I’ve been playing music since I was 8 years old, and here are some of the songs I’ve written and recorded over the years. I play several different instruments and many songs are completely different styles. You can take a listen below. You can find my album on iTunes and Spotify under the band name “Control Patrol”.

Name Description What I Did MP3 OGG
Whittle Little Figures

A song I wrote about little whittled people and the adventures they have. I didn’t even realize it was almost a reggae song until I listened to it without the vocals.

Yo!

Not sure about this one. I kind of like the parts when it seems to slow down though.

Bad Day Blues

This song was written for a really bad short film I made after college. The film was really bad. I think this song was the best thing that came out of it.

High-school era experiemental audio sludge. Some points of the song just sound like someone opened a big valve labeled “SOUNDS” and let it pour all over the place.
