Favorite Lies
This song starts out soft and brooding, but it doesn't stay there. The atmosphere picks up and exchanges itself for heavy riffs, thumping drums, and deep bass grooves, all paired together with passionate, heartfelt, and soaring vocals. This song hits streaming platforms June 14th. lyrics: Everything and nothing, more or less You warm the darkest night with jest How are you close, how are you far I can see your beauty, but I Can’t see your scars I’ll never know your favorite lies I’ll never know The edge of your disguise I’ll never know the way you say goodbye I’ll never know And that’s alright Collected beauty, we watched you grow Now you’re one less mystery I’ll get to know Futile hopes for a goodbye You are the was that made me cry I’ll never know your favorite lies I’ll never know The edge of your disguise I’ll never know the way you say goodbye I’ll never know And that’s alright … credits: Music by Alexander Tichenor, Mason Bellamy, and Ryan Bilikam Lyrics by Alexander Tichenor and Mason Bellamy Mixing and Engineering by Zach Hurst Mastering by Jake Pastor Production, Artwork, and Additional Mixing by Mason Bellamy Recorded at Signal Flow Studio in Cleveland, Ohio more

Traveler's End (Preview) 2025
Hey friends! i know its been so long, but I've been eagerly waiting to give you a glimpse of something very speccial: one of the tracks from my debut album, set to be released in 2025! It's been a labor of love, putting my senses into these 17 original tracks, each one a capsule of emotions and memories. Every chord, every lyric (2 songs with voice collabs), is like a snapshot of a moment in my life, wrapped in melodies that tug at heartstrings and lyrics that echo the whispers of my past AND FUTURE. So let's take on this journey together, back to the places and feelings that shaped us with music as our guide. It's not just an album... its a piece of my heart, reaching out to yours, across time and space.more
