If we only pay attention to social media, it might seem like I've been quiet for a while but the reality is that making this record has taken me two struggling years while I was also intensely touring, releasing a bunch of music videos and two more albums with my other music project (Northwest), besides releasing various singles and an EP as Mariuk. I want you to know whtIt's crazy to think that almost 4 years ago I didn't know anything about music production. In this time, I have learnt a lot about music theory, music production, sound engineering, creating a business from ground zero and what self-discipline really means. I've also had a lot of time to think and to know myself. This record is the result of all of that. I believe that, in some way, it has healed me from a lot of s**t I've been carrying around for years, it almost feels like a catharsis. I know it's not perfect and I'm already thinking about about how to make a way better record soon, but I've poured my soul into these songs (as cheesy as it sounds) and I love them. I hope you like them too.
Thank you all for being there on the other side. Ever since I was a teen I've always wanted to belong somewhere and I never felt that way until I started making music and connecting with people through this magical language that, more often than not, goes beyond and deeper than words. And I want you to know that I feel so f***ng good and grateful that you're here with me, even when I feel self-doubt and the impostor syndrome (which is very often haha).
Anyway, all I'm trying to say is: thank you and I'm going to make a lot of awesome music, this is just only the beggining (insert smily demon emoji here). Let's do it 🤘
I love u,
