about

"In The Midst of a War" is the first lyric of the 6th song on the album, which acts as the turning point of the war. It is a ballad that manages to change my perception on life because I wasn't really in war with myself, I had won it all along. Even though each of these 11 battles have their ups and downs of their own, the common thread that ties these songs together is perseverance–that of a true fighter. There are many different elements–lyrically and musically–throughout the record that culminate in a colorful succession of battles that I personally have had thus far. The anger was channeled through sounds of heavier rock, while the lust and enamourment are translated into jazz and blues. All of my self-fulfilling tracks come in a variety of genres: riveting guitar riffs, transformative latin percussion and downright, feel-good soul. I hope you can relate with my personal struggles and persevere through them. "In The Midst of a War" is an album with which you can dwell on the past for a split second, but then you'll raise your gaze and move forward.
