about

"This is the first great album of 2015 and an astonishing debut of vision and maturity".

Rock Society magazine

"Daybreak has been one big surprise from the day it arrived. Excellent songwriting showing a depth of knowledge well beyond his nineteen years and an ear for an addictive tune combine to deliver an album that pleases on many levels."

Lady Obscure Music Magazine

"This is a refreshing and well put together batch of songs with a modern sound and at its best there are some real gems here... as a whole it is a very listenable work that bears repeated visits."

The Progressive Aspect

"Overall, this is a promising debut from a young artist who is without doubt going to develop, as he refines his own unique style. I look forward to hearing his next release."

DPRP

"There is an English word for beautiful music 'ear candy'. This CD is like a big candy bag filled with lots of goodies... This debut album I cannot get enough."

Maxazine magazine

Track Name: Bleeding Soul
Bach echoes on subway walls
Violin virtuoso completely ignored
No one stops to hear him play

Spoon fed muzak saps the soul
Only listen to what they are told
Manufactured pap the mindless way

The world has a bleeding soul
And it’s all going down
This world has a bleeding soul
And it’s all going down

Jobs are lost down on their luck
Hedge fund winner makes his buck
Counting the green amassing power

Lust, avarice and wanton greed
Billions, more than they need
The minority safe in their glass towers

The world has a bleeding soul
And it’s all going down
This world has a bleeding soul
And it’s all going down

Politicians tongues dripping honey
Hands grabbing vested interest money
Whist poverty claims another life

They stand tall wrapped in the flag
Crying crocodile tears over body bags
Sent on illegal wars the government lies

Child soldier stands holds the gun
Mines and bombs but food for none
Innocence lost as paradise burns

Another famine in far off land
Fast food people don’t understand
Man’s inhumanity to man

The world has a bleeding soul
And it’s all going down
This world has a bleeding soul
And it’s all going down

The world has a bleeding soul
This world has a bleeding soul
Our world has a bleeding soul
Band aid for a bleeding soul?
Track Name: Falling
Standing here I see the world
laid out below in ethereal glow
I touch the moon and sun and sea
one small step and I’ll be free

I can see both the day and night
all of creation is in my sight
One last deep breathe I need to take
the tension here I begin to shake

Night into day
I’m falling away
One small step
And I’m falling away
Night into day
I’m falling away
One small step
And I’m falling away
I’m falling away

Free falling down towards the ground
break through sound I’m spinning around
Through swirling cloud my body falls
towards the earth I’m coming home

Night into day
I’m falling away
One small step
And I’m falling away
Night into day
I’m falling away
One small step
And I’m falling away
I’m falling away
Track Name: Blue Monday
The early hours the black dog slinks
into consciousness denying sleep
Pervading greyness stuporforic fuge
impossible rationale eyes weep

Disassociation from the world
mental castration a lithium state
Zombie shuffle unable to wake
Death in life the chemical fate

Another Blue Monday the weight of the world
upon your shoulders feeling through pain
Feeling such guilt at your part in the plan
you inwardly rage repeat the day again

A worthless existence the smothering embrace
rational dead end your soul must break
Irritation fed by ignorant words
hollow platitudes too much to take

Another Blue Monday and your heart will break
neurological tiredness too much to take
Don’t know the answer to escape the pain
you take the pills keeping you restrained

Trapped inside this cerebral prison
a silent scream inside your mind
You inwardly rage at the despair
rattle mental chains that bind

Twisted thoughts hold you down
confined in this mental cell
Confusion reigns inside your head
unable to speak who could you tell?

Sinking in a black pool of despair
in the safety this self built cell
As the waters now close over
is there no one here to help?

Someone to hold you and understand
heal the pain felt inside
Help exorcise the demons within
a hand to hold and be a guide

Bleeding out your self is fading
feeling sanity fade away
Desperately reaching for some kind of help
to get through another Blue Monday
Track Name: Where Were You?
Where were you
who told me to fly?
Reality’s triple-A
blew me out of the sky
Raise me up
then pull me down
No place for dreams
I hit the ground

Where were you
who said touch the stars?
Cut down to size
before I reached that far
All my dreams
shot in the head
A thousand futures
just left for dead

Where were you?
Where were you?
Where were you?
Where were you?

Where were you
as I stand alone?
Fight my own war
damned to survive
I wish you’d never
painted the sun
Showed me a hope
that’s now all gone

Where were you?
Where were you?
(when I needed you)
Where were you?
Where were you?
(when I needed you)
Track Name: Break of Day
And so we fall down
into the ground
so cold in here

And run away
and hide till the break of day
And run away
and hide till the break of day

And so we fall down
fall through the ground
so free out here

And run away
and hide till the break of day
And run away
and hide till the break of day
Track Name: Seasons
Winter sunrise bathes the mist
white blanket on fields that frost has kissed
Raindrops fall in a spring shower
translucent angels dancing on a flower

Seasons come and seasons go
here I stand all alone
Seasons come and seasons go
forgotten here heart of stone

Butterfly’s flight on a summer breeze
gossamer touch is all we need
The hairline patterns on an autumn leaf
amber and gold beauty so brief

Seasons come and seasons go
here I stand all alone
Seasons come and seasons go
forgotten here heart of stone

On a cold November morn
a moments silence from those who are born
Red flowers laid at my feet
remembrance of sacrifice complete

Seasons come and seasons go,
for one short moment I'm not alone...
Track Name: The Other Me
Fingers touch the frosted glass
drawing patterns in the mist
Coldness numbing finger tips
mirrored lives that co-exist

Hollow eyes their mocking stare
veil within their hidden deceit
What do they know? I cannot say
knowledge is so incomplete

The Man in the Mirror
looks back at me
The Man in the Mirror
that’s all I see
A mirrored image
my reflected soul
The Man in the Mirror
who’s in control?

Bloodied shards reflection smashed
what the hell do they signify?
Have I escaped the reflected curse?
a thousand faces a mirrored lie

The Man in the Mirror
looks back at me
The Man in the Mirror
that’s all I see
A mirrored image
my reflected soul
The Man in the Mirror
who’s in control?

Tears leak from bloodshot eyes
exhaustion lines no time to rest
Need to regain control again
before insanity is manifest

Replicating the gaze again
wake to expose veracity
Reverse imitation mocking me
questioning my mental capacity

The Man in the Mirror
looks back at me
The Man in the Mirror
is the monster in me?
A mirrored image
my reflected soul
The Man in the Mirror
am I losing control?
Track Name: Where Is My Mind? (CD only bonus track)
With your feet on the air
and your head on the ground
Try this trick and spin it
yeah

Your head will collapse
but there's nothing in it
And you'll ask yourself

Where is my mind?
Where is my mind?
Where is my mind?

Way out there in the water
see it swimming

I was swimming in the Caribbean
animals were hiding behind the rocks
Except the little fish
but they told me
he swears
Tryin' to talk to me
to me
to me

Where is my mind?
Where is my mind?
Where is my mind?

Way out there in the water
see it swimming
Track Name: Goodbye
Twenty four miles to planet Earth
do I do this
to prove my worth?
Ten minutes is all it takes
praying Lord
please no mistakes

Goodbye...
