Beyond Slumber is a collection of songs with subtle dreamlike elements from beginning to end. The original title for this album was actually going to be a combination of the Latin words for “happy” and “dream”. With lots of instruments playing and lots of mystery in the vocals, I gravitated towards keeping an upbeat groove with varying lyrical inspiration. The instruments range from midi electric pianos and drums to orchestral arrangements. I wrote the lyrics with build-up in mind as well as a slight optimistic, and occasionally, whimsical edge.
