Release of "Obscure Sorrows"

I am extremely pleased to announce that my second album, "Obscure Sorrows", is now available to stream and download for FREE on Bandcamp It will be released on all platforms later in the week. "Obscure Sorrows" is a concept record where every track is inspired by a word from John Koenig's "Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows". These tracks are the sonic embodiment of the emotions and thoughts inherent in these words. With each word portraying a starkly different emotion, the music follows suit and pulls from a wide range of musical backgrounds. This album features modern jazz, structured improvisations, chamber music and even metal influenced moments!
