His imaginative and sparking lyrics complement the endearing music for a familiar sound that he makes all his own.

“Dear Moon” is about the isolation an artist feels being holed up in a NYC apartment trying to finish an a creative project.

”This song is about living through the New York winters as an artist that stays up late each night. I wrote this after a stretch of not seeing daylight, only to leave the apartment in time to catch the moon staring back at me. I tried to capture the isolation and melancholy of how I was feeling in that moment by writing directly to the moon.”

This song is off his upcoming album Ride on Through due out this June.
