A New Me was written based on some recent events in my life. The songs were ways of me getting through some of the very extreme adversity in my life. Without music, love, friends and family I would have not made it this far. This album uncovers some deep expressions and is a treat for any listener who enjoys piano, romantic tones and symphonic layers. Uncovering pieces of your life is not easy, and working through things can be so much easier, when you have music to listen to.
I went through some deception that I lived with for years and being naive is not an easy thing in hind site, but when you are in the middle of the storm, all you can do is worry about trying to get out. When you are caught up in life, you have to take a step back, you have to access the situation and do as much as you possibly can even though it hurts the whole time you are doing it. That is true with this album, that the brightest things in my life turned into a perfect storm and left me stranded. Without a paddle I had to seek and find and pray for how I would address the situation, who I would lean on, who I could trust, etc. If you listen to this music you will see a mix of things.
You will notice some advanced syncopations and beautiful landscapes of sound. These landscapes will paint a picture and from time to time, I would recommend you light some candles, grab a book, or meditate and assess where you are at. The outcome will amaze you as it did me. This music is such that each time you listen to the song you may reflect on a different picture, a different landscape of your life. Lean in, listen in and reflect.
It's a day like all days it tends to illuminate and alter our times.
