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

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

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

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

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)
