As some of you know I make music. It isn’t professional quality or anything like that, yet I enjoy it a lot and have a great time doing it. For that specific project I am referring to, its a character called Tetsuo. Who I created to tell a story and to use as a moniker to hide and keep it secret. Clearly I haven’t been doing the whole secret thing as of late. Regardless though, the reason for this post is that I have decided to start something new.
That isn’t to say that I am by any means done with the character of Tetsuo. It’s just to say that I also have more stories to tell of my own that might need new names for them to really take flight. Worry not any of you secret closet Tetsuo fans, he will return again (Maybe once I am a better singer). Until then however, I would like to introduce my latest project…
Dexter James Morgan.
The first track is called Slice of Life. If you enjoy instrumental electronic music then this is for you. There is obviously the possibility that some of these tracks will make their way into different incarnations as I work, but for now, enjoy the sweet sweet sounds.
p.s. Yes I am a huge fan of the Dexter book series and Television show.
Hello? Hello from the other side? Hey?
Hi. I suppose its my fault that I haven’t kept you posted in over a month. I also suppose its my fault that there hasn’t been anything new in the way of vlogs or music in maybe even longer… The reality is I have to be honest with you and say that I have been incredibly lazy. I don’t know what my excuse is, maybe its the winter season and the fact that it gets harder to stay motivated during the season. Maybe I could say that I have been uninspired and had a lack of motivation to truly create anything. Perhaps I could even convince you that I have been absolutely crazy busy with work and a social life…
The truth is as I have said before, lethargy has bred complacency and it has become very easy to just not participate in this thing that I have started. I know how it seems. I worked very hard for a full year, creating music, writing a book, posting vlogs and keeping this website up to date, and then I bailed out. That is pretty much how it seems and I get that. However, that isn’t the complete reality. I have been silently working on some things in the background. I’ve been working on freelance writing with pretty steady work the last few months, which does take a bit of my time up. I have also been toying with new ideas for new music. Also, I’ve been writing some short films.
This last one may seem different and new, but any of you that know me personally may know that film is where my heart does lay, no matter how far from that I may truly stand at this moment. I want to create films, and I want to express visions. I have been working on that for the past while as well. I acknolwedge that I have been away from here for too long however, and I will do my best to keep updates rolling in. As well, I would like to share something special soon. Whether it be a new vlog, a new song, or even a new story. I want to make sure that I stay motivated. I need to shake off this laziness and be proactive again, so hopefully this is a return to form.
Lastly, to expose myself with a bit more honesty. I constantly struggle with how I may come across. Whether it be in my videos or my songs or even these posts. I worry that the messages I want to get across will be lost in translation, and I’ll come across as disingenuous. I hope that isn’t the case, but I guess that shouldn’t be a fear that guides me. I can’t help though and look at the artists that I respect most and wonder how they do things without fear and come out on top. Then I think that they must have fear, but if they do, it doesn’t come across.
I’ll try to work on that and while I do, I appreciate your understanding and patience.
As some of you may know. I started making music from time to time. What I had done was set out to create a 6 song EP that I was proud of. I have finished that. Now, there are a lot of changes I still want to make, and only three out of the six songs I actually love. As well I plan on completely changing one of them. I do have to say I am proud of my commitment to the work.
With that being said, I did wind up creating a song I turned out to be quite fond of. I haven’t shared it anywhere yet, and I actually made this on December 30th. I wanted to wait until the album was perfect and I could find a way to release it to you, but I really want you to hear this.
I hope you listen to it, I hope you like it, and I hope that maybe it moves you in a way that music moves me. The song is one that I like, and it completes the story I had tried to tell. The album itself isn’t perfect yet, but I like to think that this song might be pretty close.
I have just put the finishing touches on a new song that I have worked pretty hard on the past couple weeks. I hope that you enjoy it and follow me on soundcloud, or show your friends, or just keep it to yourself and vibe out to it. Let me know what you think, and as usual, thank you for spending your time on me!

Thanks for hanging out and have an amazing holiday season!
I hope everyone is having a wonderful December so far, despite being struck buy a sudden and intense cold bite. I have to say its getting pretty winter-y and I am very excited for the possible cold that is to come.
As I write this I’m procrastinating on a ghost writing free lance project I have to finish by Sunday. Its okay though, I’ve got time, I hope. I think I just need another coffee, and to stop getting distracted by technology. Aka my other projects of a more personal nature.
Anyhow, in the spirit of holiday giving, I would like to share with you a new song I just finished and published. You can find the song in the Tetsuo page, as well as right in this post! I hope you like it, it is intended as the opener song to the album I am currently working on titled ‘From Within’.
Give it a listen, share with your friends, and check back for updates!
