**STRETCH GOALS! WE MADE IT
Writing this from Korea! Sitting next to my twin brother actually - and will be spending the next few weeks doing some soul searching...which will probably lead to inspiration for the new album.
Thank you so much to everyone who has donated! I made my goal with a little time to spare. Really appreciate everyone's time and energy. Can't wait to get to share songs with ya'll.
Now that we're at the stretch goal - it'll help me produce possibly even more songs for the album + assist with extra things like artwork, promotions, and maybe even a music video. Please feel free to keep sharing and donating - every little bit still counts.
I'm excited to share that i'm in the midst of working on my second album - tentatively scheduled to release Fall 2016. It's been something i've been working hard on for the past 2 years - and will be a progression of the last album I released, "Stuntman," both in themes and sound.
I've already started recording + producing and need your help to finish everything up! Funds will go directly to helping finish recording, mixing, mastering, producing, promotions, artwork, etc. Would love to have you join in that journey - and i'm grateful to each and everyone of you.
The album will be a mixture of hip hop, alternative rock, and electronic and will focus on themes that i believe that are relatable and self reflective. They'll push notions of identity, race, adoption, and self.
