2017 has been an extraordinary year for me, full of a lot of significant personal change. I’ve grown a lot, and learned a lot, and more so every week. It has also had its fair share of challenges, and at times it’s felt like a rollercoaster. When the rollercoaster heads down, as it does regularly, I remind myself, “Whatever comes, I’ll handle it, just keep moving forward”. It was a kind of mantra to reinforce resilience and perseverance.
And so throughout a year of challenges and change, I kept plugging away at my strange music, trying new sounds and influences, new instruments and styles. I pushed the limits, and after months of work, Always Forward is the result. It is a symbol of resilience and inner strength, a musical call to press forward, through the struggle, for the hope of life with God forever in heaven.
And since it’s brought me so much joy to create it, I freely share it with you. Thanks for supporting me. - Carlin
The entire EP was made using Logic Pro X, with one or two samples from Logic's library, as well as Drum Season's "Satellite Kite" kit.
Thanks to everyone who has supported me through this year, and thanks for supporting my music! - Carlin
