The name "Kitchen Sink" is inspired by the film movement popular in 1960's Britain called "Kitchen Sink Realism." Masterpieces such as Kes and The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner are brilliant, because of their simplicity. Not to say my music is anywhere near as transcendent as those films, but I wanted to use the idea of simplicity and funnel it towards music. So Kitchen Sink is a project founded on the idea of getting rid of the cumbersome aspects in music. In excluding drums and limiting the arrangements, I wanted to achieve an intimacy that is so often lost with a traditional rock and roll set up.
Most of these songs were written over a year ago, so they feel outdated to me, but hopefully they don't feel that way to you. They are deeply personal, yet in a more indirect capacity.
I hope you enjoy the music of Kitchen Sink.
