A personal note:

Between my last record and this record, I lived in a funeral home, released a legit worldwide viral hit song, dated two dudes, worked and toured with Toki Wright, went to the hospital for mental health twice, got a full-ride scholarship to a music school that no longer exists, dropped out, was drunk for like 5 years... and then I got sober. A big part of why I consciously got sober (besides knowing I was gonna die) was to be able to create; getting drunk leaves no time for anything but getting drunk. I know one of my first thoughts when I walked into treatment was: I can't wait to write again. Not, I can't wait to be healthy now, I can't wait to lose weight, I can't wait to get my shit together -- it was I can't wait to write again.

For this record, I found the right band, the right people, and I owe a lot to them. I don't remember our first few band practices. And then all of a sudden I was sober and crying, intensely vulnerable, and they were my best friends. They're still here, and they still wanna make this record. There’s a lot of pain in this record, but there’s also that joy -- of finding those kindred spirits, of reigniting that lost love, of just creating something that means something to me. I can’t wait to share "Non Compos Mentis" with you, and I hope you’ll consider helping us make it real.

Risks and challenges

Making music in 2018 is beautiful and necessary work. *Releasing* music in 2019, though, is terrifying. The landscape has shifted so much: traditional methods of promotion no longer work, old networks have dissolved, and there’s just so much sound and fury everywhere -- how do you break through it? I think the answer is community: build authentic relationships, be honest and generous, and ask for help when you need it. That’s not just for music, either.
