2005, I was in the midst of one of the biggest transitions of my life. Two years earlier, I had been fired from high power job with a large wireless company. My actions deservedly led to this. By 2005 I was accumulating a large amount of debt, working six jobs, and I found myself forming a jazz trio with my cousin Ben and good friend Tim DeMoss. Over the …

Story

This is an exciting month for me with the release of my second album - Under the Covers. The album features a polished vocal and acoustic guitar driven re-visit of 15 cover songs with a modern mix and splash of fresh synthesizer riffs. The bonus track and first Single, Let's Count Silences, is an original song that blends the vibe of the covers with a taste of what I have in store for the future!

Lyrics

Let’s Count Silences

Music by Ragon Linde

Words by A. Molotkov

 

Verse 1

 

Let’s count silences

Let’s share absence

 

On a vast snow field

Of life’s empty page

Our words

Are grains of sand

 

Chorus

 

And yet

We are a story

That took fourteen billion years

To write itself

 

Verse 2

 

How much sand

Does it take

To defeat entropy?

 

And I wonder

About all that sand

All that snow
