Everyone Is a Moon

Hi! On Friday, March 10, 2023, I will be releasing a new 4-song EP titled Everyone Is a Moon.

Track listing:

  1. The Fiction of Closure
  2. Nice to Be Needed
  3. Moonbeams
  4. A Darkness Follows

Originally this was going to be the title for my last album, but Carry the Wounds felt more appropriate for that one. These four songs were originally going to be on that album as well, but some newer ones, again, felt more appropriate for that release.

For anyone wondering, the title comes from a Mark Twain quote:

“Everyone is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody.”

To me, that quote speaks to the essence of authenticity. I have a history of coming across as guarded, even when I wasn’t trying to be. So the past eight-ish years or so, I have made conscious efforts to be more vulnerable and live my authenticity. And one thing I can say – even while coming across as guarded in relationships or social situations, my music has always explored deeply personal emotions. That “dark side,” as Mark Twain called it, has been there, out in public, just in musical form.

Everyone Is a Moon will be on all major streaming platforms March 10.
