My new full-length album, ‘Action Adventure,’ is released today. There are 14 tracks, encompassing my most recent musical thoughts and ideas. The album has no guests, no collaborations, and no features. As such, it represents a wholly personal artistic statement, albeit one indebted to countless sources of inspiration: the samples I use, the artists I respect, the genres I admire, and those close to me, past and present, who have encouraged me and supported my journey. If there are to be more albums in the future, I’ll be grateful. But if this is to be the last…because indeed, one never knows…it would be a fitting end to a charmed life in music. I hope it finds a place within your own sonic tapestry.
