about

a cute summary of where I'm currently at musically :~)

the album title is a reference to Death Grips' 2012 album, "NO LOVE DEEP WEB"; don't look it up unless you feel like you'd be comfortable looking at an erect penis

ALSO I promise "I've Never Been" doesn't sound weird if you download it!!!

special thanks to:

Maxton Stenstrom, for constantly encouraging me and proposing to me the idea of putting my music up for sale in the first place

Harry Tomlinson, for all his more recent kind words and thoughts regarding my music and me in general

Nick Bottomley, for adding electric guitar to “Yeah, Alright”
and “Wait, Stop,” and somehow managing to keep in touch with me after graduation

Ella Schierbeck, for being my self-proclaimed #1 fan

Caitlin DeRocker, for being my first girlfriend and a person I was very close to, in turn inspiring me to write songs about her and to become a more considerate person

Kelly Montoya, for also being someone I've become close to, but in a way I never really expected, and during a very crucial period of my youth (though honestly I wont be able to say how significant any of this is until after a few years, but it feels heavy right now, and I guess that’s what counts). I’m sorry things are rough right now

also this is dedicated to Bekn Dignum because he’s my valentine :^)

hi bekn, thank you for being one of the kindest and most loving people i've ever met. i feel like each time we've spoken on skype has been profound in some way, if not intellectually, then emotionally. knowing you has been such a pleasure and discovering how unexpectedly similar we are to each other has been a delight unlike anything else i've ever experienced. i love u, let's speak soon <3

Track Name: I've Never Been
i’ve never been something like this to someone before
i don’t know if this is what i want or if i want it more
i can’t say if this is something that i’d like to keep
but now the only advice for you i have is to go to sleep
Track Name: Focus
it's as if you're farsighted
when it comes to seeing the people who love you the most
the closer they are, the more they are blurred
it's as if you've never heard when they've said,
"i love you," and "you're fantastic," and "you are my friend"

you need to tell the difference
between the fabricated truth you've pieced together
and reality
