All songs are purposefully unedited versions and some of the topics will be tough to swallow. Nonetheless, I find it necessary to leave the music unadulterated for the sake of the message. I challenge you to hear the struggles and really listen intently to the lyrics before you. Only through listening, humility, and a willingness to be uncomfortable can we achieve a right understanding of solidarity, empathy, and inclusive love.
2016 was simultaneously the best and worst year in music in recent memory. We lost two of the greatest innovators and musicians of popular music in Prince and David Bowie, we lost a legendary emcee in Phife Dawg, and even one of the history’s most iconic songwriters in Leonard Cohen, just to name a few of 2016’s losses.
