About

The reason that I want to record another album is for the people. Ever since I first set out to become an artist, people have given me the inspiration even when I found myself uninspired. Everybody that I see on the streets, at parties, at events and even online, always ask me when I’m going to make another album.

I was given a gift I have sometimes overlooked because of my own personal circumstances. I have been in the background for too long and allowed the industry to dictate what is possible. In this age of new media and technology, the need for true, honest music and meaningful messages is great. The people must dictate what is necessary, and I must continue to do my part.

This is about more than just music, it's about the message we deliver off the mic. What we teach generations to come about how to live. It's time to change the direction once again. I won't sit back and let our future self-destruct. I must once again help dictate the climate of our actions and behavior. I need your help to do that.

Backing this project will not only give you an album, it will enable me to go out and spread a much needed message to our future. It will show the recording industry that we control our own thoughts and actions. My message has always been one of self worth and pride. It's time to remind us of who we truly are — a message I will take with me on every step of this journey.

Walk with me. It's The Return Of King Edward.

Risks and challenges

Creating good music and providing positive images can be a challenge in this day and age, but with your help, we are prepared to do whatever is necessary to make "The Return of King Edward" happen. It's not just about the music, it's about promoting AND preserving the culture.
