about

GO DEEP is the third entry in what I call my “California Trilogy,” my third LP release in three years, all inspired by life on the West Coast. My previous two releases, IN BETWEEN THE SPACES (2017) and LOST ANGELES (2018), made numerous “Best of” lists both years and continue to enjoy airplay all over the world.

GO DEEP is my most ambitious collection of original, hard-hitting power pop and rock to date. Three tracks were produced by top Bay Area producer, Scott Llamas—who also mastered all tracks—with the others produced and mixed by me.

The CD of this record is also available on Kool Kat Records, and comes with a free CD copy of 10 COVERS, also available here on Bandcamp. You can get those two CDs from Kool Kat here:

Track Name: The One that Got Away
It's been a long time since I’ve seen you
It's bringing back our yesterdays
We're different people but it feels so new
Let's take a chance and find our way

All we need is some more time
to find the best of who we are
All I want right now is you
the one that got away

Take my hand, let’s take a spin, it might a bumpy ride
Don’t bother asking where we're going
It's so clear, you are the one, you always seemed to get me
I want this time to last forever

All we need is some more time
to find the best of who we are
All I want right now is you
the one that got away

It's so good when we're together
So how'd we ever drift apart
We found a new life that was better
But there's a big hole in my heart

We should’ve ended up in paradise
It took us all these years to realize

All we need is some more time
to find the best of who we are
All I want right now is you
the one that got away

All we need is some more time (the one that got away)
All we need is some more time (the one that got away)
All we need is some more time (the one that got away)
with the one that got away
Track Name: If You Leave Me
Our love had started out so innocent
The best of times that’s ever been
Making sweet love every day and every night
Time passed now something isn’t right

I hear you say that I’m inflexible
I know I’ve gained a little weight
You want to try new things when I’m averse to change (I know what I like)
Old habits die hard or they break

But if you leave me I would die

I can’t remember when your feelings changed
You got so distant over time
I’ve tried so hard to give you everything you want
I feel alone and boys don’t cry

I feel you drifting somewhere far away
I know there’s things you’ll probably never say
It breaks my heart to think you’ll soon be out of sight
I wish you’d tell me I was right

‘Cuz if you leave me I would die
‘Cuz if you leave me I would die

I feel you drifting somewhere far away
I know there’s things you’ll probably never say
It breaks my heart to think you’ll soon be out of sight
I wish you’d tell me I was right

‘Cuz if you leave me I would die
‘Cuz if you leave me I would die
‘Cuz if you leave me I would die
Track Name: Next to Me
You been the only one for me
I was so blind, you made me see
Sing along in harmony
When you are next to me

Peanut butter to my jam
Feel alive just holding hands
Please tell me I’m your man
When you are next to me

I’m in the zone
I love you so
I feel at home
When you are next to me

I’ll take a stand
I’ll take command
I’ll be your man
when you are next to me

You’re the one that made me see
Mary Jane to my Spidey
Don’t ever set me free
when you are next to me

When I watch you coming home
I always hope that you’re alone
The truth I’ve always known
is when you are next to me

I’m in the zone
I love you so
I feel at home
When you are next to me

I’ll take a stand
I’ll take command
I’ll be your man
when you are next to me

You are my soul
I lose control
My peace is whole
when you are next to me

I can’t let go
I need you so
Please never go
when you are next to me
Track Name: Beware of God
You won't find him in the morning
bright on the screen of your TV
And he won't help you in the evening
to buy you everything you see

You won't find him giving you love
behind the eyes of your new pet
You won't find him in computers
the ghost behind your Internet


But if you look around the corner
and stand to face your very soul
You'll find the words in your reflection
Of stories you've already told...

Beware of God

You won't find him in a steeple
Forgiving you for all your sins
You won't find him in your lover
your brother, or your next of kin

But if you look around the corner
and stand to face your very soul
You'll find the words in your reflection
Of stories you've already told...

He won't help you make a million
when there is so much suffering
You won't find him at a rock show
So pay attention when we sing...
Track Name: Keanu Reeves
A normal dude who seems immortal
I saw him first in River’s Edge
BFFs with Crispin Glover
He talked his little bro off the ledge

He shot to fame back in the ‘90s
In Bill and Ted and Idaho
Infiltrated a surf gang led by Pat Swayze
He had him cuffed, but let him go
He prolly drowned, but we don’t know

I wanna be like Keanu Reeves  (fly, fight)
so cool in any situation
His roles and range keep getting better
A body of work to heal all nations

I thought that Speed was entertaining
But it couldn’t compare to what came next
When Neo battled the computers
The original Matrix is still the best

Bullet time just made you stronger
You even nailed it as Klaatu
But you really brought it when you played John Wick
Always giving back to your whole crew
Even in real life, you know what to do
Track Name: Loneliness
When you left / I never made another compromise
Broke apart / both of us just wanted separate lives
No regrets / everything I did, I did for you
Here’s the thing / I never thought I’d be here missing you

Loneliness / living with my shadow for so long
Far away / how I’ve felt forever since you gone
I’m OK / What I tell myself when you’re away
Anything / What I’d do to get you back and stay

After you / I found another way to live my life
Born again / free to be myself and hit my stride
Now I’m lost / I blame you for the wreck that I’ve become
Torn apart / missing who I was when we were one

