[No More] Memory Lane

[No More] Memory Lane was a short passion project to symbolize the temptation to look back on past mistakes – the could’ve, would’ve, should’ve. It’s really just four minor chords on a piano over four bars. The supporting instruments – drums, synths, bass, kalimba – enhance an emotional vibe encouraging me to reflect more.


The minimal lyrics are a callback to one of my first completed songs as a teen – Memory Lane. The original song was about revisiting memories at the end of a relationship with an ex. This version track is more focused on pushing forward and leaving the past in the side-view mirror.

This is the conclusion, not only to the album, but my mindset towards music production. I have great memories of creating music with other Virginia-based underground artists. And I hope to collaborate with more artists for a more diverse discography. But I have ideas for new music I need to pursue now.

As I said in the 1-Archive-1 introduction, the album is a compilation covering my past 10+ years and peaks into my current styles.

It’s a milestone.

Memory Lane
Memory Lane [ohh], no more

Not yet

Memory Lane, no more

Memory Lane [ohh]
