“every time I listen to music and it reaches my heart I’m inspired to recreate the experience with my own story or expose a listener to another perspective of whatever message the original song writer must have conveyed through music. I wanted to reach people with a message but did not want to take them away from sounds they were already familiar with and so I made covers. In the process i was able to introduce my own sound and i strongly believe there’s something on the project from everyone. So dear listener, i took out time to make you music and I hope it reaches you…”
