Paper and ink: my release into another reality. This is where it all begins. Every thought, every belief I hold dear, every memory, every change and revelation. I write to escape and I sing to cross back into the threshold. God is my life, music is my gift, and I use this gift to express my beliefs with any means necessary.
I have been a singer/songwriter in the alternative electronic music genre for several years, and I strive to make my lyrics strongly express my beliefs in a poetic metaphorical manner. Rather it be religious, political, or environmental, I’ve always put my values and ideas in the spotlight.
I love writing music this way; it makes me feel like I created something with meaning, something people can relate to. I never want to stop; this is what I’m meant for. I’m meant for something more then the average life, something more then the expected lifestyle.
My lyrics are meant as a spiritual release, but my music is meant as a creative reconciliation. I feel like what I released onto pen and paper becomes synchronized into action when the music is made. Everything comes together; everything makes sense. I label myself as an alternative electronic music artist because not only is my music electronic, it’s also literally alternative, or in another sense of the word, different. I am a naturally unique person, and I apply this to my music all the time. However, there is a difference between being unique and being too bizarre. Personally I love being bizarre, and sometimes my music is, but sometimes just being unique and not crossing the line can be just as powerful.
I believe I can go far with this, I believe I can turn this dream into a reality, I believe I can make a difference by doing what I love. Nothing can stop me now; I’ve already dominated the baby steps of my path. The wind is blowing and it’s time for me to let myself go and fly away with it. I need to trust in something bigger then I am, push myself through this high tide ocean of broken dreams, break though the barrier, and on the other side I can finally say it’s no longer a dream… It’s a reality.
