about

Eston Raleigh, North Carolina

"I really enjoy hearing songs that have that peculiar twist, where there's a predicament the narrator's singing about," says the singer, "but they make it in a very carefree, happy way."

Track Name: Whatever Donna/A Notch for Nancy
Whatever Donna

Whenever she drops that fool,
Donna’s gonna hit the dancehall soon
Maybe time has come to make your move,
And maybe she could spark your life anew
Well my friend I have some news for you,
Donna’s gonna dance on you and your tomb
By all means go on and spin the spool,
Ring me later when you’re licking your wounds

(Verse 2)
Whatever that girl will do, be sure to watch your bankroll too
In the clubs she loves to blur the wound, hoping some will rub off on you
Take her home and she can rule the roost, time will sharpen like a splinter soon
Three days may be your honeymoon, then Donna’s gonna rain down on you

(Chorus)
Ooh, Ooh Ooh ~ That’s what Donna’s gonna do
Oh Soon, maybe one day with you,
She ain’t one bit confused you fool,
Maybe one day to you

(Verse 3)
Whatever she says so cool, is gonna echo out her loon
Maybe time has come to break or lose,
Soon or later time will pass her through
Well my friend I doubt that will come true, fortune smiles when she leaves the room
By no means go and spark the fuse
Her song will sing to spin her ruse~

A Notch for Nancy

(Verse 1)
Who is it you’re into? Even if a passing fool would do, I know you too well to go through hell, and back to a heart of blue~
I know the truth, ladies like you will never choose a poor groom, and even if you want to, safety is a girl’s best shield to use ~

(Chorus)
Ooh Nancy, tell me who you wanna be
Nancy, tell me who it’s gonna be

(Verse 2)
It’s nothing new, a lover like you never stoops too low for soon, you’re immune & I am a feather just blowing like a weather balloon
But I’m a tune worthy of a play and maybe today will prove, so make some room for I am a fella that you’ll remember for moons

(Chorus)
Ooh Nancy, tell me who you wanna be
Nancy, tell me who it’s gonna be
Track Name: Someone To
Someone, Someone to, Someone to pass my thoughts to
Someone, Someone to, Someone to spill my guts to

‘Cause waking up alone feels so cold, as cold as cold can be to me
As cold as cold will be

When I’m counting out the hours, they don’t tick so hastily
As once upon a time there hardly was enough to breathe

And I would often seethe awake so long, to break the dawn there’s something left to see clearly and easy as the breeze

Friends and faces ebb and flow, the tide of life flows constantly,
Washing chapters of your time, can’t help holding on tightly

Many faces go, were they even known?
Lost to sky and sea, Whitney in 2nd grade you sat with me

All the hours stepping by, then the void will visit me,
Only goodnight to my peeps and maybe counting sheep fleeting

Where do people go? ‘Cause waking up alone feels so cold,
Only memory save these for me and time to feed
Track Name: AM Gold
Back in the days of vocal gangs, city streets hummed a groovy new strain
Records spun a sweet honey taste, teenagers danced like fools with no shame

And the longer that we play this game, baby I just wanna be your #2
But at least I keep my pride astray, to dedicate my life to serving you

Right now the airwaves are soft as catchy clouds
the AM waves are raining down on the streets for us to feast
So in a hoopdee or a Model-T songs are sparking all over me
‘Cause the speaker’s treasure spills out for free, in the streets for us to feast on

Dusty stacks hold golden grain, treasure hides in grooves of old names
Dig in crates for the golden flame, just the doo wop I choose to play
Back in the days chewing bubble gaze, city streets hummed a groovy new strain
Records spun a sweet honey taste, teenagers danced like fools with no shame

And the longer that we play this game, baby I just wanna be your #2
But at least I keep my pride astray, to dedicate my life to serving you

Right now the airwaves are soft as catchy clouds,
the AM waves are raining down on the streets for us to feast,
So in a hoopdee or a Model-T sounds are sparking all over me,
Cause this speaker’s treasure spills out for free, in the streets for us to feast on
Track Name: Luxy's Last Kiss
She was born bourgeoisie
And stunning Luxy had a plan for me
All the needs that weaken knees
Young dreams are painted green

