Me and Chris' take on the classic, Moon River. 


Stars

In the summer of 2016, my friend, Christopher Cortes, and I wrote this song called "Stars." The premise of this song centers around the idea of grieving someone's absence, aching for someone's presence, and most importantly, knowing that one will be able see that someone again, in one life or another.

Although you may be unable to tangibly be with someone at a certain point in time, looking at the stars can remind you of that special someone; especially if that person is among the stars, so to speak, this emotional phenomenon can make you feel closer to them. 


I'd Rather Go Blind (Cover)

In July 2013, I volunteered to perform at the Victoria Gardens Nursing Home. I compiled a list of 12 of my favorite, classic songs by artists I admire, those whom include Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole, Tony Bennett, Frank Sinatra, and of course, Etta James. Here is a glimpse of my experience at Victoria Gardens Nursing Home singing Etta James' I'd Rather Go Blind. 


Lay Me Down (Cover)

Here is my version of Sam Smith's song, Lay Me Down. 


More Than Lately (Original)

For my high school Phoenix Independent Study Project in 2014, I decided to write a melodramatic song lyric here and there. Here is a live version of one of the four songs I wrote.

Whether it be unrequited love or yearning for relational fulfillment, More Than Lately definitely speaks to the sentiment of wanting to be looked at in a different light by someone who is meaningful to you - to "be more" than what one may be at present. 


Remember (Original)

For my high school Phoenix Independent Study Project in 2014, I decided to write a melodramatic song lyric here and there. Here is a live version of one of the four songs I wrote.

Remember embodies the emotional dissonance one may feel after breaking ties with someone. It clings to the notion of wanting someone to "remember" to not forget about shared memories. 


Breeze (Original)

For my high school Phoenix Independent Study Project in 2014, I decided to write a melodramatic song lyric here and there. Here is a live version of one of the four songs I wrote.

Breeze centers on the adrenaline of a summer romance, focusing on how intimacy manifests within pockets of time. This concept is similar to cyclical patterns of summer weather: the heat and bustle during the day settles down and dissolves at night into a calmer state that is reminiscent of a cool "breeze," a state or pocket of time that prompts oneself to engage in catharsis from the day's activities. Breeze is about giving oneself room to breathe, a chance to revel in the calm, and possibly connect with someone who makes you feel whole. 


Back to You (Original)

For my high school Phoenix Independent Study Project in 2014, I decided to write a melodramatic song lyric here and there. Here is a live version of one of the four songs I wrote.

Back to You fixates on the feeling of being spiritually and physically drawn to someone and explores the notion of wanting to harvest relational intimacy.
