about

I’ve heard it’s bad form to preamble your work before it’s consumed. Oh well.

This album’s track listing is constructed as a story. I won’t give it away but I guess the story of this album is kind of like the story of its making. I started work on this album in 2013 during a difficult time and finished it in 2015; then I shelved it for five years with all my insecurities and fears. 2020 has come around, and with all that it has brought, I decided to dig the album out and give it a listen. In 2020, I can no longer hear the process or the imperfections or remember where some of the sounds or samples came from. Time has made it new. The only thing I hear now is an old version of myself dealing with his insecurities and fears. In song. I owe it to him now to release it into the universe and move on. So, here it is. Maybe you hear yourself in it too.

It is available on Spotify, Apple Music, Saavn, and other streaming services. It’s best listened with headphones and a mindset to go on a journey ;). And it’s FREE. I hope it offers peace and solace in these difficult times.

This album could not be possible without a little help from my friends. Thank you so much @Matthew Rulli, @Rajen Mistry, @Hemant Badya, and @Andrew Nguyen.

Spread the word. Stay safe, stay healthy. And enjoy.
