Road To Redemption is my 3rd official project and 1st EP. This is my most honest and personal collection of work. It's about my struggle to break through the lack of support with music I felt in my early years, which led to me doubting my own abilities.
Road To Redemption is about realizing you can't lose your identity amidst the watchful and sometimes critical eyes of others.
It's about realizing that in trying to prove yourself to others, you ultimately have to prove to yourself you are what you believe yourself to be.
It's about finding your voice and redeeming yourself.
This project was over 2 years in the making. I worked on it on and off as inspiration came and went, and also had a derailment when my place was looted and the robber stole my computer--taking a lot of my sweat and heart in the process.
Thank you to everyone who has supported me in one way or another, and not supported me in one way or another. And thank you to every artist who has inspired me. None of this happens without you.
