Carver Frazier When I was in Jazz Band with Joel back in AHS I always knew he was one of the most talented musicians I ever met. He showcases a unique sound that is influenced by a plethora of different artists, yet is a distinct product of the San Luis Obispo music scene. Favorite track: Coddled ^ & Beneath.

Track Name: Up in the Trees
I am up in the trees
when somebody
takes a shot that hits me
and goes right through

on my way down

I am up here alone
I'm on my own
look at me; I'm alive
take my time

on my way down

I see you
and you're looking at me
I say what is this heart
that refuses to beat
when it's stuck in my chest
like the rugged edged shot
no, you're just like the rest
what more do you got

the book of life
has a cover that's torn
and I look inside
all the edges are worn
I'm beginning to feel
like the sum of my parts
from my head to my heels
in my mind and my heart
Track Name: Coddled ^ & Beneath
"/4-@!£\f ª§¢˙ƒ∆"

is that really how it's supposed to be?
coddled up and beneath

the softest things you never touch

"†¶•©£ #***"

you laugh at me; I said to much

I thought of it all the way
I thought of it all the way
