I've never been more terrified to release a project. Grief Creature is my life's work. A collection of the best songs I've ever written, paired with poems and beautiful orchestration. In confidence with loved ones, I refer to this album as my masterpiece.
This album has taken 5 years and gone through 20 different incarnations; different titles, release dates, multiple versions of songs, producers, studios, poems, features, maybe partnering with a label, maybe locking it in a vault because every track is really scary and vulnerable. As terrifying as releasing this album is, I know how important it has been for my own healing, and I believe it might help other people who deal with the same kind of trauma and experiences that I have.
Grief Creature is 17 tracks. I wrote & produced all of them. I composed string quartets, I programmed drums, I spent days just trying to find the perfect sound for one small section of one song, I brought in the best musicians I know. I spent over 250 hours in the studio.
I listen to these songs almost every day. Not necessarily for mixing notes or for production tweaks, but because they've been a part of my healing process. There are songs that have calmed me down from panic attacks, songs that remind me I don't want to die, songs that sit with me when I might feel like I do. These songs have been my best friends over the last couple years. And I think I'm ready to share them with you.
