Before I knew which direction I wanted to go, I made this multi tracked album in the summer of 2014. I became obsessed with trying to find my sound so I shaved my songs down to be like a "normal" or "non-extraordinary" album. I did still play the drum machine and keyboard with my toes to keep it as authentic as possible. In the end of May I convinced my friend Jeromy D'amico to mix and master the songs I was recording. After listening to a few demos, he agreed. It was a coast to coast collaboration as he was in NYC and I in Phoenix, Arizona. All of the tracks were recorded in my apartment at various times of day. I used to call in sick if I was on a creative kick. At one time, this was to serve as my first album.
