My 2018 New Years Resolution was to bring back an old tradition of making mix CDs for friends as a way to catalog and share music I’m into. As long as I keep it going I’ll post them here, Apple Music coming soon…

SLEEP WELL, JJ

Very sad to hear that Jóhann Jóhannsson has left us. I was introduced to his music on a trip to Iceland in 2007 and it has been a continual source of inspiration for me as a composer ever since. It's unapologetically beautiful and does what music does best: expresses feelings that are beyond words.

DUSK SUN

Quiet and pretty

BLOOD MOON

Dark and drippy
