I haven’t had a drink since November 1, 2018. I captured this song during a particularly lucid rumination on how I was feeling: Inspired. Ceasing the destruction of myself and becoming much more responsive to inspiration has begun to instill a sense this feeling is worth sharing.
Wearing my 80s production and Bowie influence on my sleeve, I present this work.
I happened upon a really infectious beat I created a couple of years ago and, after an enjoyable session, pulled a catchy melody from the universe. As fate would have it, I decided to listen to The Doors for the heck of it, and realized what I had with this song is a Doors-influenced piece of classic rock with a twist of contemporary production. And so, On Fire was born. It was fun to channel a bit of Jim Morrison, walking the line between psychedelic and Sinatra in vocal and lyrical styling. Yep, looks pretentious to have typed that out loud.
The third installment of liner notes for my 2018 album, Syntherference. Featuring In-Fashion Passion (a critique of the oft-abused social media soapbox), and Learn How To Learn (possibly the meaning of life).
It tickles me to see the word “spelunk,” and equally so that I managed to shoehorn it into the nonsensical lyrics of the song, “Syntherference.” This is the 2nd installment of liner notes from my 2018 album Syntherference.
