Recently the producer I worked with on my debut record 13 years ago returned a long-lost box of 4 track tapes that had been found in the basement of the studio where I used to record.
As it turns out, the tapes contained all of my earliest recordings from when I was 16, 17, and 18 years old. This past week as I listened, I couldn’t help but feel proud of my younger self for being so brave with such dangerous truth.
At the time, I had just left the church I grew up in, my relationship with my family and friends was fractured (at best) as a result of my being gay and scary and on drugs, and my heart was broken by first love ending – but I was OUT and FREE and QUEER and BRAVE in ways way back then which are still totally badass now!
For Pride, in honor of all the brave queer youth who are fighting for their survival and voice these days just as I did back then, I’ve released all of the songs on Bandcamp under the title “Pull The Plug”.
Listen free and download HERE (or by clicking the record cover below). You are going to LOVE this one if you are into depressed 15 year old gay boys singing about sex, drugs and Jesus…or if you just enjoy a good, old-fashioned, 90s Portland queer indie music time machine party!
