Good morning Our Basement,
“It’s Not Real” is where everything started, about three years ago when I first moved to Toronto. It’s a song about change and how surreal it was to relocate from rural British Columbia to a big city. The first single to be taken from my forthcoming EP1, and I’m happy to share “It’s Not Real” with you today!
I like to produce and write everything myself to establish the mood, lyrics, and core of each song. But I find that if I include other people — send a demo off to one of my friends to add a synth line or a guitar part — the songs get a more rounded, multi-dimensional sound.
Written between 2016-2018 and recorded both at home and Humber Recording Studios, my hope is that some people will listen to EP1 as a cohesive piece. It may only be an EP, but the lyrics and narrative are meaningful and intentional – I hope that can get across to someone.
Thank you for listening. EP1 will be released on October 25th.
