Daydream (idea)

Experimenting with some chords for a song that I'm calling (for now ) Daydream. Working on developing into a full song...

Lost and Found

Original song by Jason Starr, all instruments played by Jason Starr (or in the case of drums, a drum machine programmed by Jason Starr...but the rest of the instruments were good old fashioned actual instruments).  Put to video because...who doesn't love a good star wars lyrics crawl?

Find My Own Way

I wrote this song at both an amazing and a very difficult time in my life as I was dealing with the tragic death of someone very close to me (a cousin who was like a brother to me...the person who taught me to play guitar and shaped me musically...basically my idol). Those who knew me well then (or are family) will probably understand a lot of the imagery in the video (though the song was recorded almost twenty years ago, I just put the video together in 2021). If you care to know the backstory and meaning behind some of the images in more detail, I'm happy to share (maybe I will add more to the description at some point, but let's just say that a fair amount of thought went into the clips...and watching the resulting video wound up being more meaningful and emotional than I thought it would be).

Note, I did not shoot any of the video myself, all of the video clips in this video are from (and free to use with no attribution required).

In memory of David Matthew Tanous (May 12, 1968 - July 17, 1999)

Waste of Time

Waste of Time was a song I wrote back in high school and often performed with my band the Accidentals in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Heavily inspired by R.E.M. (we were a cover band that played a lot of R.E.M. songs). This was our obligatory "teen angst" song. Playing on this recording are Erik Moore (bass) and Rich Thompson (drums). The song was recorded on a Tascam 4-track Porta One (old school!)
