You may or may not know this, but I make music. For reasons I cannot explain, I am much better off by myself than I am with others when it comes to writing and recording music. I guess you could say it is something that I consider very personal in my life. It's a release. It is a ship in my life that allows me to sail through hard oceans and stay above the water. All of this is why I released an entire full-length album (Basement/Apartment) last year and didn't care that only 15 people would listen to it despite the fact that the album was over two years in the making. I just didn't care, but it wasn't always that way for me.
I used to make music for people to listen to and like, which would make me feel better in return. Basically, music was a self-esteem builder. I only recorded songs and showed them to the world so they could tell me how great I was at it. I really, really, REALLY wanted people to see me as one of the best artists in the Detroit area. It would take a good long while to realize that I'm not a great musician, which is where I am right now. I had the music right, but the reason wrong.
Now, I don't care who listens. However, there are a small handful of individuals who truly enjoy my music and look forward to hearing my material. I am forever thankful for you all, and I'm hoping you know who you are. My next two projects are dedicated to you.
With all of that out of the way, I would like to announce my next two albums, which will be my last. For reasons I can't quite explain, these two albums will be the last pieces of music I ever record. There is a very slight and unlikely chance that this may not be true in the end, but after this, I don't see myself making music. I don't know. Anyway...
