songwriting and arrangement incorporating indie-rock and psychedelic-folk elements that combine in what the Anchorage Press calls "happy-go-lucky pop-rock".

hey little sister, what have you done? you've got a lot of problem, whoa and I've got none. Well I'd like to believe it, that no one's bringing you down. Well I'd love to believe it, yeah but I know it's wrong.
They caught another killer, late last night. Sometimes the world around me, just ain't right. And I'm rooting for the losers, ones that don't stand a chance. I'm rooting for the losers, yeah cuz we've got fans.
I've seen a hundred channels, starred at every one. Been a million places, whoa I had some fun. Walk me down the back streets, lead me by the hand. Let me feel the backbeat of a rock n roll band.
Track Name: The Watchman
Here comes a helpless man, with blood on his shoes.
With mud in his vains. He's watching the minute hand. He checks the dial again.
We've all seen his face on the corner, I've seen his face in the mirror, oh the watchman.
Happy to walk the streets. Well, happy is a little strong. I never saw him crack a smile, but I was busy in car, with the radio on. I turn the dial again.
There must have been a story why, but no one ever got it right. I heard it was an accident. I heard it was an overdose. I never heard it from him. I better check my story again.
We've all seen him down on the corner, down and out.
Track Name: Hometowns
Somehow hometowns are better down on paper and never how you like to remember. Some towns get down and mixed up, not your job to fix up, when all you really need is a suitcase.
I've been dragged through Wishkah mud, I've been high on Mexican drugs, drove a car at 5 am, dodge the cops from old Hoquiam, cuz I loved you then, not so sure about us now.
Somehow hometowns get clearer out the rear view mirror, then and only then do you feel free. Some towns feel desert island lonely, it's best to get going, Aberdeen's a good place to come from.
