"Hollow " - Backstory and Lyrics – Releasing 16 November 2022   

“Hollow” was inspired from a relationship breakup, where my partner at the time decided to end it. I was completely shocked and blindsided even though it was an amicable parting of ways. Was feeling stunned and rocked at the time. Thinking back on those feelings and the situation, I decided to write a song about it and how I felt at the time. It was a hollow feeling. Guess it is a topic that most people can relate to, so here it is “Hollow”. 

It was recorded on the Gold Coast with the same awesome team involved in all my releases to date, Blair Hamilton (Drums), Lawson Hamilton (Bass), Dylan Smith (Producer/Mix Engineer) and Paul Blakey 12th & Vine Post (Mastering Engineer). It was recorded with two other singles which I will release in February and April 2023. 

 “Hollow” - Lyrics   

Pacing all around my bedroom 

Hoping that you don't see me cry 

You caught me at the worst time 

You always do, you know it’s true 

(That I'm just not sinking it in) 

Tell me what's the point of you leaving? 

And you oughta know I'm not sleeping at all tonight 

I guess, that you have your reasons 

And that's fair, but darling I mean it 

Darling I mean it 

Darling I mean it 

Darling I mean it 

I've overstayed my welcome 

I can feel all the tension rise 

And I was thinking 

Maybe tonight we can set our sails in the night 

(I'm drowning) 

Tell me what's the point of you leaving? 

And you oughta know I'm not sleeping at all tonight 

I guess, that you have your reasons 

And that's fair, but darling I mean it 

Tell me what you're meaning, if it all sounds fair 

Tell me what you're meaning, if it all sounds fair 

Tell me what you're meaning, if it all sounds fair 

Tell me what you're meaning, if it all sounds fair 

Tell me what's the point of you leaving? (leaving) 

And you oughta know I'm not sleeping at all tonight 

I guess, that you have your reasons 

And that's fair, but darling I mean it 

Darling I mean it 

Darling I mean it

"Neverland " - Backstory and Lyrics – Released 12 August 2022  

“Neverland” is a lot more upbeat than my previous releases and a transition in my sound that included "Silk Dress" . It has massive pop-punk vibes flowing through, which was music that inspired me as a young kid. I took some inspiration from the classic book, "Where The Wild Things Are", in the sense of having a place to go if the world seems too much at times. 

“Neverland” is a place in my mind which is an oasis and retreat from the daily challenges of life, particularly the current world turmoil and instability. The song is for all those marginalised people out there, that don't quite fit in and get hassled in their day to day lives. Hence the line in the song "Planet Earth is not my friend". not a great place at times with some people not being particularly nice to others. "Neverland" is dedicated to all those marginalised creative & non creative cool people out there who get a hard time most days. So for all you “outcasts” out there this this song is for you! 

 “Neverland” - Lyrics  

I found myself a secret hiding place where the wild things are 

And although this may, it may feel very strange I still call it home 

It's a place where I can be myself 

Free from everybody else (and their opinions) 

So go and say it like you mean it 

Go on and say it with your chest 

Planet Earth is not my friend 

So you can find me in Neverland 

Growing up, school it really sucked it was such a drag 

Every day, it always felt the same, nothing ever changed 

I never was athletic, was far from academic 

I wish I was though, it's such a shame 

All the kids they used to pick on me 

Maybe they were right coz I was such a dweeb 

So go and say it like you mean it 

Go on and say it with your chest 

Planet Earth is not my friend 

So you can find me in Neverland 

I never really found a place where Everything felt right everything was calm and 

I never really found a place where I belong 

But today I guess I found a way 

Planet earth’s a funny place 

It’s not for everyone 

If you're an outcast just like me 

Then this is your new home and this is your anthem 

So go and say it like you mean it 

Go on and say it with your chest 

Planet Earth is not my friend 

So you can find me in Neverland 

you can find me in Neverland 

You can find me in Neverland 

You can find me in Neverland

"Silk Dress" - Backstory and Lyrics - Released 24 February 2022 

“Silk Dress” was inspired by me recently reflecting on being a 5-year-old belting out Avril Lavigne’s “Skater Boy” on SingStar. I wanted to be a musician after hearing that track. She was my Celebrity Crush! At the time I wanted to play in a band with her. So, I decided to write a song about it. It is based around a young musician who aspires to being a successful artist making it on the charts. She embraces the lifestyle and dedicates her life to her music. If follows a similar theme to my recent song “Boots” in pursuing your dreams and doing the things you want to do in your life. So here's "Silk Dress".

