"Synthetic Sounds For The Modern Soul" is the first full length album I have released, and with that I wanted to approach things differently. I really wanted to capture the sounds of me playing around and exploring at home. Most of the music was written playing loops or messing with parts on an SP-555, capturing and putting down layer after layer.

With these clips I made arrangements and added more elements. The idea for the name of the album came from everything being recorded via synthesizers, electronic instruments, samplers and using synthetic amps/cabinets for the guitars. The songs progressed quickly and naturally with this new writing process and I am pretty happy with what came of it. The recordings were done throughout summer 2020 in my apartment.

Thanks to Zach Budinski for handling the mastering and to Alexander Khabbazi for designing the cover art.

Thank you to all who have listened to my music and have supported me in any way with this project, means a lot to me.

Thanks to my family, friends, and Ally for being by my side.

Dedicated to my loved ones.

Thanks for listening!
