about

So after what feels like an eternity of recording these songs, I can now happily say that my band William's Cave's EP "Orange Sun" is finally complete. The last seven months of making the EP has been an awesome ride and I have learned not just a hell of a lot about music but also a lot about myself over this time. I remember very clearly strumming my guitar and writing the lyrics in my bedroom (as I often do), inspired by life on a roadtrip and in the villages I stayed at in Fiji, envisioning putting the tracks together and holding the EP in my hands. I was going for a bold, positive, and oceanic kinda vibe reflective of my experiences and headspace at the time. The Fijian families I stayed with were really the happiest and some of the most generous people I've ever met, and this combined with the natural oceanic beauty of the place really inspired a lot of the writing on the EP. So in a sense this EP captures who I was as a person about a year and a half ago. Many times during the recording of the EP I was struggling to connect with the adventurous spirit and free nature that inspired it(you know when you start to feel like you're stuck in the same rut and as you're growing up you're losing a part of your self?) but recently something has changed within me and I feel I am reconnecting with this part of my self again.
Of course, I'm not the only member of the band and so there is definitely other musical influence throughout the EP.. Patrick Brinkley, my brother by blood and a well-rounded musical legend co-wrote some parts, helped arrange much of the instrumentation and played all keys, bass, drum and backing vocal parts on the record. He also did the amazing artwork (which completely captures the vibe). And Steven Reinhardt, who recorded, mixed and produced the EP. I have learned that collaboration is one of the most important things to have in music, and will continue to strive for this in future musical endeavours. To me, collaboration shows it's about the heart of the music and not the ego.
You can purchase the EP via the link for $10, all proceeds will be going towards two of the villages I stayed at in Fiji in early 2015- Wainawaqa and Naivuvini, which were hit by Cyclone Winston earlier in the year. It may not amount to much but I would like to think it would help in some kind of way :) Thanks to Mirren Allen for helping me out with this!
Finally, I don't want to sound like I'm taking myself too seriously; I know the music isn't perfect (esp some of my vocal performances lol) but music isn't really about perfection anyway I guess.. I'm always gonna be making it and I feel we have come a long way on this one.
Much love!
Dom

Track Name: Breathe With Me
Floating face up in the sea,
this world really works for me
are you joining in the dance?
Watch it, raise it, bring it home,
Stop it, chase it, claim your own,
Land amongst this great nest

Energy run through the trees
hold together seven seas;
see the glow outside
Energy run through your feet
relax and just breathe with me
Feel the glow inside

And wonder where you are in space
for one moment

I was standing on a peak
of things that had cut so deep
the view from there was beautiful
energy ran through my feet
I relaxed and just breathed it in
letting go and moving on

But its still so hard to say goodbye to
those that you love, to those that you love,
to those that you love, ooohhhh

Never had I found a way
into my soul
I think I finally found a way
into my soul

By taking time to grow
enjoy the moment
Track Name: Water's Edge
Wishing for tomorrow,
eyes closed today
watching for the sunrise
at the end of a day
mind low then high,
spirit breaking free
body in my bed with no
such disease

She set me on fire,
but didn't speak my name
time cannot change
how I see today
the world turns so slow,
still can never say goodbye
darkness just a shadow,
covering the light

just sit on by the water's edge and then you'll see
things can be so simple if you let them be
just talking with my best friend on the way things are
and surrounding myself with the love I know is in my heart
Watch the sky in front of you, you'll no longer be dreaming

You said stop thinking of the future,
when you're here with me today
Your mind is your guidance
your heart will find a way
there's many worlds out there,
fill yours with surprise
oh my little one
won't you open up your eyes

just sit on by the water's edge and then you'll see
things can be so simple if you let them be
just talking with my brother on the way things are
and surrounding myself with the love I know is in my heart
Watch the sky in front of you, you'll no longer be dreaming
Track Name: Roadtripping
I'm gonna go roadtripping
gonna pack my things, I'll soon be leaving
I'm gonna bring an old suitcase,
got my favorite songs and a pillow case
With all that usual stuff
I'll bring my new guitar
so I can strum it in the car
cause I just need a change

I'm gonna go roadtripping
gonna pack my things, I'll soon be leaving
I'm gonna go somewhere, where the sun is hot and I can find some fresh air
I'll light a funny thing
by the campfire at night and then I'll sing
at least I can see the stars

The stars, finally I see the stars
at least I see the stars
Finally I see the stars

I'm gonna leave the bay,
say goodbye to the world that I know everyday
these new plans are here to stay
and the music just shows us the way

We're gonna gonna go roadtripping
gonna pack our things we'll soon be leaving, yeah

Yeah we're gonna go
where we can see

The stars, finally I see the stars
at least I see the stars
Finally I see the stars

oh start the fire!

Then I'm gonna come back to Melbourne
where I can't see the stars cause the lights keep glowing
a little thing called light pollution
but I think that I finally found a solution
I'm gonna go roadtripping
gonna pack my things I'll soon be leaving
where I can see the stars
Track Name: Orange Sun
Orange sun, you took a long time for me to find you,
I'm sorry I denied you
and orange sun I know you know that the world can turn so fast
And I'm just happy I can love you
Cause all my love had gone for a little while,
and if your love should leave for a little while
Keep searching through the dark

and when the night turns to day
and the Winter passes away
and the roadblocks fall away
in the rain that has built up inside you
all this time

or you can worry until you cry
you can sleep until you die
or you can search until you find
that Orange Sun

Oh woodland you have been fun, but I think its time I'm leaving
thanks for showing me the way
It's funny what can happen when you surround yourself with people
who love and learn and grow everyday
and you took a while for me to follow you
and I'm sorry I would hide you

Cause the night has now turned to day,
and the trees have shown us the way
and the roadblocks fall away
and your world is full of colour now,
and everything finally connects
from your state of happiness and,
all that love that has built up inside you
all your life

or you can worry until you cry,
you can search until you die
just as long as you find
just as long as you find
just as long as you find
that Orange Sun

Change, oh we're heading for a change in plan
and your world will reveal a better face than now
and the birds will sing and your soul will stand proud
and the gloom of the moon will fade away
with the light of this new day
don'y you know that life can always begin anew
