Erase You demos

"Erase you" is by far one of the most personal songs I've ever written. In the verses I talk about getting home from LA back to NYC. Here is the demo of the song from the night I wrote it on my synthesizer at home the morning after getting back from LA. I ended up re-writing the chorus with my friend, producer Jordan Palmer, in June. Then, on a freezing cold night in December coming back from a H.E.R. concert I wrote what is now the final chorus of "Erase You". Check out these demos and let me know what you think.



Now listen to the final version! Artwork by Cortney Armitage.

Regret - Cortney Armitage Photo session

Here are some outtakes from the third emotion photo shoot with Cortney Armitage. The concept for these photos represented regret in a vulnerable way. We wanted to capture the idea of cleansing yourself of something you regret doing. A moment where you are truly alone with your thoughts. The final product ended up nailing the vision and I have to credit that to Cortney because this was fairly dificult for me to take seriously.

Exclusive Vault Release: Wasted Days

I've decided to start releasing music and additional collaborative art through the Raw Emotions Vault. There are songs that I love and mean so much, but haven't quite found a home, or haven't been produced yet but were written during the month of a specific emotion. The same is true for photos, videos, essays, animation treatments, designs that never get to see the light of day but have so much character. Creating and sharing is the core of the Raw Emotions project, the vault is allowing me to take that even further. It's imperative to me that EVERYTHING is heard, felt and seen during this Raw Emotions project. The vault is a safe space for art to be shared every week, and sometimes even more often than that.

This first Vault only release is called Wasted Days. I wrote it with one of my best friends, Caroline Pennell, and always regretted never putting it out. Figured it was only right I revisited that regret this month and finally let it out into the Raw Emotions world.
