about

The “Not Here But Now” album was written and recorded in the small north Iceland town of Ólafsfjörður during February 2017. This collection accurately captures my awareness and temperament -- moody downtempo rock grooves with ethereal synths, jazz-influenced rhythms, wistful piano themes, and short quirky vocal parts. Fleeting intuitive performances over brooding deliberate patterns that wander freely but find their way home.

Written & Recorded in Ólafsfjörður, Iceland.
Mixed & Mastered in Seattle, USA.

Special Thanks: I am very grateful to Listhus SAS for hosting me in Iceland and providing studio space on this artist residency; it was an energizing, emotional, and productive experience.

að eilífu (forever)

Track Name: All Around You
From the start
From the heart
Break apart
Take a heart

Clouds go by, don’t you cry
Don’t you know that nothing holds you
Watch the sky, don’t you cry
You must know it’s all around you

From the start
From the heart
Fall apart
Break a heart
Track Name: What Are We Hiding
Why are we stopping?
What are we hiding?
Summon the eons
Drink from the sea

Temporal musing
Fleeting attachment
Absent horizon
Scoured inside

Fledgling assurance
Taking exceptions
Pending privation
Charting the drift

What are we hiding?
Why are we stopping?
Summon the eons
Drink from the sea
Track Name: Vegvísir
It’s dark, always dark
Ice - wind - cold - dark
Move across that barren pass
Endless nights, there and back

Please don’t let me, let me die
In a blizzard, in a blizzard tonight
Please don’t let me, let me die
In a blizzard, in a blizzard tonight

Lure me on elusive form
Prudent shift, margins torn
Walk beyond that windblown track
Here to there, there and back

Please don’t let me, let me die
In a blizzard, in a blizzard tonight
Please don’t let me die...
In a blizzard tonight
Track Name: You Can Stop Now
All your answers have flown
Mountain tops you thought you could own
Lost like teardrops, fallen years

All those plans that you made
All the friends you thought you could save
Swept away like sand and rain

At the end you’ve got nothing to show
You could stop here and no one would know
Here at the end there is nothing but road
You can stop now and no one will know

All that could’ve been yours
Sneaking suspicions you sadly ignored
Fallen treaties, former oaths

At the end you’ve got nothing to show
You could stop here and no one would know
Here at the end there is nothing but road
You can stop now and no one will know

You can stop now
