I am so blessed and honored to finally say that my very first full length solo album, an album that has been in the making since September of 2014, is finally being released to the world. I can't believe this dream of mine since I was seven is becoming real! I feel this album is a true reflection of me and my life. From the greatest moments in my life, like finally seeing my dreams take flight, falling in love, or just a day with friends. To darker times like my battle with social anxiety and insomnia, acceptance of lost, and racism. Every line has its purpose, every inflection is a reaction, and every note is creating setting. This project was created in full by me, along with the help of incredible friends and family who believed in my art and without, this album wouldn't exist.
I was on my way to where I truly wanted to be in life. But at the same time, my mental well being was in jeopardy. I had the biggest decision in my life to make: Let this pain and frustration of all the voices telling me to fail and all the sleepless nights thinking of the people I had lost and the loneliness I felt conquer me? Or was I going to continue to grow and give my life to God as I pursued my passion and let love and this music I have be my ultimate weapon.
Crossroads - a point at which a crucial decision must be made that will have far-reaching consequences.
