My family, my family, my family! New Beginnings!
It’s been a loooooooong time, but I’m back. For those of you who don’t know, my family just relocated to California. I haven’t really been pushing the music like that due to getting settled in, getting over jet lag, starting a new job, and everything else that comes along with moving. Now we’re pretty much settled and I can actually put some time into the music again and do what I love to do. I’m wrapping up the album, not really wrapping it up, but back working on the album, and it’ll be pushed back slightly but we’re still on schedule for a summer release. I’m extremely excited about it considering the reviews and radio spins Brake Lights has garnered.
I was nervous about moving though. For one, I don’t like flying. Two, I’m scared of heights. Three, I’m a Georgia boy through and through and always wanted to represent for my city and bring a new sound to the area. I was scared that I was going to have to start all over again, re-branding myself, meeting new people, and of course that’s going to be a task in itself considering my work schedule, and truthfully, I’m 30 now so I don’t have the energy or the time I had when I was 23 building my brand. But I accepted it for what it is and I’m willing to put forth that effort to make it happen.
Now making new music, with a new sound, in a new state, I believe that I’m on track in producing something great that will last for ages! I want to encourage everyone that new starts are difficult and sometimes scary, but put your best foot forward and make it happen. We have to understand that in business and any aspect of life, we have to be prepared to move in the direction that the wind is going in. Don’t fight the wind. That’s an uphill battle. As Bruce Lee said once, “Be Water”. Water adapts to whatever is holding it, but it’s still one of the most powerful forces on earth once it gets moving.
Let’s finish this year out strong. I love you and enjoy your weekend!
