Ricochet has finally been recorded and mixed in its final form. A song about the unimaginable trajectories that life takes as we careen through it and against it, Ricochet features a guest appearance by Jordan Taggart of Taggart Transcontinental.


"This industrial rap track blossoms into a melodic alternative tune. Embodies a Blink-182/Linkin Park vibe with its metallic, hard-hitting vocals and loud electric guitar." "...a brash blast of powerful vocals." ~ The Music Feed

"I like everything about this track. Great lyrics, a constant evolution of the music and the vocals are very good with a different touch with the brief rap. Very original music from start to finish. ~ MuzicReviews.com

I've had my share of fun, I'm like a gun
Shooting at my destiny, I kill it so it don't become
I got the girl, there was nothing to it
I found the bird to my bullet
Your designs to fly away, my wish that I might

Ricochet, would come true, On the day that I lost you
All that I had left to dream, Songs unheard and lands unseen
Only way left to go, down the road I did not know
Your fire at my stake, and a heart that will not break

Today, I will not break today
And should the call come I'll be on my way
In love and war, all is fair, everybody shooting away
The intention's in the aim, the consequence is in the ricochet
