about

Maybe I'm Bored is a four track EP of piano ballads which I wrote in 2017 and released on May 18th 2018.

We filmed and recorded the core tracks (piano, lead vocal, bass and drums) live at Falmouth University. The live videos can be seen here:

I decided to overdub some tracks on top of the live recordings. Thanks to Declan and Joe for providing some amazing guitar and vocal tracks respectively.

Thanks to everyone who agreed to get involved in the live part of the project:

Sam Danielak: Filming, Direction, Editing
Matt Males: Filming
Declan Kitchener: Bass Guitar
Phillip Brown: Drums
Chris Baker: Executive Production
Andrew Bache: Lighting

A live and un-altered "raw" version of this EP is available here:

Track Name: In The Land Of The Rent-less
Now, in The Land Of The Rent-less
An oppurtunity presents itself

Zen bridges in only Li
Like so many I've seen burning periodically
Native to a place with the feeling half-erased
American as far as England knows

So, who's gonna take me on that aeroplane
And watch me as I catch my second wind?
Takes one to know one

On and on it goes
The local, broken sherrif's boy who everybody knows

So, now in The Land Of The Rent-less
The broken sherrif's boy presents himself
Track Name: Czechoslovakia
Entropy
50, 60 maybe 70 years before it's snatched away from me
And you could see that feeling in my eyes each time I tried

Faithfully, there's a saucer flying over me
I've always hoped for some catastrophe
Mass abduction of the population
Maybe I'm bored

Czechoslovakia
Czechoslovakia
What does it take for this dying harmony to survive?
Czechoslovakia
Czechoslovakia
Making a wish on your birthday and closing your eyes

Coming down to get us as we lie
Who could really blame us
At the time it was all so simple then
I used to stop and read the news

In Czechoslovakia
Czechoslovakia
What does it take for this frail harmony to survive?
In Czechoslovakia
Czechoslovakia
Making a wish on your birthday and closing your eyes
Track Name: 100 Buffalo
I wanna climb intside your mind where nothing is ever moved around
Without a sound I save the wreckage from the void
Without a noise perform a miracle

But were I in there would I find the incapacity you speak about?
"Hey, get me out!", cries the hero that I thought I was
What did I hope to prove?

Hey, wait
I guess God isn't up there listening like we thought he was
K, stay
I could throttle this lovable idiot if I thought you'd you change

I wanna give you both my eyes so that you can see the mess we're in
I feel just like 100 buffalo were given every green light in the world

You wanna give me both your ears so that I can hear the breaking bow
It's all around
I wanna quote Lao Tzu or Alan Watts but what good would it do?

Hey, wait
I guess God isn't up there listening like we thought he was
K, stay
I could throttle this lovable idiot if I thought you'd you change
Track Name: We're Ridiculous
Waiting for the start
Colours in the dark
And every piece to fall in place
And for God to reach your case

Frozen boy will pray
Every season, every day
A passing Tannoy car says walk away

And sever all
Several miles
We could run away
You're not sick, I'm not stuck
We're ridiculous

Colder than the rest
Smart enough to test
Every scene I get to play
Every move my body makes

It's always wishes, prayers and hope
86-years-old
I'll ask my body how far can it go

Several
Several miles, we can run away
But we're still by ourselves
So we're ridiculous