Loneliness / living with my shadow for so long
Far away / how I’ve felt forever since you gone
I’m OK / What I tell myself when you’re away
Anything / What I’d do to get you back and stay

I never meant to let you go
I never shoulda let us drift apart
I miss you more than you will ever know
I never told you that you broke my heart

Loneliness / living with my shadow for so long
Far away / how I’ve felt forever since you gone
I’m OK / What I tell myself when you’re away
Anything / What I’d do to get you back and stay

Loneliness
Loneliness
Loneliness
What I’d do to get you back and stay
Track Name: Lost and Found
Forgot about the day we met
Forgot you’d always be the best that I could get
Forgot about the night you left
Forgot about the times that we said we’d never forget

Now here we are in lost and found
It’s been so long but now we’re homeward bound

We lost some time, I’m not sure when
I never thought that I would / see you again
We played the game but quit too soon
We never found the one ‘cause it was always me and you

Now that we’re here where should we go?
We’ll find our way to things that we / couldn’t know
Go on and tell me how you been
I’ll keep you in my sights and I won’t let go again

Now here we are in lost and found
It’s been so long but now we’re homeward bound

We lost some time, I’m not sure when
I never thought that I would / see you again
We played the game but quit too soon
We never found the one ‘cause it was always me and you

Now here we are in lost and found
It’s been so long but now we’re homeward bound

We lost some time, I’m not sure when
I never thought that I would / see you again
We played the game but quit too soon
We never found the one ‘cause it was always me and you

I felt so lost but now I’m found
I felt so lost but now I’m found
I felt so lost but now I’m found
I felt so lost but now I’m found
Track Name: Acts of God
What the hell is going on
The sky is gray and I found ashes on my car
Everything I knew is gone
Heard sirens in the night but now they sound so far

Who’s gonna save us from the fires
The trees are black and all the roads have burned away
Please drive around the fallen wires
I’m getting tired and I don’t know where we’ll stay

The flames were right outside our door
I grabbed the silverware and photos off the wall
I couldn’t carry anymore
Don’t worry I won’t let the neighbors take it all

Who’s gonna save us from the fires
The trees are black and all the roads have burned away
Please drive around the fallen wires
I’m getting tired and I don’t know where we’ll stay

I could blame the politicians
We could call it acts of god
Somebody better have an answer
‘Cause everything I knew is gone

Who’s gonna save us from the fires
The trees are black and all the roads have burned away
Please drive around the fallen wires
I’m getting tired but I don’t know where we’ll stay

I’m getting tired but I don’t know where we’ll stay
I’m getting tired but I don’t know where we’ll stay
I’m getting tired but I don’t know where we’ll stay
Track Name: Lonely Old Man
I been called a loner
I live with my mother, too
And though I'm not dying
I find myself crying
over my life

I don't have a girl
I usually take the bus
At minimum wage
I pocket my change
and save for a Bug

Oh God in Heaven strike me down
before I take a life

Help me understand
be a man
and generally be all right

Cos I don't want to be no incontinent lonely old man
Sitting home, in a dome
waiting for my time to go

I think of my future
Between the good reruns
And I often wonder
what kind of a blunder
my parents made
Track Name: Cowboy Life
Well the sun went down
on our way of life
Big-city living
With its smoggy skies

No time to think
No time to dream
And the days get busier
I wonder what it means

I wanna cowboy life
with my frontier wife
I wanna place to settle down
and build a night campfire

I wanna see you smile
I wanna rest a while
I want the stream to wash away
The memories and miles

Let’s pack our bags
It’s time to say goodbye
We’re heading down that dusty road
To find a clear blue sky

We’ll find a plot of land
We’ll stake a modest claim
And this I promise you
We’ll never the same

It’s getting harder every night to see the stars
I never knew the life we chose could be this hard
I wonder where we find the answers
Wonder where we’re free to roam
I wonder where on god’s green earth it feels like home

I wanna cowboy life
with my frontier wife
I wanna place to settle down
and build a night campfire

I wanna see you smile
I wanna rest a while
I want the stream to wash away
The memories and miles

We built the cabin of our dreams
Looked up at skies we’d never seen
We found the time and space to finally find our way
It’s led me back to you today…

I wanna cowboy life
with my frontier wife
I wanna place to settle down
and build a night campfire

I wanna see you smile
I wanna rest a while
I want the stream to wash away
The memories and miles
Track Name: Lost and Found (mellow)
Forgot about the day we met
Forgot you’d always be the best that I could get
Forgot about the night you left
Forgot about the times that we said we’d never forget

Now here we are in lost and found
It’s been so long but now we’re homeward bound

We lost some time, I’m not sure when
I never thought that I would / see you again
We played the game but quit too soon
We never found the one ‘cause it was always me and you

Now that we’re here where should we go?
We’ll find our way to things that we / couldn’t know
Go on and tell me how you been
I’ll keep you in my sights and I won’t let go again

Now here we are in lost and found
It’s been so long but now we’re homeward bound

We lost some time, I’m not sure when
I never thought that I would / see you again
We played the game but quit too soon
We never found the one ‘cause it was always me and you

Now here we are in lost and found
It’s been so long but now we’re homeward bound

We lost some time, I’m not sure when
I never thought that I would / see you again
We played the game but quit too soon
We never found the one ‘cause it was always me and you

I felt so lost but now I’m found
I felt so lost but now I’m found
I felt so lost but now I’m found
I felt so lost but now I’m found
