Finishing an album is one of the most satisfying feelings a creator can experience. Over the course of the next 6 weeks or so, I will have the pleasure of doubling down on the experience, as I have 2 projects completed or near completion and ready to be released. A few weeks ago, I dropped the lead singles from A Memoir Called Noir, my upcoming rap album (and I recently dropped a third single from the album as well). At this point, I am releasing the lead 3 singles from the upcoming instrumental album, This Town Has Turned To Dust. Check them out, share them, and all that jazz.

One of the purest senses of joy I experience is releasing new art into the world. It’s been since late 2015 that I released any music, one of the longest gaps in my music making career. I spent 2016 recovering from a wave of personal setbacks, and 2017 was focused on getting momentum going in my film career. During both of those years, however, I never stopped writing, and as Fall of 2017 approached, I was beginning to form my upcoming release : A Memoir Called Noir.
Recording has gone smoothly, and I am now in the process of mixing songs while I wait for a handful of guest verses to arrive. In the meantime, I thought I would begin the promotional rollout, hence the release of the lead singles : Kickstart, a song about personal responsibility in the light of an ever-changing world; and Fifth Estate Amendment, a song about learning to be a wise risk-taker. These are extremely simplified explanations, but hopefully, you will be able to make your own connections to the material. Expect A Memoir Called Noir no later than March, hopefully, and then be on the lookout for the instrumental album also to be released in 2018, This Town Has Turned To Dust.
