To Be Human/To Be Yourself

Today's song that I would like to share comes from my 2017 album Good Night, Fahrenheit. It's called Fireflies, and it's essentially about the beauty of being yourself. 
    Let your spirit glow
    And let your brilliance shine
    Like fireflies in the night...

As an added bonus, here's a slightly psychadelic video that I made of an unplugged acoustic performance of this song in my sunroom a couple of years ago:


And as an added-added bonus, here's a song from my newest album, Embers (2021) called Welcome Back, Jack Kerouac. Tht title comes from a subsection of a paper that I wrote in grad school. The song is essentially about humanism and the role of improvisation in art. In alignment with this underlying theme, I wrote the lyrics in a stream of consciousness. In fact, I scribed this song so quickly that I wasn't even sure if I liked it at first... but it has since grown on me considerably. I hope you like it as well. 

    And who wants this spontaneous prose?
    Nobody knows where it goes
    Our bloodied lips and acid trips
    We think, we drink, therefore we are
    Connected to the universe
    It could be worse...

Enjoy the music. Please share it and add it to your playlists if you like it. As always, thank you for supporting independent art.
