The EP’s six songs explore love, loss, and emotional maturing with rare candor and clarity. Rich in universal sentiments refreshingly expressed, a recurring theme is the wistfulness of life’s transitional chapters, as we shed old selves and grope for fresh identity.
What I once thought was a silly song about a toad actually turned out to be a way to process my own music journey. I feel extraordinarily out of place in the music industry: less cool, good looking, or gritty. But, at the end of the day, I can write a song, and in that way show my true self. Hence, the birth of Toad Boy.
Tall Tales has some of your favorites from the title track, to the dreamy Camille, to the beloved "Freedom" at the end. Prepare yourself for the undulating feelings and vigor of my 23 year old self.
7 songs dedicated to my family and wife for the heaps of love they give on the regular. From sweet, to salty, to silly the album hops back and forth with true love as its' through line. I hope from the bottom of my heart that you enjoy it!
THE CHOICES OF JOHN STILL
My most experimental album to date. Chances are, if you're over 50 you won't enjoy most of the songs on this album. Think that's too broad of a statement? After ~1000 shows it proves sad and true! Please enjoy this strange dive into a concept album about a family out of control.
This is the result of my first 40 original songs. It's my first attempt at working with a team to produce a broad spectrum of music: from a timeless wedding ballad to a song about my old rat, Pickles. It holds a dear spot in many hearts, including mine.
