"This Summer Air" 8th Anniversary
🍃☀️8 YEARS TODAY☀️🍃
I’m always very careful when I go to make track lists for albums or EPs as it’s important for me that the body of work tells a complete story.
“This Summer Air,” my Pop-Rock 3rd Studio Album, was no exception.
I chose to put “Escape” as the album lead-off track because it was exactly what I was experiencing around the time I needed to finalize the track list and send #TSA off to be distributed.
It’s a song about getting out of a bad situation even though you still see the best in whatever you’re going through. A “taking off the rose-colored glasses” moment, of you will. 🌹
I always wanted the song to be a single because it meant so much to me and after I heard it back completely finished it served as a wake-up call to me. Sadly, it never came to pass...
💥Sometimes a bad situation is just a bad situation and the best thing you can do is leave and take care of yourself. 💥
I hope 🙏🏻 that if you listen to this album, you listen to it IN ORDER at least once and that the music helps you in whatever situation or phase of life you might be in.
The record itself is a generally feel-good album which is why I chose “Celebration” to be the last song on the album. When you reached that last song I wanted my listeners to exit with GOOD feelings and feel happy with the top down as the enjoy the warm, summer weather. ☀️🌷🍃🚗
Even though my music is sonically different than this album, I still feel very connected to it.
As I write and produce my upcoming EP, I’ve found that I can draw similar comparisons between these two bodies of work: I’m in the strongest and most confident place I’ve ever been in my life and I can’t wait to share that with you.
I still get emails from people saying they’ve discovered this album for the first time and they have it on repeat in their car stereos which just makes me so happy. 🔊🔊🔊
So until my next EP comes out, and if you’re into music that isn’t so dance/electronic, take a listen to “This Summer Air.” 🍃
And don’t forget to be kind to one another. I hope the album inspires you to have compassion. Remember, “we all need Somebody,” sometimes. 😉