“Silk Dress” - Lyrics 

She put a silk dress on today 

Applied a fresh new coat of paint 

And reassured to herself that she's doing okay 

She's got those cherry blossom eyes 

A candid smirk to makes things right 

I swear to God that she is one of a kind 

She plays the bass when I play guitar 

I'll write a hook so she can sing along 

We'll dance to the beat and party so hard 

She will not go home till she hits the charts 

She makes the most out of each day 

By pushing a pen to the page 

And let her thoughts run wild not putting them to waste 

She's always seemed so headstrong 

Even when life it got so dark 

She'd power through it all no she would never stop 

She plays the bass when I play guitar 

I'll write a hook so she can sing along 

We'll dance to the beat and party so hard 

She will not go home till she hits the charts 

*Guitar Solo* 8 bars 

When I'm at my worst, yeah she'll be there to lift the curse and 

Take away the hurt, she'll carry me to nirvana 

I may not have the words to say exactly how I'm feeling 

But honestly to me you'll always be the light into my dark, my harmony 

She plays the bass, I play guitar 

I'll write a hook, she'll sing along 

She plays the bass when I play guitar 

I'll write a hook so she can sing along 

We'll dance to the beat and party so hard 

She will not go home till she hits the charts 

She plays the bass when I play guitar 

I'll write a hook so she can sing along 

We'll dance to the beat and party so hard 

She will not go home till she hits the charts

"Boots" - Backstory and Lyrics - Released 1 Dec 2021

The underlying message of Boots is about life choices and pursuing your dreams with gusto. Living a life with no regrets. I am like everyone and have periods of self-doubt and that feeling of being paralysed in not pursuing my goals. "Boots" is all about overcoming your own reservations and making the first steps in achieving your goals in life. No matter how big a goal it is. Figure we are all on borrowed time, so we may as well do the things we dream of doing and turn those dreams into reality. Whether that succeeds or not, it doesn’t really matter. Its about having a crack and not looking back with regret of wonder what if !

So …… I wrote a song about it called “Boots”. 

"Boots" - Lyrics 

We've all got pressures, that we deal on the daily 

We've all got problems, that we just try to hide behind 

And now the fact of the matter, is that the days just keep on racing I've had enough of the chatter, 

No I won't be left behind 

But the world it keeps on turning 

And the clock it just won't stop I better get my shit together 

Before my time is finished up 

 Coz I've got big boots to fill 

So don't you try and stop me 

Chasing after what is destined 

But I know you probably will 

No I cannot waste my time 

Coz you know I have got these boots to fill 

And you know I will, and you know I will 

We've all got issues, some things that need a little tweaking 

We've all got secrets, to fabricate all of our lies 

There's always so much stress for me to do my best 

Sometimes it seems too much to handle 

But I'll put my best foot forward 

And best believe this time I won't be looking back 

As the world it keeps on turning 

And the minute hand won't stop It's time to get my shit together 

Before my heart begins to pop 

Coz I've got big boots to fill So don't you try and stop me 

Chasing after what is destined But I know you probably will 

No I cannot waste my time 

Coz you know I have got these boots to fill 

And you know I will, and you know I will 

*Solo* 

But the world it keeps on turning 

And the clock it just won't stop I better get my shit together 

Before my time is finished up 

Coz I've got big boots to fill 

So don't you try and stop me 

Chasing after what is destined 

But I know you probably will 

No I cannot waste my time Coz you know I have got these boots to fill 

And you know I will, and you know I will 

(Coz I've got big boots to fill) 

 (Yeah I've got big boots to fill) 

