The creation of this album was a long process. Not because of complicated recording techniques or studio wizardry but because of a lot of personal struggle and growth that was needed to pull myself together and allow myself to open to world. Even though this is an instrumental album, these songs say a lot in terms of various points in my life. I have never been good with words or talking to people, so I let sound and music do that for me. (I am very aware of how cliche that sounds, but it is what it is).
The earliest song on here (Nothing Will Ever Be The Same) was originally written and recorded back in 2010, and then re-imagined a couple years later…2015 I think?… And for the next decade I battled with my self-doubt, anxiety, and fear of “not being good enough” to release.
There have been so many supportive people along this journey that kept pushing me to make music and put myself out there… and I can’t thank you all enough. But special credit goes to my Mom for always being my biggest fan and constantly encouraging me to do what I love. I also want to dedicate this to my Dad who showed me what true strength is. He worked so hard throughout is life to give us the best he could and fought so hard at the end of it to try and be there with us. I miss him every day.
