about

Pop music is the hipster punk rock.

This is the premise that colors Fine By Me. Each song is an attempt to try to make an intimate bedroom pop song with nothing intimate sounding or bedroom about it. Are the songs polished and overproduced? To some. Are they raw and incoherent? To others. Fine by Me is an experiment to try and find what lies in the middle of sly bouncy pop music and isolated airy folk, and if it leads you to hearing something just a little new and surprising, well... that's fine by me!.

Track Name: Fine By Me
Today you’re gonna say what it is now
That keeps kids grooving uncontrolled
Today you’re gonna play like it’s cool now
To prove punk spirit’s bought and sold


And if you’re asking me
Straight through it all I can see
Cuz I don’t need a hand, with the words now


Everyone knows now
The deal isn’t free
You say rock and roll is dead, but that’s fine by me.


Today I’m gonna stay tried and true now
Despite your offers, green but cold.
Today I gravitate to the new now
And leave my language for the molds


And if you’re asking me
Straight through it I want to be
Cuz I can bet my hand on the house now


Everyone knows now
The deal isn’t free
You say rock and roll is dead, but that’s fine by me.


When it’s all been said
You find you’re in the red.
When it’s all been said
Your ways are always dead.
When it’s all been done
The winners always won
When it’s all been done
I’ll take my songs and run run run


Everyone knows now
The deal isn’t free
You say rock and roll is dead, but that’s fine by me.
Everyone knows now
The kids hold the key
Since you shot rock n roll, but that’s fine by me.
Track Name: Storyteller
Every story starts at “Once Upon a Time”
Or so my friend told me
Biting hook and line
But the tale that’s left me alone through the years
Started as a secret I took from my fears

Storyteller spin something strange
A story told that time can still change
Help me forget my regrets in exchange

Casual you call me once or twice
Apprehension answers
I try to play nice
Because the tale that brings my reservations back
Is no longer secret
No longer in black

Storyteller spin something strange
A story told that time can still change
Help me forget my regrets in exchange

They say that every story starts at once upon a time
Whether told in silence or spoken in rhyme

Storyteller spin something strange
A story told that time can still change
Help me forget my regrets in exchange
Track Name: Unwavering
Whispers are finding me
Looking and dodging through trees
Spreading like fires
A good man’s desires unfreeze
Turning of stones
Where nobody makes homes anymore
But I sit with a strain
As the silence would rain, oh it pours


Hidden in plain sight
The trees and the flashlight align
Away from the staircase
You push me at my place in time
Decisional red rush
All crawling through dead brush to me
Alone in the panic
All rendered organic and free


Unwavering
The songs we sing
The deafening
Of the fall
Unfiltering
All set at peace
The quickening
Of the call
Whispers are passing me
Burning the one degree air
As I sort through the fires
My head turns and tires, laid bare
Turning of stones
I’m the one who’s called home here before
But I sit with a strain
As the silence would rain, oh it pours


Unwavering
The songs we sing
The deafening
Of the fall
Unfiltering
All set at peace
The quickening
Of the call
