about

My Own Way was created in the Spring of 2011 at The Basin Studios in Victoria. My first feature film role left me just two half-day rehearsals with a new band before 5 days of tracking. The mixing process took place remotely during a last minute acting trip to the US and somehow the EP was completed before my second UK Tour.

I consider this a transitional album, taking me steadily away from the world of overproduced pop and back to my musical roots. The songs are about love, addiction, my experience in the music industry - prior to conceiving this EP and fighting for what you believe in with your hearts and minds.

Special thanks to my family and friends for allowing and encouraging me to do what I love. To Pete, Liam, Sam and Matt for making the impossible possible. Your willingness to share your musical talents with me is one of the greatest gifts I have ever been given. To all the positive and negative experiences in my life for making me a stronger, more humble human being. Finally to my fans, without whom I would be lost. You give me more than you know and I thank you so much for your love and ongoing support.

Track Name: cities
What are you waiting for? You seem to dream a lot.
Am I the only one who hungers for a stop
To the greed and insanity I see destroy cities of you and me
Perhaps we should open our eyes

Would you say a word, if I could read your mind?
Could you conceal your fears with colours on the outside?
Would you fight in a war that you wouldn't lead - Destroy cities of you and me -
Blinded by bias and pride?

Dreaming of life where you'd die for a love that you believe in
Leading a fight with your mind all the weaponry you needed

What are we waiting for? The planets won't align.
The dove won't find it's way through this polluted skyline
United we could kill the greed and the gravity - save cities of you and me
Ending this chapter in time.

Dreaming of life where you'd die for a love that you believe in
Leading a fight with your mind all the weaponry you needed
Dreaming of life where you'd die for a love that you believe in
Leading a fight with your mind all the weaponry you needed


Would you fight in a war that you wouldn't lead?


Dreaming of life where you'd die for a love that you believe in
Leading a fight with your mind all the weaponry you needed
Dreaming of life where you'd die for a love that you believe in
Leading a fight with your mind all the weaponry you needed
Track Name: defeated
She went away
The dream that she dreamed it caught her
What more can I say
She wanted to feel a difference

She feels the pain of obsession
more hurt than what she remembers
Uh Oh ohh Uh Oh ohh
One more of a breed that's dying
can you feel the control sliding
Uh Oh ohh Uh Oh ohh

She Went Away
And there she stayed
And now she's coming down

Don't Be Defeated By It
Don't Be Defeated By It
Don't Be Defeated By It
Don't Be Defeated By It

She Idolised
The Pictures of pretty People
Her features despised
She wanted to see a difference

She feels the pain of obsession
more hurt than what she remembers
Uh Oh ohh Uh Oh ohh
One more of a breed that's dying
can you feel the control sliding
Uh Oh ohh Uh Oh ohh

She idolised
And paid the price
And now she's coming down
Don't Be Defeated By It
Don't Be Defeated By It
Don't Be Defeated By It
Don't Be Defeated By It

Oh Ohh ohhhhhh
Don't Be Defeated By It
Oh Ohh Oh ohhhhhh

Oh Ohh ohhhhhh
Don't Be Defeated By It
Oh Ohh Oh ohhhhhh
Track Name: she said
Been this way for many years
But it aint felt like this
With my heart in my mouth and my mouth on the floor
I confuse myself sometimes

Like who was I before I knew
the happiness brought on by you?
London bridge is falling down
The whole town is talking now

She said that I would be the first to notice
She said my eyes would be the last to focus

feels okay when we loose sight
But who is sure it’s right
With my heart on my sleeve and my sleeve on the floor
I confuse myself sometimes

Cos I'm not sure how you feel?
And it scares me cos it feels so real
i’m falling live an avalanche
it feels so real

She said that I would be the first to notice
She said my eyes would be the last to focus
Don't you think you and I oughta be more than something
She Said

It aint like you upsetting others
it aint like you for setting free
If you like someone let’s be honest
If you like someone set me free
It aint like you to be dishonest
it aint like you for setting free

Once more say your prayers
Two times your saving grace
The truth behind your eyes
is written on your face

She said that I would be the first to notice
She said my eyes would be the last to focus
Don't you think you and I oughta be more than something
She Said
She said that I would be the first to notice
She said my eyes would be the last to focus
Don't you think you and I oughta be more than something
She Said
Track Name: my own way
The love in my eyes
It was mine, now it's gone.
The love that I saved
Is it mine now?
Higher and higher and higher
don't care if you're not a flier
we'll make the wire just a little bit tighter
Prepare for this just prepare for this

Running from my heart into incarceration
I battled with myself and I found my own way
I became a demon dreaming of a saviour
Looked into the stars and I found my own way

the fight in my mind
It is mine now you're gone
The fight that I saved
I'm alive now
Higher and higher and higher
Don't care if I do catch fire
All I require is a little desire
To prepare for this I'm prepared for this

Running from my heart into incarceration
I battled with myself and I found my own way
I became a demon dreaming of a saviour
Looked into the stars and I found my own way

There were angels on the sidewalk as you passed me by
There were heroes in the shadows waiting for the light
I will be gracious of that I am sure
But the truth may be harder than the lies we endure
Track Name: survival
I wait here for you
I'm all alone with another
Going away was all I did
When I was with you I was missing
Going away
Moments Away I am found
In my own light I will lead you

Come with me take my hand
I can offer you survival
Hunting truths through promised lands
I can offer you survival

I wait here for you
A lonely lover with strength from other things
Moments Away
Going Away

Come with me take my hand
I can offer you survival
Hunting truths through promised lands
I can offer you survival
Follow me take my hand
I can offer you survival
I can offer you survival

Offer you survival
Offer you survival

(Come With Me)
(Take My Hand)
(Hunting Truth) All at once I fear the madness
(Promised Lands) One more time I fear the madness.

Come With Me (I can offer you survival)
Take My Hand (I can offer you survival)
Hunting Truth (I can offer you survival)
Promised Lands (I can offer you survival)
