When I started this musical journey I wasn't sure of where I would end up, as I had just finished touring my Spanish album and was tentative about singing in English again.
I was seriously considering retiring from my career as a pop musician and pursuing other music-related and creative endeavors.
Slowly, but surely, I began to record again and eventually found a new freedom within my voice and an overwhelming sense of excitement about making pop music.
That is the excitement you hear on The Spirit Indestructible. Nostalgia is a huge theme. All my old memories suddenly became crystal clear to me, and I found myself re-visiting my past in a fresh and colourful way, on songs such as "Parking Lot?, produced by Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins, where I detail good times in my hometown, sort of like my own take on "Summer Of 69'". On "Big Hoops", my swagger-in-spades, rhyme-writing 14-year-old self finds liberation through hip-hop and r and b attending "music jams" in suburban Victoria. Ironically, Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins, the producer of this song, and seven others on my album, is responsible for creating a lot of my favourite songs from the 90's as I eventually realized while examining the plaques his studio walls. When Rodney and I work together, I feel like a child in a playground, uninhibited and happy. We have a great time.
All of these songs have incredible meaning to me and were written in moments of intense personal growth. Overall, I would describe this album as raw and honest- a friendly punch in the face.
These tracks combine hard beats with strong, dynamic, sometimes pretty vocals. It's overall, quite a simple, at times juvenile album that was very liberating to create and gave me immense joy. I hope you enjoy it too!
