about

Gentrification tends to be poorly planned sending many residents into homelessness including young people trying to work their way up the tech industry bass and keysladder.

lyrics

BOUTIQUE CITY
They’re the nouveau Riche
Of boutique city
The Nouveau Riche
Of Boutique city

Nice guys finish last
I hate to tell you
Nice guys finish last
That be can’t true
This whole place is up for sale
If you got the millions
Maserati’s park for free
Out in front of city hall

Girls get treated bad
No surprise about that
Girls get treated bad
You know that’s true
Pack up that canvas and paint
Close down that art space
Open up the gold mine
All things must gentrify

Don’t be that Techie
Living in the tent city
Got your college degree
Thought it would you set you free
If you had that one idea
just that one million dollar idea
But the rest of your mind is blank
Is that rest of your mind blank ?

Turned off all the lights in the under ground
Everyone you know been kicked out
Every gold rush has got to have a silver lining

Tirelessly touring and recording, the Bay Area-via-New England songwriter recently signed a publishing deal with Wixen Publishing, joining an impressive artist which includes Tom Petty and Weezer. Co-wrote a top-40 European hit “San Francisco,” by Cascada, a song with which the German Dance pop group also took to #15 on the German charts.
Watch for the 2014 release POPJUNK FLUFF and HYPE.
