Nounverber This is one of those rare "stop me in my tracks" albums that come along once in a blue moon. Beautifully arranged and the vocals are amazing. Favorite track: Nothing Is Sacred.

about

This EP is the music to come out of my very first RPM Challenge. (rpmchallenge.com).

I was inspired to undertake this challenge after one of my musician friends told me about it, and up until that point I had spoken for years about wanting to write music but had never taken the time to sit down and actually write. I learned a lot during this time about my own process as a songwriter and a bit about how to record. My biggest takeaway from this experience (besides falling in love with songwriting as an artform) is that it really is possible to create something satisfying if one merely gives themselves the permission to focus and explore for a set period of time. I am grateful to this challenge, as it has sparked a new side of my creativity which I am thrilled to continue exploring from now on.

I encourage anyone who is considering undertaking a creative project to suspend their inhibitions and take the leap, as I believe that the act of creating is one of the greatest gifts we can offer ourselves.

These songs were written and recorded during the month of February, 2016. I hope you listen, and enjoy.

Track Name: Nothing Is Sacred
Branches stretch like fingers cutting
Through a night sky
Reaching up to embrace the rain
I am awake to feel the ache of my body tethered to the earth

Holding nothing sacred

Crescent moon smiles so menacingly
Watching the world from a starry throne
Sound of a distant highway bleeds through
The quietest evening

Holding nothing sacred

Facing mortality
There will come a day when
I return to the earth as food for worms

Holding nothing sacred
Holding nothing
.
Track Name: Discernment
Do you think that I could lay here
For a while?
I don't have any place that I'd rather be

Do you think that I could live here
For a while?
I don't have any place that I can go to

I never saw it coming
I only had a feeling
That you would speak a thousand years
In one longing breath

I never saw it coming
Like a lightening flash in my eyes
I wanted to see you
But it's rendered me blind

And you knew it

It's not what I expected
But everything I feared
Who will offer a kind word now?
Who will offer sweet solace and affection?

I never saw it coming
But now I see you going
And darling, I don't know if I should follow
But there I go
There I go
.
Track Name: Closed Doors
Lately I see
From my doorstep
They sigh through waves of hope
But no one knows
That while you sleep
They take all you own

Who knows?

Lately I see
From my window
They cry from clouded hope
But no one knows
That while you sleep
They strip your dignity

Who cares?

So I close the door
And I crawl to my sheets
And I wait for the sun to rise

My soul is tired
So let me go
I won't tolerate any more

Lately I see
From my rooftop
They buy their way through pain
But no one knows
That while you sleep
They drink your soul

Who's there?

So I close the door
And I crawl to my sheets
And I wait for the sun to rise

My soul is tired
So let me go
I won't tolerate any more
