I recorded these demos in 2012.
I spent a semester overseas studying in London and afterwards made my way around a few nearby countries couchsurfing, skateboarding and playing music for people. I recorded these demos in various spaces throughout my travels abroad directly onto the internet (www.soundcloud.com/shoheimusic
). They document my performance tendencies at a very specific time of my life, and for this reason, as I was clearing my SoundCloud of old recordings to make room for new ones, I couldn't delete these. As overly earnest as this may sound, I was reminded of how different of a person I was and how these songs I've been playing over and over all this time have slowly changed along with me. I love that about these recordings.
