- Song/Album description: Again (Again -EP)
The song title Again was written to express the hurt and loneliness felt from an unhealthy relationship. Often you hear people say, “Sticks and stones may break your bones, but words will never hurt me,” well, yes, that is a good thing to say to help boost your self-esteem; however, realistically words can knock you down and have you hurting on the ground. I just thought about how lies from someone you really love really fells, and to be honest it doesn’t feel good at all, it’s like a knife to the chest.
- Anything else you’d like myself or the curators to know about you or your music?
As a Navy Veteran with 8 years under my belt, I’m often asked, why didn’t you stay in the military and retire? In response, I felt that I gave all that I could give to that particular part of my life. I am grateful for the opportunities presented to me to serve my country; however, my passion has always been music. My goal has always been to play an major part within the music industry and be instrumental in helping other artists be heard. There’s so many talented artists that currently serve and have served in the military and I think about them often, and how reaching my goal would be beneficial for so many other talented artists.
