Swim out into the end.
I’ll stay by your side
looking for the tide that
brings us back,
or a flare to lead the night.
Waiting for a sound
louder than the howling
of an ever-slowing heart,
grabbing waves that hug the light.
hiding in plain sight,
laid to rest,
with a crashing fist of surge and regret,
the undetermined emptiness
leaving cracks that trap the way
in its feebleness.
We’re cradled by the
swaying of permanence,
by the comfort of known hands and dry land
you amaze me with those eyes
you awash me in the sand
swallows me whole
in its feebleness.
Q:Loving the new EP man! You're so talented!
Thank you! Appreciate that.
My EP is now available on Spotify and iTunes. Woohoo. Play it, share it, add it to your playlists, play it again, share it some more and all that good stuff.
It’s great to have options but if you want to support my music in the quickest and most direct way, you can do so by downloading it from Bandcamp.
And as always, THANK YOU.
Q:La Mórbida Luz is a great song, you're music is lovely!
Q:Do you also do the trumpet parts of your compositions or are they done by someone else? Just curious, I think your stuff is great!

Q:a veces pongo tus canciones y me imagino que estás cantandome al oído, con esa barbota y esos ojos y esa voz de seda....
Como dicen en mi patria…eha rayo.
Q:I just listened to your EP straight through. You've made some gorgeous, substantial stuff there. Lovely job :)
Thank you. This means everything to me. It really does.
Need something amazingly wonderful to listen to? Well look no further! Out of the darkness comes Randy Haddock’s triumph ‘Seven Miles’ This five track E.P has the melodic prowess not seen often in today’s music. There were times ‘Seven Miles’ made me think that I was listening to the next Coen Brothers soundtrack.
So if like me you enjoy music that is reminiscent of the great Robert Johnson, pick up a copy on Band camp by clicking on the picture or clicking on this link!
Ooof, you’ve hit where it hurts. The Coen Brothers and Robert Johnson? What monumental comparisons. I assure you I don’t deserve them but, man oh man, does it feel good. Thank you. Thank you so much.
Great, now I’m sitting here daydreaming about one of my songs in a Coen Brothers film. Imagine that. Aaah.

Thank you. I adore Matt’s work on this song. I’m fortunate that he was part of this EP. We’re playing together at The Brooklyn Warehouse on 10/19, by the way.
Leo Kottke's rendition of “Girl from the North Country” always hits me hard.
Q:É adorável escuta-lo cantar em qualquer idioma, mas particularmente, em português é encantador por causa do seu sotaque (por vezes, engraçado, pois a maneira de você falar "chorar", "mesmo", "sou" parece um carioca falando). Espero poder ouvir novas gravações suas.
Ah, obrigado. É tão bom que os brasileiros parecem gostar do meu sotaque. Eu tento não ter sotaque quando canto, mas não consigo evitá-lo. Eu sou, afinal de contas, um porto-riquenho cantando em português.
