POST LIFE MUSIC is a deeply personal musical exploration. It encompasses so many musical classifications that I have simply labeled the music
contained within as "post life music." It is fundamentally about my
thoughts on love, death, and the potential for rebirth.
It aggravates me as so many tracks draw lyrical inspiration from the
memory of my sister's death, and how that resonates so fervently with me
years later. So many recording sessions were spent intoxicated, tired,
and in depressive states to reach this vantage point.
I long to escape. The perceived and often surrealistic "escape" so often
fluctuates within my mind. Often I submerge myself in the thought of
suicide, and have the anti-social and depressive tendencies that tend to
come paired with such thoughts. Yet, on other occasions, I see so
I dream of the muck and what we call love. For a moment here and there, I
am satisfied by these thoughts. But I am always returned to ground zero
as I reflect on the reality that all love will die, all sadness will
die, all death will die. Love is a slave to death. The power of love is
temporary, and is perhaps most beautiful because of this simple
characteristic. I have known love and now know what it is to long for
love in it's physical absence.
I am tired of the convention that an album of music must adhere to an
extremely narrow view of the world. Too many artists play with singular
ideas when they have so much potential for more.
Open your ears and close your eyes. All of this shit is meaningless. And I love it because of this.
