This "blues" is based on an unusual 8-note scale containing these notes: E-F-G-A#-B-C-C#-D-E, so although it has a 12-bar structure, the chords are a bit strange.

Jump in the River is an etude featuring 4 against 5 polyrhythms. It begins and ends in Eb Lydian, and is in C minor in between. The title is a phrase I heard recently. It was mentioned in reference to imagining the music is already flowing and you're just joining in, in order to start at the correct tempo. To me, the idea of jumping into flowing waters is a beautiful and multilayered metaphor that applies to overcoming fear and anxiety and not holding yourself back from doing the things you long to do, even if those things scare you. Like entering the Tiny Desk Contest.

The Lovelorn Lobster is a song from 1897 with lyrics by Joseph W. Herbert. I wrote original music to his poignant lyrics about love between a lobster and a piscatorial maiden going terribly awry. A timeless, classic song for Valentine’s Day, or any occasion.
Composed by Stacy Fahrion, and performed by Rachael Teixeira, vocals, and Stacy Fahrion, piano.
