about

Every composer, and indeed every artist in general, faces constant rejection. In my case, the most common form of that is in writing demos or pitches in an effort to work on a given project, only to be told no. The reasons almost always have nothing to do with me specifically, yet it's tempting to take it personally. To equate rejection with failure.

As my career has gone on though, it dawned on me that rejections were actually a much better measure of opportunity. And looking back, I realized just how many opportunities I've had! It didn't matter that so many didn't work out.

100% of the music on this album was bound for the trash. Most of it is rejected pitches, but a few are also cues for cancelled projects and there's even some from projects I was fired from mid-way through.

In the end, I hope you enjoy it and that it's a reminder that rejection isn't defeat, but actually strangely fun and empowering.

Track Name: The Storm
The dark horizon born anew
Tonight again her shadows brew
Coming nearer
Her claw flashing jagged in the sky

And we hold, we hold for morning

She hammers angry on our door
Our towers rattle in the roar
Of her fury
Our calls are drowned

In the howling of the storm

But we hold, we hold for morning

For we know when the sun returns
Weary we’ll wander
Save what we can from what remains

Hold through the angry night
Hold for the morning light
Hold to each other till the storm is gone
What night will take again
We will remake again
Hold to each other till the rising sun


The dark horizon born anew
Yet more brutal work to do
Stand firm ‘gainst the hurricane again

We hold, we hold for morning
We hold, we hold for morning
We hold, we hold for morning
We hold, we hold for morning
