XLN Audio’s Addictive Keys (Review)

Not to long ago, I and a good friend, invested in a beautiful edition of Addictive Key’s collection, Studio Grand.
For starts, you are given a triple channel perspective to play around with. Being able to adjust and customize the proximity of your studio grand. Each equipped with 2 fx sends (Delay and reverb)
Extremely satisfied with this virtual instrument and will be using this as my primary piano for any piece here on out.

The 4 R’s Of Resilience

Those moments where the only tangible decision is to ram a fist threw a wall.
Our inability to control frustration or rage can be manageable or down right impossible to tame.
Victimized by this in the passed week is I. Hasn’t been the time to try and start bullshit, come to me with pity annoyances, or start an argument over immature or stupid things. I will not react in a way that’s gonna be likable. Advocating now.
It’s a temporary shift.
Addictions are nasty. Breaking away from the very grasp that they can have on our nerves can feel almost impossible and without a doubt, life threatening. “I ain’t gonna do that! Ewwwww!.”
If the time is now to recognize, react, and run, then respond.
Love you.

Heads up.

Just a quick note, i’m editing things and constantly doing updates, so if something looks a bit weird or, “what the hell?” just bare with what you may see momentarily. You guys rock.
Check out the other song I have released right now for, Hang Low.


New EP?

Yup, I’ve begun working on a new EP called, Hang Low. Heavily focused on suicide and the unspoken hurt that many experience. There’s a dark stigma to the topic that no one is ever comfortable shedding light onto. Understood and justified. We’re referring to a super harsh reality regarding mental health and it’s instability at times. Myself being a heavy victim of the struggle.
This ties into my second album, Changes and the truth about coping and experiencing these episodes…
I don’t fuck around or really care to put on a fake front. I choose to be honest with you.
I currently have 3 songs written up for the release. Two of which are on my Soundcloud profile.
I’ll have more updates regarding the release soon. For now, enjoy and please….. Never hesitate to reach out to me for an ear. I believe in a real therapy. Talking and or the presence of an open ear can make all the difference for someone’s very well being. Your life has validation, purpose, and a place. Look further within your skin cells. Don’t seek that from an outsider’s vantage point.
Love you


Is it worth it?

This passed weekend was pretty awesome. To make a long story a bit more brief, we had some friends come east from Chicago. Helped celebrate for a friend of ours here in kalamazoo for her birthday. As you can probably imagine, alcohol and mary jane became a helpful push for the atmosphere and energy. Common amongst these types of occasions, yeah? It’s something we partake to settle the mind, diminish stress, or plainly relieve pain. Both have their pros and cons.
I like to speak my mind. The internet has it’s trollies and it’s spazzes who take everything to heart, so, I don’t mind diving in.
I’m a pot head and love every minute of it. I also do drink but not as much. Both have their rates of attraction and I’d rather be lost in the green then the liquids.
Yet, I think…. Back before the whole “adult” thing happened, I didn’t need this shit to prosper my life. This was before my short term memory loss became a problem.
I’ve been very grateful that I can use something like weed to heighten creativity and ease my ADHD, but, is it worth the memory loss at times? No, it’s not severe, but, it grows.
I know i’m not the only one. Just talking here…
