about

After releasing three (relatively) lo-fi EPs mainly showcasing my Game Boy-based music programming ("Hit and Run," "8-Bit Lebowski," and "3P"), I decided it was time to head into the studio to hone and develop a larger, "full-band" sound. The result is this album, 11 guitar-drenched, drum-soaked, catchy but complex mini rock symphonies.

More than a year in the making, "Wordplay" is a conceptual sonic evolution for me. Live instruments blend seamlessly with rich 8-bit sounds to create a genre-defying, truly unique musical experience. I've seriously never been prouder of anything I've ever put out. And now, you can have it at home! I hope you enjoy it. Thanks!

-Paul
