Sounds I've been hearing in my head in 2022
Chilled EP now available
I don’t really consider myself a musician, but I’ve been always found a joy in sketching random musical ideas ever since I first opened GarageBand way back in 2005. Most times I just tinker, never getting very far and sometimes just scratching a momentary itch.
I don’t have any musical training, but when it comes to sounds and feelings, I’M SOLID.
Under the moniker Curbane, I’m finally releasing a collection of songs that I felt were even close to actually worth sharing.

Waiting in the Wings - A reflection on younger days when I yearned for acknowledgement and pondered what the future might hold while also listening to a hell of a lot of DJ Shadow.
Neon Dreams - Moving through the city at night with purpose, looking for all the excitement and mystery and danger that comes with it.
Dope - Find your favorite person, turn on a red light and sink into the low end. And as a wise man once said, “no pills, no powders, but if it grows in the ground it’s probably OK.”
Chilled - Sunlight passing through barren trees in crisp winter air and warm exhales drifting off behind me as the hard ground crunches gently beneath my feet.
Final Moments - Sitting in a dark room, my mother laying in a bed next to me coming to the end of her journey.
The past year has been the most difficult for me in quite a long time, if not all time. It’s been heartbreaking and confusing and deeply insightful. I witnessed and felt and learned from so much, and I’m still in the process of learning how to use these experiences to move forward.
These songs are one expression of that, and I hope you’ll give them a listen. If you’re feeling generous, buy a copy to download or share with someone you think might enjoy them.
