I don’t write music to have that one hit song.
I don’t create videos in hopes of becoming an overnight phenomenon on YouTube.
I don’t take pictures so people will think I’m pretty in hopes they will listen to my music.
I most definitely did not build, create, and run my own show here in hopes that you just might purchase a t-shirt.
T-shirts fade after endless washes. Pretty faces are easy to come by with the touch of an airbrush. I see at least 10 YouTube videos a day and can barely remember any of them. Hit songs eventually fall off the charts.
I write music and exploit my thoughts through different mediums because I have a need to be heard, and an inherent need for things to be right and just. I believe that if in your core you know you have a message for the world to hear, and it burns in your innermost being, pulling at your every waking moment…you will most definitely find a way to send it. You WILL find a way to reach people using the gifts and talents that you were blessed with, and if possible, you’ll stop at nothing less than every last person on this earth.
I will never sign a record deal with a label that believes in a hit song, rather than the entire picture. I was created to question the norm, patterns, and sequences that cause us to live in mediocrity, and find a way to move popular culture in a direction that encourages everyone love themselves, while being respectful of who others are as well. Music is merely my medium to do so.
I crave substance, knowledge, and originality. I need it to breathe. I need it to create.
I wish the current landscape of music industry was “into” creating music that inspires positive and intelligent CHANGE.
Change is so much larger than a hit song or a t-shirt. Change creates longevity, promise, and hope.
Change is Michael Jackson. Change is Garth Brooks. Change is Prince. Change is Madonna. Change is the Dixie Chicks. Change is U2. Change is Johnny Cash. Change is Elvis Presley.
Artists who stand for something, are respected, and have the ability to have heavy and substantial influence.
I want to fall head over heels for new, different, and INSPIRED. Artists, stay true to who you are and don’t let anyone persuade you otherwise. No one can be a better you except for you.
Have faith in knowing that ashes can be fertile soil to build a successful dream.
I will never make music to sell you a t-shirt…rather, I make music to sell change, that will inspire everyone to be a better version of themselves.
