It's been a long journey and it certainly isn't close to being over. All the people I've met, all the different styles I've come in contact with, chiptune really has impacted my life in great ways. I started as just an enthusiast who liked to make custom Game Boys. One thing led to another and I ended up making them for some of the biggest names and my own personal idols. In what seems like only a short amount of time, I've found myself accepted into the best community of talented friends I could ever ask for. Never have I found a place that I thought I belonged most to until now. I am home. Chiptune has taken me hundreds of miles from home multiple times to play with and party it up with some of the most talented composers and friends I have ever met. You guys are my family. I don't know what I'd do without you anymore.
Here's a few songs I've put together along the way. <3
I love you guys and hope you enjoy it as much as I did writing it.

I want to thank all of my best friends in the community, you know who you are. EVERYONE. I talk to just about 98% of the people I am friends with on facebook and I am SURE we've ended up talking about music and you've given me constructive criticism and praise. Without your input I would still be making unce drums and pulse kicks. Never using a table and having anxiety attacks looking at the WAVE screen. So thanks a million to you guys who helped me better myself!
Special thanks to Trey Frye, the man who unknowingly got me obsessed with chiptune the moment I first heard him play in a small venue in Harpers Ferry that I was dragged to. Definitely a turning point in my life and what got me to where I am today. My biggest idol and is now one of my best friends.
Also to Casey VanAntwerp, without his constant motivation and kind words of wisdom, I might have given up on writing multiple times because I felt inadequate and inferior to the scene. Always being someone to talk to whenever I needed music related or not, hes been there to help. Big ups for helping out of West Virginia and getting me me my first Michigan show AND FOR MASTERING THIS ALBUM!
Nick Wilson, dude you are one rad graphic designer that people definitely need to look more into. On top of designing my album art and my new logo, you're a seriously kick ass down to earth guy. Your music rules no matter what you or others may think. Keep it up and I'll keep listening.
As for everyone else, thank you for your time to check out my hard work and for reading this long excerpt. With out you guys; friends, fans, and family, I would be a very quiet person stuck behind a small illuminated screen making music only for myself. I'm glad I can share these tracks with you. <3
