about

The thing I love more about music is not just the fact that lyrics feel like a conversation with the listener, but you get to write about anything. After all, music grows, when you change things up or add something new to the table, and that includes what to write about.

Awkward Stage brings two interesting things to the table. One of which is songs written about anything from the lack of a band and overcoming shyness through music ("Introduction") to a hunger to want to make something beautiful, but constantly wondering if you have the confidence or talent to do so ("Lightning In a Bottle").

Another thing I brought is boyish, soft, and direct vocals.

One theory I seems to have about music is that anyone who tries to make things perfect on the first try is always going to have to deal with sophomore slumps or trying to keep their records clean, leading them to struggle with their crown as the next big thing. Ignoring such act on music, Awkward Stage takes the backwards route and displays all of the flaws, as well as the good stuff, to document him improving on his craft.

If you like Jeffrey Lewis, Sebadoh, or experimental era (smog), you might enjoy Awkward Stage. If you basically like lo-fi, you will enjoy.

Track Name: Introduction
I used to fear the blemishes that formed
I was taught not to make mistakes since I was born
That includes every curve that my voice lacks
But I'm not asking to be cut some slack

I wrote most of this for therapy
And mostly because no one would write them for me
So, if you please, listen throug has I run
Through a conversation with no one

I used to be a very quiet man
In fact, now that I think about it, I pretty much still am
So, if you please, listen as I run
Through a conversation with no one.
Track Name: Persistance
If you are in love with me
Let me hide the cutlery
In case we are falling out

If we have a connection
Don't grit your teeth
If I respond without notice to the failures

Refrain: It happens all too often

But there is nothing wrong with persistence
Unless you managed to take it too far
But we won't take it far, trust me

We seem to click like ever
Trust me to keep it together
If it is meant to be

If we last this far
Don't mention the word "forever"
And we just might go it longer

Refrain: It happens all too often

But there is nothing wrong with persistence
Unless you managed to take it too far
But we won't take it far, wont we?

Forever is the f word that makes you sound like a sailor
Once it's uttered, the connection's a failure

But there is nothing wrong with persistence
Unless you managed to take it too far
But we won't take it far, trust me
