I'm a lyricist looking for musicians to write music to my lyrics.

Howdy. I write. And I listen. Sometimes I can hear the beginning of melody forming but my experience with playing music is limited. I like simple and sometimes unexpected musical lines, and appreciate a balance of boldness and restraint in lyric, tone, and composition. My writing has a closeness to it, with traces of the natural world, emotion, and intimacy. Looking for musicians/singers/collaborators who make me feel like my words are coming out of your mouth and instrument.

Dreams and ambitions:
Writing is often a solitary pursuit, like speaking to an empty room; you pretend that there are people on the other side of the wall, but if there were, you wouldn't have written what you did. Hearing someone else find their own beauty in and expand something that came into the world through my hand is part of why art is meaningful to me. Art is built through relationship-- relationship to the medium, relationship to your collaborators, relationship to yourself. I would like to find some kindred spirits to explore that with together.

Sample lyrics:

When you feel like you've only ever known the storm
and stopped believing that there would be a way through
when you stumble in the rain foll'wing a sun you cannot see
it's no small thing to be loved.


I want a camera, want a canvas, want a keyboard
to capture and create how that I see
And when I print and hang and play my visions
I hope you'll come explore the world with me
