I Can See You Through Your Mask

I don’t believe in coincidence. In fact, I recently saw a post online that sums up my beliefs on the subject matter. It says, “Coincidence is God’s way of remaining anonymous,” and I couldn’t agree more. The thing is, while we may not always have the reasons as to why a given occurrence is taking place, we can account for the fact that it is taking place in existence. The moment is real, and chances are there’s some form of a lesson, intention, or purpose in the event’s manifestation. Today is Sunday, June 6, 2021. To you that might not … Continue reading I Can See You Through Your Mask

Side Effects (Produced by PREMISE)

“Side effects takin’ over my brain and my mind…” Side Effects is a song that has literally been years in the making. Now that it has finally arrived, I hope that you will listen to it with open ears and an open mind. Maybe you can relate, maybe you can’t, but either way just know that it was written and recorded crying out from the depths of my soul. Shout out to all of the psych ward survivors and mental health warriors who feel me on this one. This one is dedicated to you. Check out my latest track Side … Continue reading Side Effects (Produced by PREMISE)

A Current Perspective On Reality

I am an expert in my own experience, that is what I can offer you. From what I have researched, where I have worked, the places I have volunteered, the things I have done and the places I have been, I have acquired knowledge and skill sets often with the intention of healing others. I am no expert on reality, but I can offer you the perspective of someone who has given it a lot of thought, both for interest purposes and for survival. Lately the media has had no choice but to report on many things it may not … Continue reading A Current Perspective On Reality

Exhibit A Released 5 Years Ago Today

The amount of courage that it takes to be able to even get to the moment where you are standing in front of a microphone in the recording studio can feel insurmountable. At least it did for me. I will never forget recording this song. I really wanted for the engineer to care about what we were creating. This was not only going to be my first single but the song touches on the very sensitive topic of when my friends and former classmates died in an avalanche on a school trip. Obviously it was a large task to ask … Continue reading Exhibit A Released 5 Years Ago Today

NEW MUSIC: Uncanny

We all know that relationship, you know, the one you get into because it fulfils some sort of fantasy? Well, maybe I just described every relationship to a certain extent, but you catch my drift. Years ago I was involved very briefly with someone with a striking resemblance to a celebrity crush. And, as you do, I wrote and recorded a song about the “situationship”. The relationship plays out in the lyrics of Uncanny from start to finish with an important message at the end of the track. Shoutout to Masta Ace and Jean Grae for always capturing my attention … Continue reading NEW MUSIC: Uncanny

DAY 25: Happy New Year!

‘Twas the evening before 2021, and all throughout the world… ah fuck it, this shit is over!!!! 2020 was supposed to be a year of milestones for a lot of us, and it turned out to be a collective turning point for all of us. The famous “pivot” mantra had me thinking of athletics and dancing more than it did my lifestyle strategy. And if anything, I just got pushed deeper into my love for creative pursuits and passion for both human rights and mental health. 2020 was a year marked with struggle in different ways for all of us … Continue reading DAY 25: Happy New Year!

DAY 17: Chess Moves

Years ago I recognized the need to create a brand for my artistry. Everyone in the industry has one, and so it felt as though the smartest thing to do was to pick a brand that would have the greatest longevity for my personality. I factored in things like happiness, my interests, and the sustainability of a persona. In the end, I couldn’t find anything except authenticity. I committed to speaking my truth as I knew to be at any given time. I committed to being myself. I committed to making music and art that was in my heart and … Continue reading DAY 17: Chess Moves

DAY 14: Sunday Vibes

Sunday mornings are for drinking tea, listening to music and sitting in bed until it is no longer in fashion to do so. Which means technically you can sit in bed all day. But, since there are things to get done and there is definitely food to be eaten, I will eventually be emerging from the comfort of my sheets and comfy blankets. Luckily for myself and fellow Montrealers, the temperature outside is mild so that means it is an optimal day for running errands. It is snowing all day but according to my iPhone the flurries stop in 42 … Continue reading DAY 14: Sunday Vibes

Verbal Jurisdiction: My Art, My Love, My Joy, My Music

The thing about putting out music is that you change. You evolve. Over time we grow and in my case as I have grown my mind has cemented. That might sound unattractive to some, but those who know mental anguish know that they may have prayed for that cement to finally come into place. I planned my structure, my mind was in ruins, and not by my own torch burning. COVID tested a lot of us, myself included, but I knew I was being confined to my own home…I had been through worse. I worried about the women and children … Continue reading Verbal Jurisdiction: My Art, My Love, My Joy, My Music

Silence Is NOT A Solution

We are living in a time where people are asking serious questions about our police forces. The Black Lives Matter movement has shed an incredible light on the unjust treatment of visible minorities at the hands of those who are supposed to serve and protect. I am not a visible minority but I have been on both sides of the spectrum. I have experienced police brutality in my own home, and I have also been saved by police. I am critical of anyone in a position of power, but especially those that abuse that role. However, I have been unable … Continue reading Silence Is NOT A Solution
