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.
For that, I will forever thank them
for the support and clarity
in what these songs have become.
This is my absolute best work
in speaking to my feelings and the present truth
At times it was a terrifying process
but now that it is done,
it was all worth it.
These songs can be personally interpreted
and through this abstraction,
I feel the music becomes universal.
I can only hope together
find a similar connectedness.
Thank you for your love and support,
it keeps me going.