Ripped the sleeve from my heart
And As we met, I saw her take apart
The beating pulse for feeling,
She said I’d washen clean, and I was better off in need

So I let it happen to me
That cunning minx she had a plan for me,
So discreet and secretly, she offered it to me
She offered it to me, I knew not what I need, and Who was I to plead?
She offered it to me
Track Name: Just Another Holiday!
Oh Dear friends you can find this one
Dreaming of my simple days of young,
Bloody streets are never clean So
I don’t know how I can be

Woke up feeling good today,
Didn’t work it out that way
I feel my mind has gone astray,
Just Another Holiday, Just Another Holiday

530 North Bloodworth Street
I’ve got a head and a mind to treat,
Hear the crazy world spinning round
Another case in the same ole town

I seek only what I crave
Just Another Holiday, Just Another Holiday
and for now life won't be a waste
Just Another Holiday, Just Another Holiday

Now I'm slipping down the easy way
Just Another Holiday, Just Another Holiday
and for now life won't be a waste
Just Another Holiday, Just Another Holiday
Track Name: As Easy As You Please
Well my ears are always ringing louder than I'm singing the blues
my feet are always freezing my dreams are always dreaming of you
Oh Dina can you feel it too? It bruises me just like you and your mystique
as wild as you can be

I got my stomp still sticking tick tock tickling my feet
I got my box top creeping keeping me from losing my heat
Oh feeling like a frog in a pail! Oh Dina can you hear me wail your name with glee?
As loud as we can be soft as the breeze with mountains underneath

Well my ears are always ringing louder than I'm singing the blues
my feet are always freezing my dreams are always dreaming of you
Oh Dina it's been tried & true, you lose almost as much as you use
and that's fine with me as long as we're in key
a song we both can sing
Track Name: Truly Untroubled
Truly Untroubled that’s how she spoke with her tongue calling
She tossed her cares for the world out of a window she stole
But you can see down in the hole ‘cause buried is not always gone never for long

And so one day soon, well I’ll craft the most perfect tune for her
And they’ll hum it in the saloon
Lasso the moon to my room break it in two

So let’s keep our dance ‘til the years shine with gold
If you hold my head up then I’ll fold your soul
lay it right down onto our bodies knoll

I envy her so profound
the bother to not tread the ground in my town
Build it to just tear it down
Life is too short to pursue nothing profound

And so one day soon, well I’ll craft the most perfect tune for her
And they’ll hum it in the saloon
Lasso the moon to my room break it in two
Track Name: Color
Azure through, who’s turning 32?
It’s news to me but then maybe soon
We’d agree by any means on anything that's true
New moons, bring attitudes I took a stand and now I’m marooned to this room,
So I croon out this tune

You pick the color and we’ll break it off in time
I’m tired of waking without answer
Fending off relation cancer
Red, white or blue oh well it’s over soon
Our pastels they mix up angry
We were young and thought it gravy

Olive green come flashes so mean,
Never thought love could turn so obscene but it’s
Truth that’s aloof
Some say rouge brings out the brute
A simple dispute will rumble the dirt under you and your roof

You pick the color and we’ll break it off in time
I’m tired of waking without answer fending off relation cancer
Red, white or blue oh well it’s over soon
Our pastels got mixed angry
We were young and thought it gravy
You pick the color and we’ll break it off in time
Track Name: No Green Pastures
Not long before the morning bright, she rolled over with a smile
She said “Honey Bee lift up your view, There’s a bouquet of life for you” It’s true
Many days keep on pouring by, I hear her words echo in my mind and stay and I hurt to feel them new, have to work to make them true

Every single day I wade through a channel I laid,
Always now & then the current tries to pull me astray,
The motion of the waves is keeping me in constant refrain,
And though I’ve no green pasture
I owe my precious hazard

Born a kid of eternal shine, her voice is never far behind calling:
“E-Babe you’re so dear to me, we can be who we wanna be” (You’ll See)
Sailing on to a better life, the only one that is in your mind
within all the good seeds that you root, it's the hearts you leave unbruised


Every single day I wade through the channel I lay,
Always now & then the current tries to pull me astray,
The motion of the waves is keeping me a constant refrain,
And although I’ve no green pasture
I owe my precious hazards
& though most coin it better
I prefer my thoughts untethered
