EK-D-SiS-The process of shedding an old skin to
to facilitate growth.
Every day I wake up and I try to be better than I was.
I shed yesterday’s skin,
I try to find balance
in a world that almost always feels like it’s about to fall off it’s axis.
In 2016 I took a step back
and I rewired my focus.
During this time
I was fraught with
illusions of pressure, frustration, failure and fear
There were day’s
when I was swimming in a dark ocean of self-doubt.
But as quickly as those thoughts appeared,
I let them go.
I gathered resilience.
I willed those thoughts to leave my mind,
And I began to feel a shift.
I forgot about trying to win the race,
and I started to enjoy the journey.
I gave up trying to control my external world
and I let it be as it is.
During the demoing process,
I pulled five songs from the batch
that compromises my next LP.
and I decided to release them as an EP.
I envision these songs
like a bridge from my previous methods of working,
to something new and evolved.
I gave up the illusion of control
and I invited a like-minded collaborator and
my best friend into my songwriting process.
They challenged every word and idea
I brought forward,
and in doing so helped me narrow the scope of my vision.
