came into this project fed up with the lack of passion in my music
scene, and just with a majority of music in general. I don't want the
"songwriter that writes and plays and produces music on his own without
the aid of a producer or label" to die. I also feel that Christian music
isn't honest or real enough. I feel that we hide behind barriers in our
music because that is what "radio christians" want to hear. Because we
are afraid of offending someone with our views on life or society. I am a
Christian and do this project in hopes of touching others lives and
glorifying God through music, but I will NEVER be fake or pull punches
on what I need to say and express musically. This EP is written with
themes of growing up. Some songs (Uncage, Ribcage, 401KKK) are a look at
my personal life and the desire to become free and make a difference.
Last Words is written from the perspective of Christ in his last
moments. Pastor Passion Crime is a scathing look at corrupt
churches/pastors. Storybook I and II tell the story of an insane author
that gets attached to one of his characters, and the events that follow.
This is a diverse EP that will hopefully draw a number of emotions. I
wanted to mix elements of indie piano style, with electronic vibes and
post-hardcore elements as well. I wrote, programmed, recorded, and sang
all the parts for this CD. It is truly Gabe Reasoner. The biggest theme I
want people to take away from this release is that when we die, we
leave something behind on earth. That can be small or large, good or
bad, but we always leave an impression and memory. Why not make it huge.
