Brainspotting A bouncy synth track full of nostalgia

I won’t lie, this track was inspired by the movie “Trainspotting”. That UK synth nostalgia got to me after rewatching the movie recently and I had to sit down and create my own. Hopefully this track can help set a similar mood to one of your projects! Great for: Underscoring a podcast Background to the…

Square Tired Bicycle A funky descending melody with an off-kilter ukelele

This is a track I’ve had around for a while. I had been listening to Damon Albarn a lot when I first wrote this and loved something about the idea of a slowly de-tuned staccato synth as the main melody in a song. You’ll hear what I mean during the intro of this piece –…

The Kids Room A fun child-like freebie with bells & flute

This week I got this little diddy inspired by kids and their messy, toy-covered rooms. If you’ve got anything that needs fun, child-like theme song – give this track a go.

Arcade Heroes A retro 8-bit arcade theme for all the beautiful geeks

Sometimes a song is born out of just playing around with all the instruments I’ve collected/sampled/etc. over the years. That’s the case here. I found an old 8-bit emulator and just had a bunch of fun with it to create this retro-arcade inspired song. Give it a download if you need a peppy old vintage…

Same Thing Every Day A laid back beat with a catchy bassline

Wait for the beat to drop on this one – it’s got a long intro that would make a great fade-in under dialogue/narration and then a found sound beat and catchy bass line take over. This track reminds me of the walk to the subway that some people do everyday, or the strangers who you…

Alien Tongues An odd sci-fi vocal melody

I was inspired by the Golden Record that was shot into outer space on one of the Voyager missions when I sat down to record this track. I asked myself, “What if you had to write a song in an extra-terrestrial language?” The main melody that you hear is my own voice, altered to sound…

At Rest A lofi, relaxed vibe in two parts

Continuing with my “lofi” series, here is a very relaxed composition with a solid backbeat running throughout. The song has a transition about halfway through which ushers in a really nice electric guitar melody and then fades into it’s outro. If you are looking for something lofi and chill for your project, this tune might…

Humming Through The Grocery Store A charming little indie pop tune with female humming.

I recorded this track a few years back. The melody was one of those ones that literally came to me as I was pushing a cart through the grocery store. I had to mute the radio & keep humming it the whole drive home so that I didn’t lose it. I laid it down, had…

Heartbreaker A song to make any situation a wee bit sad...

This one’s a bit of a personal one. I dug it out of my archives from a time I was feeling pretty blue – but thought it had some quality to it that might work really well in the right project. If you need something acoustic based, with a hint of sadness, give this tune…

Never Left The 80s A super 80s synth track harkening back to roller discos & neon lights

I like to have a lot of fun with clichés when I sit down to record sometimes – and the 80s is just such a fun one to play around with. This track started with the synthesizer melody you hear in the chorus and the rest just poured out. Maybe some part of me should…

Floating Downhill A dreamy, chilled out lofi track.

I use lofi chilled hiphop as a background soundtrack a lot while I’m working on design/website work. Lately, I’ve been interested in trying my hand at some of my own lofi tracks – and this lovely song was born out of that. If you need something mellow & chill that will sit nicely in the…
