about

remastered version of "I Fell Asleep Like This" (may 2016)
includes redesigned lyric book .pdf

many of the album photos in the booklet are from my 24th birthday (nov 25, 2014) and were the inception of White Girl Wasted. i rented a motel room by myself, with intention to write songs. i painted my face for the gods, drank an entire bottle of champagne, recorded wails into a computer, and came up with some messy fucking lyrics, which eventually turned into some of these songs. i woke up drunk and took this picture in the morning. it was a melancholy important birthday. shit a lot has happened since then…

the photos were taken one month after my father died and the beginning of financial hardships for my mom and brother. i’ve never made music before and it has been such an important outlet to deal with my life, which is blessed and beautiful, but often tinged with intensity of emotional turmoil and painful longing. idk why either...

i couldn’t have a fulfilling existence without all of these aspects. i believe in music. i believe in the power of art to heal us and to make us sit in uncomfortable nuance and describe the confusing, grotesque, and contradictory aspects of this world. people often view art as a luxury… an unnecessary foray into complicated emotions: narcissistic at best, apolitical at it’s worst. it can be all those things but fuck that!

i would not be alive without art/music and i was put on this planet to create. i try to be very particular and thoughtful with the work i put out publicly. i hope it comes out that way. i hope you engage with it in an equally thoughtful way. i hope it makes you think. i hope it generates meaningful dialogue and/or is just something soothing thats helps you deal with your feelings/reality.

i’m not here to make music that is super easy to digest. it’s okay if you don’t like it. the sounds often come from a difficult place in my heart and psyche. i’m influenced by pain, but also drawn to the ethereal abstract side of sound. i think a lot about death: the death of my father, the death of the illusion of a perfect suburban dream, how i’m getting older and my body will eventually perish, the decay of romance, the death of masculinity, and the end of this earth.

how we party and drink and do drugs and fuck to cope with being messy nasty queers, living in the fringes of society. how we are an inevitable result of a poisonous culture that tries to suppress all avenues of pleasure and magic. that being said, this is my story: I FELL ASLEEP LIKE THIS AND I’M JUST GETTING STARTED!

thank you to Nessa and Blew Velvet for the piano lessons. thanks to all the beat producers, musicians, dancers, videographers and singers who contributed to this project. thanks to all the people that booked shows. thanks to Sam for funding the tape! special thanks to all my roommates and freaky friends that have easily become my family.
