about

"An Experimental Study into the Creation of a Contemporary Folk / Electro Acoustic EP"

The 'Expectation' EP is a map through my creative heart.
Each song is like a coordinate that will lead the way.

Submitted in Partial Fulfillment of a Bachelor of Audio Production, this EP was completed over a 10 week period as the final Creative Project for my degree at SAE.

Track Name: Expectation
Evaporating,
Day Into Night
Anticipating,
Eyes Open Wide
An empty Page,
A silent wish
Sleep deprived,
Reminisce
Intoxicated,
From a heroines kiss

Emancipated,
From the veins of love
Decapitated,
When the race is run
She did it,
He did it,
We do it to ourselves
With greed and need
We feed it to ourselves

Will it ever be enough

We’re under the weight,
Of great,
Expectation
Track Name: Fading
A man wakes at a quarter to five
Morning silence before sunrise
Fifteen minutes alone at home
Before he’s out the door and on the road

A child wakes to birds outside
Jumps out of bed and rubs the sleep from their eyes
Runs down the stairs and into the kitchen
But the chair is empty and a father is missing

Rain on rooftops
Sun through the leaves
Stars in the distance
Like fading memories

Jolted awake to alarm bells ringing
A genuine smile morning has risen
She dresses herself with a delicate vision
There’s a corporate army and a mandatory mission

Rain on rooftops
Sun through the leaves
Stars in the distance
Like fading memories

A walking frame squeaks its way to an empty room
The sun is setting on the afternoon
There’s photos of faces looking more and more like strangers
And a journey eluding like fading perfume

Rain on rooftops
Sun through the leaves
Stars in the distance
Like fading memories

Fading Memories
Track Name: Air Walk
All I need is you
Track Name: Marshmallow Mountains
Marshmallow mountains
City in the clouds
Take a day trip to a parallel universe
Come with me and rest a while
Take a load of and put on your favorite smile

You,
All I need is you

I know a place where dreams are made
So hold out your hand,
Place it in mine
Take a trip with me
Just you wait and see
We’re walking on air
Floating through time

You,
All I need is you

So pack away your zeros
We’re adding ones and twos
No more superheroes
All I need
Is you

You,
All I need is you
Track Name: Vesuvius
Don’t be afraid
Don’t you shed a tear
I’ll always be with you
I will always be near

Frozen in time
Locked to eternity
Our final embrace comforts uncertainty

Eyes are ablaze
Fear on your face
Follow my lead to our resting place

So hold me now
You know I will not run
I’d rather be locked to you than left alone
Look me in the eye
Place your your lips to mine
Let them be my resting place for all of time

Eyes are ablaze
Fear on your face
Follow my lead to our resting place

Vesuvius

Tears on your face
Follow my lead to our resting place

Hold me now
You know I will not run
Locked to you
I wont be left alone

Hold me now
