about

My first home-made album!
It's a bit ridiculous, sloppy, immature and just plain awkward at times. But, I had to start somewhere I guess. These are the first songs I wrote/recorded when I got an 8 track. At the time, I figured "I just can't sing well, so whatever". I often took a first-take and left it that way. In fact, there were many times were I thought my bad voice was more humorous. There was a song or two I tried to re-do, but went back to the first take cause I thought it was more funny.
ALL of the songs could have been done better. I also didn't have full understanding of my equipment or the mixing/mastering. Excuses, excuses..? Not really, it's just a first effort. You have to fail before you can succeed. I don't consider this album a failure, but it is awkward. For me, it's like looking back at and old photo album and cringing at things. "Wow-- that was ridiculous. What was I thinking?" etc.
After sharing my 1st album w people I became much more self-conscious about my music (for better AND worse). I was very care-free about it at the time. I miss that care-free feeling I had and now find myself worrying about how someone might judge every song I make. These days I would never share anything so sloppy with people.
A few years after I made this, Rubik's Cube Nerd picked up some popularity on YouTube. Even Erno Rubik himself heard it and commented on Google+! Thank you to everyone who likes the song. Here's the whole album that it came from.

I'm just a guy who lives in Allen, TX. I'm married with two little kids. I recorded these albums on a digital 8-track. I'm working on more songs (when I have spare time) and hope to add a forth album in the future. I also have some videos on YouTube:
