-----EP INFO-----

I started recording this EP back in the late summer/fall of last year. I put a lot of effort into making sure that all of the lyrics were as personal and thought provoking as possible. The main instruments I chose to use were piano, bell synths, midi drums and strings. It's definitely a super chillaxed album. I thought I'd share with you all why I chose to name my EP what I did. Near my house in KC, there is a body of water called Weatherby Lake. I go out there all the time with friends and skate through the old streets or sit on a bench and talk near a playground in its center.
Anyway, one night, a few of my friends and I were sitting on a dock just feet from the water's edge. The night was perfect. The temperature was just right, the air was calm, and as I gazed out into the lake, I noticed how beautiful the surrounding was. I was in awe of how pretty it looked with the sky still backlit from the sunset and the water so clear that it looked like glass. You could literally see the clouds above in the reflection of the water. Incredible. Serenity is a major thing I tried to capture. Simple instrumentals with thoughtful lyrics. Hope it's to your liking! Please show some love and purchase the EP on iTunes if you dig it. :)

Peace and love,
