.

dear hollywood, i know i probably don’t look like you think i should. you won’t find me at an audition for a reality show. you will never see me wearing eyeliner at a show, and you will certainly never see me with a fucking neck tattoo, but when i’m on stage in my looney toons shirts and my beat up sneakers, i will perform with such ferocity that you will not be able to look away. you’re gonna know all the words to every single song that i write and you’re gonna hate me, because you’re never going to be able to forget them. you simply have no idea what you’re in for.

About Me

I am a 28 year old singer/songwriter from Watertown, NY, currently residing in Los Angeles, CA. I have an affinity for bowl cuts, whispering sweet nothings, Ghost Dad, professional wrestling, Lucy Lawless, and just about anything that could be classified as "Too Hot for TV". My debut full-length album "The Love and the Volume" will be available everywhere on October 14th, 2014.
