Four years ago I lost my way.
I had just wrapped my last US & Canada tour and was feeling burnt out and unfulfilled. I was struggling to figure out the best next move for my music and because of that I took a step back from social media to begin an extensive search within myself and make sense of the disconnect I felt with the world.
During this time I became extremely insecure in my abilities and I completely lost all belief in myself as an artist. The artist I wanted to be seemed like a faraway dream, and I questioned whether it would ever be within reach. At this point, I knew it was time to take a step back from music until I found the passion and vision I once held for my art. I owed it not only to myself, but to every single person who took even just a moment to listen to my music over the years.
The last couple years have been an interesting time for me as I journeyed to find my way again. I graduated from college, moved to Los Angeles, experimented with different styles of music and ways of life. I cut my hair off and went through an awful spikey hair phase (it shall not happen again), grew my hair back out, worked multiple dead-end jobs, gained lifelong friends along the way, all while waiting for some great calling to come back into my life.
I have to thank a fan who saw me at a bar one night in LA and asked what I was doing with myself. At that moment, I realized that at the core of it all, I was waiting to make the leap back into music out of fear, and I had to stop letting all these songs I had written just sit on an untouched hard drive in my room. I needed to dust myself off, get up, and keep moving forward in the pursuit of living my dream. I needed to share my music once again with the world!
I realized in life you can’t wait for something to happen. There is no great calling or some magical stroke of luck that will make you successful. You have to seize the day and make your dreams happen.
That being said, I am happy and proud to announce that I am back and will be releasing a ton of music in the months to come!!! I want to thank each of you who have reached out to me over the years and let me know you still listen and support my artistry. It means the world to me and has kept me going all this time!
What’s to come is a brand new beginning for me and my music. Our music. I invite you guys to continue with me on this adventure. You’re not gonna want to miss it.
