STYLE: JAZZY, INDIE, SOUL, ORGANIC

I AM A NATURAL-BORN STORYTELLER. I STARTED WRITING THIS PARTICULAR COLLECTION OF STORIES IN JANUARY OF 2018 AND I'VE PERFORMED THEM IN EUCALYPTUS GROVES, ON DESERT STAGES, BUSTLING STREETS, TENNESSEE LIVING ROOMS, AND POLISHED RECORDING STUDIOS. IN 2020, I STARTED WORKING WITH PRODUCER, DESHAWN BIGD, WHO HAS WORKED WITH ARTISTS LIKE KEISHA COLE AND TAMARA JADE. WE HAVE CRAFTED AN EP THAT IS DEEPLY PERSONAL AND UNIVERSAL.
 
ALL OF THESE SONGS HAVE BEEN WRITTEN, ARRANGED AND PERFORMED BY ME. SOMETHING THAT IS IMPORTANT TO THIS WORK IS THAT EACH SONG SHOULD BE AN  IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE, WITH ITS OWN AESTHETIC AND SONIC ENVIRONMENT. EACH SONG HAS ITS OWN DISTINCT COLOR AND THEME, BUT IT ULTIMATELY ALL FLOWS TOGETHER INTO ONE STORY. IT'S A TRAVEL STORY OF SELF-DISCOVERY, BEING AUTHENTIC, MAKING MISTAKES, GRIEVING LOSS. THERE ARE HIGHS AND LOWS IN THIS ALBUM, JUST LIKE ANY OTHER STORY. 

THE VISION:

THE EP WILL BE A COLLAGE OF SOUNDS, A MERGING OF JAZZ LYRICISM AND FORM WITH MODERN ENGINEERING TECHNIQUES AND ELECTRONIC TEXTURES. THE FULL ALBUM WILL FLOW TOGETHER INTO ONE CONTINUOUS PIECE WITH SPOKEN WORD POETRY INTERLUDES. AS A VISUAL ARTIST, I WILL BE USING SOME OF THE TECHNIQUES YOU SEE HERE AND ON MY WEBSITE - MOTION GRAPHICS, ILLUSTRATION, DESIGN, PHOTOGRAPHY, TO CREATE AN IMMERSIVE NARRATIVE.

LYRIC SAMPLES

ALWAYS ON MY MIND

WASHING YOUR HAIR IN THE KITCHEN SINK. RADIO ON SO WE DON'T HAVE TO THINK. I KNOW YOU'RE STRONG, YOU DON'T WANT ME TO SEE YOUR PAIN. PASSING THROUGH A FAMILIAR SPACE, WHY DOES EVERYTHING FEEL OUT OF PLACE? HOW CAN THE WORLD ACT AS IF NOTHING HAS CHANGED? WHEN YOU'RE ALWAYS ON MY MIND.

SIREN SONG

SOMETIMES I FEEL LIKE I'M TIME TRAVELING. THE TIDES OF MY BLOODLINES ARE WEARING THIN, SHIPWRECKED HIPS HAVE PLAYED THROUGH THEIR MELODIES. PIANO PLAYED A CARELESS WAVE RIGHT NEXT TO ME. 

PEACH PIT

PEACH PIT, IS THAT YOUR CODE NAME? THOUGH IT'S NOT CODE WHEN I SAY THAT I LOVE YOU AND I ROOT FOR YOU EVERYDAY. ROOTING FOR YOUR GROWTH, WITNESS TO YOUR GRACE, YOU GOT A WILLINGNESS FOR FIRE, BABE.

GETAWAY (BAG)

I GOT MY SHOES AND MY BAG, I'M NOT FOING HALF BAD. I GOT MY SHOES AND MY BAG READY AND PACKED. PLEASE DON'T GET IN MY WAY, PLEASE DON'T ASK ME TO STAY. NOT GETTING TOO ATTACHED BABE.
