about

This is my first studio album, funded on Indiegogo by my family and friends. I'm forever grateful for the love and support I received to start this huge journey of being a professional musician.

It was recorded in Boston at Plaid Dog Recording over a little less than a year. It's only 6 songs, but it took a lot to get here.

I want to make music that truly speaks to people and uplifts their minds and souls, and this album represents a huge start in that.

"I will be what I will be" is one possible translation of Exodus 3:14. For me it is the promise of a new beginning to myself and those I love.

Track Name: Find
I was walkin down a highway
Just to find myself

Always searching never finding
Just the story of my life

Just the story of my life

Met a man he said he found the reason
Found the reason why

The reason why we're alive

It's love

So many problems no solutions
You'd think you're going insane

So much sufferin so much lackin
I think I know what we need

I think I know what we need

It's love

If you try you'll find

The story of your life
Track Name: Be
In your arms, I feel free
It’s where I am, Supposed to be

Every time, That I’m there
It’s like I’ve got, Not a single care

My mind Is clear
When I Am here

you give me peace, you give me calm
and sometimes you’re my Tiger balm

Wish I could, You know I would
Live up to all of your good

My soul Is free
When you’re With me
I want To be
To you as you are you me
Track Name: Fix It
I wake up in the morning and I ask myself
What's my hair doing What's my hair doing

There's so many things I gotta do today
But what's my hair doing What's my hair doing

Gotta fix it up Gotta fix it down
Cause you know when Im ready I ain't playin around

When you wake up in the morning do you ask yourself
What's my hair doing What's my hair doing

Cause I wake up in the morning and I ask myself
What's my world doing What's our world doing

Gotta fix it up Gotta fix it now
If you wanna keep it nice stop playing around

Fix it up Fix it up

I wake up every morning and I ask myself
What's my hair doing What's my hair doing

Cause I wake up every morning and I’m lookin around
What all y’all doin What all y’all doin
Track Name: Loosen Up
Loosen up a little and take your time
There's no rush so take your time

Acting like your backs against the wall

Doesn't matter it's in the past they say
The sun will shine another day


Loosen up a little and take your time
There's no rush so take your time

Take a deep breath it'll be alright

I'm here with you whatever you need
As long as you want with you I'll be

So you got to pick yourself up dust yourself off
Try again

So you got to pick yourself up dust yourself off
You got this


Now I know it’s not that simple just to say
It’ll all be ok
I just want you to know how much I care
and if you want I’ll get out of your hair
Track Name: Without You
I like to sit in the snow while it’s falling
And catch every single flake I can
I just wanna stay here forever

I love walking with you in the morning
The sunlight just lights up your face
I just wanna stay here forever

I love walking with you in the rain
All I can hear is your laughter
And speckles of rain all around us

I want to end every day with your smile
Laying beneath the great starlight
And breathing in deeply your sweetness

I don’t wanna live without you
I can’t seem to think without you
I don’t know what’s next in my life but I know for sure
I don’t wanna live it without you

I don’t wanna live without you
I can’t seem to breathe without you
I don’t know what’s next in my life but I know for sure
I don’t wanna live it without you
Track Name: Change
You say that you care but you're lying
Cause I know you're not even trying

Is this how you want your life to go
Cause if you want bigger things, it sure don't show

What do you want
You're only here once
The world gives only one chance
Don't waste your soul

You are what you eat and you are what you do
So all of this sitting around is becoming you