And you know I will, and you know I will 

(Coz I've got big boots to fill) 

(Yeah I've got big boots to fill) 

And you know I will, you damn well know I will 

(Coz I've got big boots to fill) 

(Yeah I've got big boots to fill) 

And you know I will, and you know I will 

 (Coz I've got big boots to fill) 

 (Yeah I've got big boots to fill) 

 And you know I will, and you know I will

“Mr Nightowl” – Backstory and Lyrics – Released 15 July 2021 

“Mr Nightowl” is about an insomniac who struggles to get to sleep with the music in his/her brain. This is my pain at times when I need to finish off writing a song and I cant get to sleep because of unfinished business. End of the day it applies to all of us when you have something on your mind they can’t shake off until it is done. 
Introducing “Mr Nightowl” 

“Mr Nightowl” - Lyrics 

Laying alone in my bed again 

These four walls just want me dead 

At least it's how it's starting to seem 

These thoughts of mine aren't filled with dread 

They're melodies boxed in my head 

I really need to catch up on sleep 

One more song, one song is all I need 

To move along, to try and catch a dream 

I need to break the cycle 

In hope to put my mind at ease 

Mr. Nightowl is watching over 

But he won't get the best of me 

I try every night, but nothing is alright 

It is just meant to be? 

These pills don't settle right 

My mind's in a constant fight 

I'm just looking for relief 

Coz night time's a struggle 

When you're caught in a bubble 

And there's no way of getting out 

I need reassurance 

Or just some kind of motif 

Just to know that I'm not alone 

One more song, one song is all I need 

To move along, to try and catch a dream 

I need to break the cycle 

In hope to put my mind at ease 

Mr. Nightowl is watching over 

But he won't get the best of me 

*Guitar Solo* 

Chorus x2

“Stone Cold Killer” – Backstory &  Lyrics – Released 25 March 2021 

The underlying message of the song is the adverse legacy and consequences of making bad decisions in the heat of the moment. Decisions that affect not only you as an individual but your family and friends along with the victims of violence. In this song an innocent bystander a mother confronts the criminal during a robbery which leads to her sudden and unnecessary death. All through a split-second decision which ruins many lives and something he must live with for the rest of his life. The video directed and filmed by Trevor Worden takes the message to another level where the perpetrator initially glorifies his deed but soon realises the enormity of the situation and long-standing consequences of his act. 

“Stone Cold Killer” - Lyrics 

There was a man by the window, he was waiting for me 

He wore a mask over his face, to hide his identity 

And now I should've seen it coming from a mile away 

How could I be so foolish, how did I let him get away? 

He made his way to the front door, with a pistol in his hand 

He fired 3 shots into the air, and started barking his commands 

"I don't wanna have to hurt you, so do exactly what I say. 

Just put the money into this bag, so that I can get away". 

He was a stone cold killer 

How could he ever look into a mirror? 

And come to terms with it 

He'll never be the same 

He'll take this to the grave 

A stone cold killer, how did he get away? 

There was a lady standing in the back, she was pushing 'round a pram 

Yeah she was minding her business, right until she heard the man 

She said "What the hell you thinking, do you think you have the right, 

To put a gun right up to his head, and put a threat upon his life? 

He then turned around, their eyes they met 

Little did she know he saw red 

He took the gun right off his head 

And took his aim right at her chest 

She trembled as the bullets left 

The chambers empty now she's dead 

The blood it poured on the cement 

His life had changed it's filled with dread 

Ah ah ah, ahhh ah, ahhh ah 

Ah ah ah, ahhh ah, ahhh ah 

He was a stone cold killer 

How could he ever look into a mirror? 

And come to terms with it 

He'll never be the same 

He'll take this to the grave 

A stone cold killer, how did he get away? 

A stone cold killer 

How could he ever look into a mirror? 

And come to terms with it 

He'll never be the same 

He'll take this to the grave 

A stone cold killer, how did he get away? 

Ah ah ah, ahhh ah, ahhh ah 

Ah ah ah, ahhh ah, ahhh ah 

That's all he will remain
