about

An acoustic EP from a little room in Chicago’s West Town neighborhood, straight to you.

It all starts with a song: a melody, some words, and some simple chords on an acoustic guitar in my bedroom or living room. From there, it can go just about anywhere. Maybe it’s a country song. Maybe it’s angry and punk. Maybe a lilting pop song. But no matter what it becomes, they all start the same way.

Now that I officially have no real band, I think this is the time to record and release something that is just that essence. There are no other musicians on this recording, just me, my guitar, and my voice. So, if the recording is not what I hoped that it was, I have nobody to blame but myself.

So here I am. I hope that you like what you hear. If you don’t, you’ll know who to blame.

Thanks for listening.
-Todd

Track Name: New Year's Eve
Eight hours away
From a brand new start
And I'm gonna ring it in
On the clock
Making hard-won cash to fritter away on the rent
New Year's Eve
And a whole lot's changed
Things haven't happened in cycles
But octagons
Making hard, sharp turns and I couldn't see what was coming next

And every New Year's Eve is the same
And even those who don't believe invoke his name
"God, make this one better than the last"

Three smokes away
From an empty pack
I would buy a new one
But I've got no cash
So I guess I'll just quit and live a few more miserable years
New Year's Eve
And nothing's changed
Things just haven't gone
The way I've planned
Well I still don't have a job that can pay the rent

And every New Year's Eve is the same
And even those who don't believe invoke his name
"God, make this one better than the last"

Yeah, every New Year's Eve is the same
And even we who don't believe invoke his name...

I've dropped the ball
Track Name: We Made It to the Middle
Looks like we made it to the middle
I never, ever thought
That we would get this far
Never get the chance to solve the bigger riddle
Go a little further and collect more scars

It’s a dead man’s world
Life is just a break
A time in-between
Until we finally get to take
That long, long nap
After years of being awake

Become, once again
A part of the mud

Looks like we made it to the middle
I never, ever thought
That we would get this far
Never get the chance to solve the bigger riddle
Go a little further and collect more scars

The road we left behind
Is littered with mistakes
But we keep moving on
And raising the stakes
And we‘ll use the lessons we've learned
On the roads we've still to take

Breathe it all in
And keep the windows open

Looks like we made it to the middle
I never, ever thought
That we would get this far
Never get the chance to solve the bigger riddle
Go a little further and collect more scars
