My new album, Memories of You, is out now everywhere!

Album art by Lydia Wingate.

Hi, all! I'm so excited to share Memories of You! This album is a love letter to the Persona series. Give it a listen:

I'll leave you with the liner notes:

"Memories of You is a love letter to the Persona series. On August 14, 2007, I opened up my Playstation 2, inserted my brand new copy of Persona 3, and within moments my life was changed. The opening sequence, featuring the characters placed against a highly stylized and abstract cityscape, captivated me to no end. It was the first time I had ever heard the music of Shoji Meguro. Dream-like guitars, jagged pianos, and impossibly groovy bass lines imprinted themselves on my DNA.

I was 14 years old at the time and I was beginning to realize that I wanted to spend the rest of my life making music. Like any 14-year-old, I felt awkward, alone, and entirely unsure of myself. And yet, here on my old CRT, was a group of teenagers who were entirely unlike me: effortlessly cool, incredibly hip, and beyond powerful. I vicariously lived through them as they lived their lives soundtracked by the most amazing music I had ever heard. I ached to be them.

And now, on the day that I turn 28, I write this as a composer for video games who carried that dream with him for 15 years. The Persona series has been with me this whole time and I’m thankful for it. I want to spend the rest of my life making the kind of games and telling the kind of stories that small-town kids like myself can carry with them through life. It starts with this album. Thanks for listening.
