Debut Album “The Remains” (2011)
The title track “The Remains” originated from the combination of 3 separate ideas that, on their own, I could never seem to finish. I later realized that when pieced together, they finally made musical sense. Afterwards, I reflected on what the remains meant conceptually and concluded that life in general is also a combination of several things that, when taken alone or out of context, can sometimes seem insignificant or useless. We often see that for all the effort put forth into one project or idea, the final result is merely a small portion of it, and the majority of the investment manifests itself in the future. By combining the remains of all our efforts and experiences, we arrive at one powerful, essential conclusion that reveals who we truly are."
