about

I spent the early parts of the summer of 2013 planting trees in northern British Columbia in order to fund this album. I wrote many of these songs in the pouring rain in my tent. They offered me peace and acted as an escape from the bugs. I hope they can do the same for you.

From the Ground Up describes everything from how i paid for the record, to how i wrote the songs, to how i wish to grow as a person and musician. Like the trees i've planted, my feet are rooted in ideas of growth and hope; to spread my music as high and wide as i can, with the simple goal of supplying the world with what i think are the changes that need to occur.

Track Name: Brother Why
All the kids started running saying brother why'm I feeling this way?
Its the joy of another, its love undercover and we feel this way
All my friends started running their walls come crumbling down
They are worked to the bone, their bodies to the ground

So we hold, we hold on
And we lie with the setting sun
And we say thats its all begun
So we lie with the setting sun

All the kids started running saying brother why'm I feeling this way?
Its the joy of another, its love undercover and we feel this way
All I see is you on the world spinning around
You wanna see like me, get you feet off the ground

So we hold, we hold on
And we lie with the setting sun
And we say thats its all begun
So we lie with the setting sun

All the kids started running, brother why?
All the kids started running, brother why?
Track Name: What A Noisy Place
What a noisy the place the city's become
the pounding of the concrete to the beat of my drum
quiet down, everybody quiet down, quiet down come on

What a noisy place the city's become
the buzzing of machinery has all just begun
so quiet down, everybody quiet down, quiet down come on

What a busy place our world has become
we stack up all the cars reach them up to the sun
so slow down everybody slow down, slow down come on

We gotta quit pretending not to see what our world has become
all the trust has been removed so we'll all just buy guns
he puts his finger on the trigger counts 3-2-1
says that'll be that he's all done

What a quiet place the world will be
when the oceans start to rise and we're all under the sea
you and I swimming far beneath, I suppose this is how fate thinks
that things are supposed to be
Track Name: We Are Not Well
We take it all, leave nothing left for the rest, we are not well
The water rose up to our knees we couldn't talk we couldn't breath, we are not well

But the coast is clear for know

The child's cry drowned out by guns, if nothings said nothings done
See through his eyes, walk in his shoes, you are him, he is you, we are not well

But the coast is clear for know

If you are not, then neither are we
If you will not, then neither will we
If cannot, then neither can we

If you are not, then neither are we (are not well)
If you will not, then neither will we (are not well)
If cannot, then neither can we (are not well)
Track Name: Sea to Sky
look at the day love, look at night
look to you heart love, then your left and your right
look at the wind love, as it blows from afar
look at the moon love ,look at the starts

For you are small
a spec in time
I'll sing ya a song
If you'll sing me rhyme

look at the clouds love, look at the sky
quit looking for death love, or deaths what you'll find
lets look at our world, begin asking why
from the land to the ocean, the sea to the sky

For you are small
A spec in time
I'll sing you a song
If you'll sing me a rhyme

The storm will blow from across the way
the wind will lead us to a better day
the clouds will clear to let the sun say
follow my rays to a better day
the thunder will roar, the rain will pour
the lightning will strike we will scream for more
then the clouds will clear to let the sun say
follow my rays to a better day
