'Unbridled energy and a commitment to maintaining the epic quality of the pop tunes he's recording. It proves that this jack-of-all-trades singer-songwriter has an solid artistic vision.'-- Mike Baker, Splendid Magazine 'Like John Lennon singing Radiohead songs.'-- Andy Ross, OK Go Much like the first solo albums of Paul McCartney and Emitt Rhodes, Glorified Demos -- an indie rock collection by way of mid-sixties Liverpool and early-seventies basements -- was recorded at home with Steve Moss playing every instrument and performing every production role himself. 'After college, I went through a period where everything came apart for a few years. Jobs and friends fell through, and I ended up with a lot of time on my hands. Part of my process for picking up the pieces became writing songs.' Recorded over a period of 27 months, multitracking to computer using a single microphone, the garage pop anthems on Glorified Demos began simply: 'The whole project started as a proof of concept - testing out ideas as I wrote.' Early simple experiments rapidly grew in both ambition and Polish into fully produced arrangements and performances. The 11 songs of Glorified Demos form a semi-autobiographical song cycle of resolve, struggle, loneliness and love.
