This album sparked… well out of boredom. We are all going through the same slowdown, and I really need something to do. The issue with me making music is that I really need a reason to do it. I haven’t done a project in a couple of years, and even now it took me a long time to start.
When I eventually did start, I found my purpose in creating the album. I wanted to give back. We’re all going through trying times. I have the privilege of creating music throughout this and you have the privilege of buying it, if you choose so. That’s why, if I’m able to make money for myself, I want to make sure that I can give more to others. That’s why I want to donate 19% of the proceeds to COVID-19 relief.
I know what you’re thinking because I think it to. “Where is this money going to go? What does COVID-19 relief mean?” I want to reach the most marginalized that are affected by this pandemic because most of our poor, undocumented residents, and essential workers are being overlooked by our government. Schools where children receive the benefit of free lunches are closed and unemployment has skyrocketed. That’s why I’ve decided to give to Feeding America.
