This is an acoustic demo version of my song Bend of the Trees which I will be re recording with cello and lapsteel for my upcoming full length record in 2016. I wrote this while living in a caravan in Mecklenburg Vorpommern, Eastern Germany inspired by nature. I hope you like it and feel free to donate something if you want to support independent music. Thank you. :)




a trick of winter

when the snow melts

sleeping green leaves awake

waiting in the dirt

there is beauty

in the bend of the trees

elegant wooden limbs and fingers much like ours

stretch up to the sky


an ancient longing

to be understood

find our place

in harmony

but most of us don't know what we've lost

plugged into a programmable world

where we sell our souls

and breath through screens

living and loving through buttons and keys


and the birds are singing, can you hear them

can you hear them, la da da

they know this magic, they will not forget

because they need to, la da da

leave the city

shake off the concrete dust to remember yourself

to remember yourself, la da da, la da da, la da da

remember yourself


i get lost in the curve

of the hills

sticky mud anchors me

to the earth

because my boots are too big

they stop me

from flying

maybe if i had bare feet

it could be different


between branches

the lazy breeze

sings a kind of sleepy song

clearing my lungs and chest

so i can find my voice again

and the frozen river

is coming undone
