"Para Ti" E.P 6/26/20
Go stream "Para Ti" on your favorite music platform!
"Para Ti" is my new 3 track E.P that brings super chill and upbeat vibes to cruise to, just For You. This E.P features my single "Dreaming".
I wrote and recorded the first demo versions of these songs in 2013. These are technically the first New Islands tracks! The songs have gone through many changes in the years. I restructured them, added different chords, guitar licks and vocal harmonies till I ended up with this finished product. These songs represent love and great times. I'm so proud to finally present the music. I hope to connect with you through the lyrics and that you can escape the world a little through the vibes of my music.
This is for you love, Esto es Para Ti amor!
"Forget about your worries, just let the music take you far away!"
"Para Ti" is Spanish and translates to "For You". How do you say "For You" in your language?

Para Ti E.P
Bloom E.P 1/31/20
My debut E.P "Bloom" is out on all streaming platforms! "Bloom" is about self growth and the struggle it can be to get there. I want people to know that after an ugly storm, there is sunlight and your flowers can bloom again.
From influences such as The Beatles, Mac DeMarco, Brenton Wood, boy pablo, and many more, this E.P brings upbeat and wavy vibes for any kind of day!
New Islands 3 singles "Holy Smokes", "Bloom", and "Let's Jam, Girl" are included in this musical journey. I hope to connect with people through these songs about growth. Thank you all for the overwhelming support and I hope you enjoy!
